What is the future of energy?
Vrinda has developed a Utility 2.0 capability maturity model to help utilities assess their current technology, business, operations and market capabilities against future states.
Through this effort, we are able to help utility leadership understand opportunities and challenges in achieving the future state. We help develop a prioritized roadmap for our clients that can be shared with all utility executives and set them on a path to success.
What is the right business model?
The debate about the Utility of the Future is driven by changing customer preferences, advances in clean energy technologies, ever-falling clean technology prices and increased scrutiny due to climate change concerns. C-level executives are concerned about pace of change, regulatory and policy uncertainty and lack of successful business models of utility transformation.
We work with C-level executives and key decision makers to help develop long-term visions and focus on strategic business models based on current and future market trends. Our deep utility industry experience sets us apart. We offer honest insights about the Future of Utility business and help to develop implementable roadmaps and business models for our clients.
How to monetize the value of DERs?
Renewable energy technologies are transforming utility operations in significant ways. Focused investment in solar, electric vehicles, and energy storage solutions has brought renewable technologies into the mainstream. After decades of resistance, utilities have started embracing these new technologies. For many utilities in developed markets, the deployment of these technologies creates a business imperative to improve a lagging demand for electricity and hence long-term business sustainability.
However, renewable technology integration creates large operational challenges. If not managed, these technologies can deteriorate the stability and reliability of electricity grids. Contrary to the belief that distributed generation can improve voltages in long distribution feeders, these technologies may create harmonics and stability issues in weak grids. Utilities need to understand the impacts of renewable technologies, grid design, and technology integration to take advantage of clean and sustainable technologies. Utilities need to examine the resilience of their current grids and what is necessary to manage renewable integration.
What to expect from Digital Transformation?
Vrinda helps clients evolve to harness new technologies and business models that can lower costs, reduce emissions, strengthen resiliency, and create new revenue opportunities. Our services include:
Technical Specification Development
The traditional procurement specification approach applied to new technologies results in long, delayed or failed procurement. Vrinda’s understanding of technology provider requirements as well as utility objectives uniquely position us to help utilities design balanced technical specifications.
Implementation Management Services
Managing the implementation of new and emerging technologies requires new approaches. The Vrinda team has been working with most progressive utilities to manage new technology implementation issues for last 5 years.
While new technologies and solutions are emerging, a traditional system integration approach of an using off-shore factory of developers and integrators does not work. We work on-site with utility technology and business teams to ensure that legacy systems are integrated with new solutions to deliver maximum value.
