Accelerating net-zero with real-time grid data
Dominion Energy is a leader in the clean energy transition, providing reliable, affordable power to nearly 7 million US customers. As part of their efforts to accelerate net-zero, the team was searching for a way to make sustainability data from across their grid available to customers in real-time. We worked with them to make it happen.
The team at Dominion Energy knew that their grid data could become a powerful competitive advantage. As consumers increasingly choose their providers based on their environmental footprint, having the ability to share energy source and performance information from across the network with stakeholders could help them stand out in a crowded field.
They came to us looking for cloud-based technology that would let them capture this data and share it easily and securely. They needed strong, scalable systems that could handle high volumes accurately and quickly — while ensuring cybersecurity.
We helped the team deploy AVEVA™ Data Hub and AVEVA™ PI System. Now, data from across the network can be captured in real-time and easily shared across the organization and with key stakeholders.
This, in turn, allows Dominion’s customers to prove their own net-zero commitments to investors and environmental, social and governance (ESG) auditors.
This data is now a crucial selling point for Dominion, encouraging potential customers to choose their services over other providers.
As an added benefit, AVEVA™ PI System has helped Dominion bring their vision of an autonomous data-driven culture to life.
Being able to rapidly pull different data sources and insights together has given teams the ability to quickly diagnose and return power-generation units to service. These technologies have also opened up monitoring of power station performance and early detection of performance issues and controllable losses. Today, Dominion continues to build on the system as they pursue their goal of reaching net-zero.
