Energy companies - both producers and utilities - are facing a challenging and changing business and regulatory environment over the next decade or so. As governments around the world pledge to be 'net zero' by 2050, new regulations are putting pressure on energy companies to accelerate the move to renewable energy sources whilst at the same time gearing up for more widespread electrification as consumers move away from carbon fuels.
The growth of renewable energy sources has also changed the way that utilities manage demand response. The old way of bringing generating units (typically coal or gas-fueled generators) online for peak demand hours no longer works. The distributed utility infrastructure that is used today requires a lot more flexibility and planning to meet - and to shape - consumer demand.
At the heart of the energy company challenges is data. Data to better manage and optimize the generating resources. Data to better inform the consumers about their energy consumption. And data to deliver better services and new product offerings to those consumers.
In this webinar, we will look at how energy companies and utilities can liberate and democratize their data to better utilize the strategic data assets that they already own. We will look at how the Denodo Platform, powered by Data Virtualization, has helped energy companies around the world access real-time data to drive their operations and allow them to respond to the ever-changing business environment.
