Enterprise-Wide Digital Transformation

Project Challenge

ENGIE, the largest power producer in the world, chose the C3 AI Suite on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to create and implement a platform for enterprise-wide digital transformation and a center for IoT excellence, spanning across customer service, metering, energy management and maintenance.

The first applications developed and deployed into production on the ENGIE digital platform include: performance optimization for gas power plants, efficiency optimization of heating and cooling plants, energy analysis and management for enterprise and consumer customers, and anomaly detection of wind turbines.

€1.5 billion in estimated annual economic benefit

To undertake a digital transformation spanning ENGIE’s operations across 24 business units in 70 countries required a substantial staffing investment from the company. ENGIE and C3.ai trained over 70 employees—including more than 20 data scientists—on the C3 AI Suite.

Across the five lines of business, ENGIE works with C3.ai on a roadmap for business and residential solutions, decentralized solutions for cities and territories, gas operations, and electricity production

To assess use cases and build the roadmap, ENGIE and C3.ai established a center of excellence (CoE) comprised of over 30 personnel working on applications and servicing the business. ENGIE also established a Digital Factory with a staff of 100 experts to propagate technologies and expertise worldwide.

Today, ENGIE applications ingest data from over 1 million connected devices at intervals ranging from every 1 to 15 minutes. The number of connected devices will grow to more than 5.5 million devices by 2020. To connect to the diverse devices ENGIE uses in operations, the C3 AI Suite provides support for a variety of device interfaces such as SigFox, DCS, EtaPRO, SCADA, Linky, and AWS IoT Core.
