It’s undeniable – we are in the age of data and those who harness it will own the future. For renewable energy, reliance on data is not only about the future, but also about survival. The nature of intermittent renewable resources and the increased grid dependency on renewable portfolios have made it more challenging for independent renewable generators. As a key player in the renewable energy space EDF Renewables has relied on operational data to meet this challenge. EDFR is leveraging AWS technology for visibility into assets performance and equipment. It created a global “Data Lake” to gain operational insight to all its worldwide assets into the cloud in a centralized framework. EDFR’s AWS data lake empowers asset managers to drive insights that help reduce costs, drive new revenue, and provide greater transparency into asset in operations.
