Digital Transformation and Cost Reduction in Power Plants

The incorporation of digital technology in power generation operations has led to significant cost reductions. Power plants that have adopted this technology could reduce their production costs by up to 27% in five years, generating annual savings of close to USD 21 million. These savings not only maintain the competitiveness of gas and coal plants in the face of declining renewable energy prices, but also contribute to the global reduction of CO2 emissions, with projections of up to 625 million metric tons fewer annual emissions by 2025.

Inkia Energy

Inkia Energy power group has presence in 5 Latin-American countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Guatemala and Peru, where the headquarters are. They manage a business portfolio of more than 3,300 MW of power generation and 2.3 million customers in power distribution.

Benefits of Big Data in the Energy Industry

Plant Modeler can make use of its Big Data to benefit in the reduction of deployment times, improvements in operator interventions, detection of energy fraud, decentralization of this sector and optimization of inefficient processes, among others. As the optimization of distribution with information and communication technologies we have the creation of the 'Smart Grid', improving the efficiency, safety and sustainability of electricity distribution, shortening response times to problems and raising the quality of service.

Customer Experience and Energy Efficiency

The implementation of smart meters empowers customers to monitor their consumption and take measures to reduce it, generating significant savings. In addition, with Plant Modeler you can have detailed information on energy consumption at your disposal, improving customer experience and promoting cost reduction.

Power Plant Optimization

The application of interconnected devices enables the monitoring and analysis of data to make more effective and efficient decisions. In solar generation plants, this data collection and analysis allows maximizing performance and managing assets more effectively, reducing downtime and improving reliability.

Advanced Grid Management

Plant Modeler facilitates more efficient grid management, enabling precise adjustments based on data collected by sensors and IoT devices. This optimizes renewable energy integration, reduces energy waste and prevents outages, benefiting both utilities and consumers.

Economic and Environmental Impact

The digital transformation of power plants is projected to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. It is estimated that by 2025, digitized plants could reduce global emissions from electricity production by 4.7%, which is equivalent to having 28.6 billion more trees on the planet or reducing the volume of emissions generated by 133 million cars. In addition, this transformation drives greater efficiency in the management of energy consumption, reducing environmental impacts.
