Digitization is reinventing the way we produce, distribute, and use energy. This report details 12 ways that the digital transformation of energy management and automation drives benefits in CapEx, OpEx, and beyond. After helping thousands of customers navigate successful digital transformations, we’re ready to present a comprehensive report — using a global sample of 230 customers — on what we’ve learned.
Digital transformation may seem like an expensive prospect, but our customers’ projects demonstrate the opposite. Digitally interoperable solutions often integrate faster, last longer, and thus save CapEx. By embracing digitization, businesses can finally end fragmentation among stakeholders in the planning, design, installation, and commissioning stages.
OpEx often takes up a big chunk of a facility’s total cost of ownership. And yet, our customers’ digital transformation stories show that massive savings are possible. Future-ready facilities streamline operations through real-time monitoring, analytics, and expert advice. This report shows how such digitization saves OpEx across energy use, productivity, and maintenance.
