Elia is Belgium’s high-voltage transmission system operator (30 kV to 400 kV), operating over 8,700 km of lines and underground cables. Boasting a pivotal location in Europe, it is a key player in the energy market and the interconnected electricity system. Elia is focused on promoting the development of an efficient, transparent, and fair electricity market for the benefit of consumers. Together with their partner company in Germany, 50Hertz, they are part of Elia Group.
Elia is a frontrunner in planning the energy transition, creating long-term project portfolios that address both the replacement of existing assets as well as the needed extensions to accommodate the decentralization of the energy grid. Optimized investment planning for an uncertain future becomes too complex for traditional tools, that’s why Elia selected the Copperleaf solution. With Copperleaf Portfolio™, Elia can create the optimal investment portfolio that maximizes value while respecting multiple constraints. The ability to run advanced scenarios and sensitivity analyses provides Elia with the flexibility to easily respond to change to ensure the highest value decisions are being made.
The Copperleaf AIPM Forum in Brussels connected thought leaders in the asset management and investment planning space from water, gas, electricity, and transport companies in Belgium and the Netherlands. Find out what clients like Elia thought about the event:
From the start, it was clear that the Copperleaf team were always focused on customer satisfaction and the success of the project. They really went the extra mile to understand our processes and business needs.
A key benefit of Copperleaf Portfolio is continuous planning—being able to follow up on the current portfolio of infrastructure projects by comparing the planned and actual performance of all projects.
Being able to simultaneously run multi-constraint portfolio exercises and perform quick scenario and sensitivity analyses on the portfolio is a significant improvement.
I enjoyed the AIPM Forum in Brussels. It was a great opportunity to connect with people. The dynamic format ensured that we had enough time during presentations and breaks to share thoughts on the challenges we all face, which was interesting and instructive!
