Elia is Belgium’s high-voltage transmission system operator (30 kV to 400 kV), forming part of the renowned Elia Group. Operating over 8,700 km of lines and underground cables, Elia plays a key role in the energy market and the interconnected electricity system at the heart of Europe. Their mission centers on promoting the development of an efficient, transparent, and fair electricity market for the benefit of consumers.
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. To tackle the complexity of optimizing investment planning for an uncertain future, Elia chose the Copperleaf solution. With Copperleaf Portfolio™, Elia can create the optimal investment portfolio that maximizes value while respecting various constraints. Copperleaf allows Elia to run advanced scenario and sensitivity analyses to ensure the energy company can adapt swiftly to change, re-plan with confidence, and make the highest value investment decisions.
Elia recently participated in the Copperleaf AIPM Forum in Brussels, where they connected with other thought leaders in the asset management and investment planning space from the water, gas, electricity, and transport sectors. Discover what clients like Elia had to say 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!
