Powerco is New Zealand’s second-largest electricity and gas distribution utility with approximately 1.1 million customers across 446,000 connections. Powerco implemented the Copperleaf® Decision Analytics Solution in 2020 to provide:
- A consistent and transparent approach to making informed network investment decisions, that reflects customers’ requirements and Powerco’s values and objectives
- The assurance of long-term sustainability of the business—by ensuring network investment plans deliver the lowest risk and highest value to its customers and shareholders, within the resource constraints they face
- A strong means for validating investment plans to external stakeholders, in particular the regulators
- A solid foundation to support ongoing advancements in asset management capabilities and strategies
Copperleaf’s Decision Analytics solution provides Powerco with a consistent and transparent approach to making informed network investment decisions, that reflects our customers’ requirements and Powerco’s values and objectives.
Copperleaf was very responsive and supportive, and showed a genuine desire to see Powerco succeed in not only completing implementation, but delivering a result that meets our business needs.
If you put together the requirement for ESG and sustainability, with a focus on asset management, our very success depends on how we can deliver successful outcomes through our asset management.
