Rheinische NETZGesellschaft mbH (RNG) manages and operates over 30,000 km of distribution networks for electricity, gas, water, and district heating, supplying approximately 2 million customers in and around Cologne, Germany. RNG manages 25 networks with interfaces to different asset owners and asset service providers through centralized asset management.

- One consistent investment portfolio available in a centralized, enterprise-wide platform

- Enhanced decision making with full traceability and comparability
