Vancouver, BC, November 27, 2023—Copperleaf® Technologies Inc.

Copperleaf and Siemens have entered into a co-innovation partnership to integrate technical planning with value-based investment planning.

“We are excited to join forces with Copperleaf. A key focus of this collaboration will be to integrate and optimize technical and investment planning to increase the potential for cost savings and improved reliability. Well-informed investment decisions help utilities unlock much-needed grid capacity,” added Sabine Erlinghagen, CEO of Grid Software at Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “As the world embarks on an ambitious journey towards a more sustainable and decarbonized energy future, the complexities and challenges faced by the energy industry have never been greater. It is imperative that organizations adopt a holistic approach, considering both the strategic and operational aspects of their assets and businesses.”
