Vancouver, BC, May 28, 2024—Copperleaf® Technologies Inc. (TSX:CPLF) (“Copperleaf” or the “Company”), announces the selection of its asset investment planning and decision analytics solution by ESB (Electricity Supply Board) Networks, the company responsible for building, operating, maintaining and developing the electricity network in the Republic of Ireland.

Serving 2.5 million customers, ESB Networks operates across the entire network–from generation, through transmission and distribution, to supply. The organization needed an out-of-the-box solution that could enhance decision making, optimize investment planning, and assist in regulatory reporting.

ESB Networks selected Copperleaf to support the company in its ambition to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2040 and become a world-class sustainable networks business. Copperleaf will empower ESB Networks to make risk-based, data-driven decisions, manage assets across the whole lifecycle, and ensure it can deliver reliable, sustainable services to its customers.

“ESB Networks joins a growing number of electric utilities leveraging Copperleaf to make the highest-value decisions in an evolving industry,” said Conor Toal, Regional Sales Manager at Copperleaf. “We are proud to welcome them to the Copperleaf Community and look forward to working with ESB Networks on their journey to net zero.”

“Electric companies face a number of key business challenges, including climate change, new technologies, and increased costs,” added Stefan Sadnicki, Managing Director for Copperleaf in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). “Copperleaf will allow ESB Networks to identify, plan and deliver the most valuable projects to build a safer, more resilient network for its shareholders, customers and communities.”
