Vancouver, BC, January 25, 2017—The Copperleaf decision analytics solution has been chosen by United Energy and Multinet Gas. Copperleaf has been deployed as a Cloud solution for the electricity business to enhance their asset investment planning and decision-making processes, with plans to expand to the gas business and across IT investments. United Energy distributes electricity to more than 669,000 customers across east and south east Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula in the state of Victoria, Australia. Multinet Gas distributes natural gas to 692,000 customers throughout Melbourne’s inner and outer east, the Yarra Ranges and South Gippsland.
United Energy and Multinet Gas sought to establish a more sophisticated approach to managing their asset investment programs, which is a core function of their integrated asset management system. These programs often stretch over long periods of time and involve complex and competing investment scenarios. They recognized the need for an approach that would provide the capability and information to optimise volumes, costs and resource levels within defined time periods.
“We are challenged to deliver the greatest possible value to our organisation, stakeholders, and customers, taking into consideration the many constraints presented to capital portfolio managers in the utilities industry,” stated Mark Clarke, GM Networks – Electricity of United Energy and Multinet Gas. “Copperleaf stood out because it provided a proven method, process and software that will allow us to develop the optimal mix and timing of projects to meet our objectives.”
“We are thrilled to welcome United Energy and Multinet Gas to the growing group of peer companies that rely on Copperleaf to help them optimise their asset investment decisions,” stated Jason Apps, ARMS Reliability CEO. “We look forward to supporting them in their mission to enhance their portfolio planning, and provide an optimal investment approach in the face of competing resources and objectives.”
