Providing electricity and gas to more than 11 million customers, EDP wanted to transform its business models through IoT and offer energy efficiency solutions supported by technology. In addition to reducing costs, EDP Brazil worked with Aquarius Software to bring a new way of accessing information, with sustainability and security as essential complements for its differentiation. EDP selected GE Digital technology including iFIX HMI/SCADA, Proficy Historian, and Proficy Plant Applications. Aquarius Software developed and deployed the solution that connects to EDP’s assets remotely and allows the EDP technical team and end users to get data in real time, while also improving operational awareness.
