Morocco’s Power Company Partners with Atos & Siemens for Its Smart Grid Project
Morocco’s National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE) has teamed up with Atos and Siemens on smart management of power grid (smart grid), which uses IT to monitor power generation and demand in near real-time, providing more reliable and cost-effective system.
This project is part of the country’s digital transformation agenda. It will enable ONEE to deploy a smart energy metering platform to efficiently process the data collected by more than 100,000 smart meters that will be installed across the Kingdom.
This advanced solution optimizes energy consumption and management of the national grid while meeting Morocco’s growing energy needs and decarbonization commitment.
The project is part of the country’s Energy Efficiency program. It includes the implementation of Siemens’ EnergyIP meter data management platform, which enables the automated use of the collected data, raises awareness about energy consumption among end users and generates a more secure revenue stream.
Atos experts will be responsible for IT infrastructure and security tasks and will ensure the consistency of all technical solutions. They will also oversee the contract management and local services and will support the change management process.
“We are pleased to support ONEE in its great digital transformation efforts, in collaboration with our strategic partner Siemens. With more than 40 years of experience in the energy sector and an unwavering commitment to the decarbonization, Atos is ready to fully leverage the expertise of its NetZero Transformation Competence center to support the Moroccan energy grid transition,” said Giuseppe di Franco,Head of Resources & Services at Atos.
“Our EnergyIP solution, which we are implementing together with our strategic partner Atos, will help ONEE fully leverage the electricity consumption data and optimize the overall management of the grid”, said Sabine Erlinghagen, CEO Digital Grid at Siemens Smart Infrastructure.
“Our technology will support the digital transformation of ONEE and will serve as a foundation for future technological evolutions. We are proud to be a part of this change to bring more intelligence to the power grid in Morocco and support the country on its way to a more sustainable, low-carbon energy future”, he added.
