Power & Utilities

Microsoft's Viewpoint

With increased regulation, economic, and environmental demands, optimizing the production of utility plant assets, improving plant safety, and evaluating the overall utility generation portfolio mix, continues to be a top priority for power generation companies worldwide. Maximizing profits in competitive power markets requires rich communications and collaboration between the generation plant, wholesale marketing, and generation dispatch. Microsoft and Microsoft partners provide a business and technology framework to drive innovation in generation by integrating information, technologies, and processes to deliver a highly connected ecosystem that empowers plant operating excellence. Based on Microsoft technologies, our partners’ solutions provide innovation to safely manage, maintain, and grow a complex generation asset portfolio, including coal, gas, hydro, nuclear, solar and wind farms.
