Every day, people involved in operations are faced with choices that can significantly impact their company's bottom line. These decisions must be made quickly, leaving no time for a traditional financial review. In this webinar, learn how EDF Renewables is using the PI system to combine operational data, third party data, and financial logic to create real-time and forecasted revenue streams for each of their assets. Understand how this results in bringing revenue based decisions out of the back office and into real-time operations, creating better understanding the financial impact of their actions and empowering them to work smarter. Gain practical insight into how this is done for grid scale wind and solar sites.

OSIsoft & the PI System are now a part of AVEVA.
