  • Endeavour Energy to provide reliable power for 2.4 million Australians

Default Alternative Text
EcoStruxure ADMS will provide safer, more efficient, and more reliable network management.

Schneider Electric has commenced work on a new project with Endeavour Energy to integrate its EcoStruxure ADMS, a world-leading smart grid management system for utilities.

Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announces a new partnership with Endeavour Energy, which will see the integration of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™ ADMS (Advanced Distribution Management System) to enhance the safety, efficiency and reliability management of Endeavour Energy’s distribution network.

Electric utilities in Australia face a multitude of challenges: pressure for increased reliability and reduced carbon emissions, adoption of distributed renewable generation and energy storage, increase in severe weather patterns and network outages, and aging infrastructure.

Addressing these challenges, the integration of EcoStruxure™ ADMS provides Endeavour Energy with leading critical grid management capabilities that will improve outage response, optimize evolving grid operation and manage increasing distributed energy resources impacts.  

Andrew Bettenay, CIO, Endeavour Energy, said: “Our number one priority is to provide safe, reliable, and affordable energy to more than 2.4 million people living and working across Sydney’s Greater West, the Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands, Illawarra and the South Coast. We chose Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure ADMS solution because its world-leading smart grid control capabilities will reduce power losses, network operation costs and outage times, while improving the safety and reliability of our network for the benefit of our customers now and for generations to come.”

Gareth O’Reilly, Managing Director Pacific for Schneider Electric, said: “Our goal is to help our customers address the energy trilemma; accessible, sustainable and reliable power. We are proud to partner with Endeavour Energy to future-proof their network and strengthen the reliability and efficiency of their power service offering for their customers today and many years to come.”

Simon Mouat, Vice President of Energy for Schneider Electric, said: “This new ADMS project will help further digitize the Australian Grid. Bridging Endeavour Energy’s OT and IT environment, EcoStruxure ADMS provides an all-in-one product that will truly digitize their power systems. It will introduce mobile switching as part of a suite of field force mobility tools and services, enable reliability improvements through distribution automation, and provide a way of managing future embedded generation and emerging technologies.”

Endeavour Energy’s network is set to accommodate dramatic growth, including the North West and South West priority growth areas of Sydney, which will see 500,000 new residents connect to the grid over 30 years. These are new cities the size of Wollongong or Canberra, and their success will be linked to how homes and businesses access, generate and distribute electricity as our world becomes more electrified.
Andrew Bettenay, CIO, Endeavour Energy concluded: “This partnership forms part of our world class technology program designed to help Endeavour Energy become the best performing network in Australia in the next five years.“
 
EcoStruxure ADMS is a best-in-class smart grid management system used by 75 utility companies that serve 70 million end-customers around the world, including major Australian distribution utilities. Gartner recognized Schneider Electric as a leader in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for ADMS, with the highest scores for all three targeted use cases: improved outage response, optimized grid operations and distributed energy resource (DER) management.
