€1.5 billion in estimated annual economic benefit
To undertake a digital transformation spanning ENGIE’s operations across 24 business units in 70 countries required a substantial staffing investment from the company. ENGIE and C3 AI trained over 70 employees—including more than 20 data scientists—on the C3 AI Platform.
Across the five lines of business, ENGIE works with C3 AI on a roadmap for business and residential solutions, decentralized solutions for cities and territories, gas operations, and electricity production
To assess use cases and build the roadmap, ENGIE and C3 AI established a center of excellence (CoE) comprised of over 30 personnel working on applications and servicing the business. ENGIE also established a Digital Factory with a staff of 100 experts to propagate technologies and expertise worldwide.
Today, ENGIE applications ingest data from over 1 million connected devices at intervals ranging from every 1 to 15 minutes. The number of connected devices will grow to more than 5.5 million devices by 2020. To connect to the diverse devices ENGIE uses in operations, the C3 AI Platform provides support for a variety of device interfaces such as SigFox, DCS, EtaPRO, SCADA, Linky, and AWS IoT Core.

"Trying to do it ourselves isn’t really feasible given the volumes of data that we deal with in ENGIE, so having an end to end tool that’s fully integrated is extremely beneficial."
