"Decarbonized energy and digital technology are the two driving forces of ENGIE going forward," ENGIE CEO Isabelle Kocher (Le Monde, May 4, 2016).

Although energy efficiency is primarily about taking eco-friendly steps to eliminate wasteful consumption, digital solutions can help by improving the efficiency of today's energy systems and those of tomorrow. Digital technology is playing an increasing role in controlling energy system performance. Most importantly, it enables the energy performance of industrial facilities, retail units and offices to be accurately measured as the basis for targeting precise areas in which energy efficiency can be improved.

Energy management and consumption control are priorities not only for industrial and commercial customers, but also for domestic customers. Monitoring consumption, comparing it with that of others, and finding out about specific actions that can optimize energy bills: all of these are made possible by the developments surrounding the Internet of Things, Big Data and artificial intelligence. ENGIE is using all these new tools to develop smart grids with the ability to adapt to the energy needs of individual customers in real time.
