The changing landscape of the energy sector is driving the uptake of new service-based models for the maintenance and care of electrical infrastructure, concludes a new White Paper from Vattenfall Networks Solutions.
Launched this week, Vattenfall’s free-to-download White Paper is essential reading for anyone concerned with the ownership and management of high-voltage electrical infrastructure in energy-intensive businesses where network stability is business-critical.
Written in jargon-free, uncomplicated language, the White Paper – which can be accessed from Vattenfall’s website, communicates a clear commercial case for Power-as-a-Service (PaaS).
Vattenfall’s PaaS service, which is the first of its kind in the UK, provides major energy users with power services in exchange for a fixed monthly fee. It can help major energy users by freeing up significant working capital from their high voltage energy infrastructure for reinvestment in their core business.
For anyone not yet familiar with this service model, the Paper offers an overview of PaaS and establishes the short, medium and long-term commercial advantages it brings to energy intensive businesses.
The White Paper will be of interest to multiple layers and job functions within organisations ranging from production and engineering professionals concerned about energy resilience and security and stability of energy supply; to CEOs and CFOs focused on the negative financial and brand-damaging impacts of power-outages and unplanned downtime.
The Paper also explains the operational, financial and environmental benefits of PaaS and provides examples of real-life best practice case studies where companies are already benefiting from the model.
“Managing your own high-voltage energy infrastructure is a complex task that requires significant resources, in terms of skills and capital,” says Stewart Dawson, Managing Director of Vattenfall Network Solutions.
“At a time when many businesses are exploring new ways to release value from their electrical assets, our Power-as-a-Service model provides peace of mind for major electricity users while freeing up financial capital. As PaaS is still a new commercial model, we felt that it was important to support the market with content that explains this model from the ground-up. We urge anyone concerned with maintaining a reliable energy supply in their business to read the paper and open up a conversation with us to see how we can help.”
