Highlights 2016

Development and Innovation

ENGIE recognises that technology and digitalisation are becoming increasingly important in implementing intelligent solutions for customers. We also recognise that technologies on their own are not enough. We believe the people who deliver our services, empowered by new technologies, provide the perfect combination.

Celebrating our drive for innovation

A culture of innovation is essential to the future growth of our business and ENGIE’s annual Innovation Week showcase event in June provides an opportunity to celebrate and share innovative ideas globally throughout the Group. In the UK, for example, hackathons, debates, conferences and exhibitions were based on themes such as corporate responsibility, energy transition, smart cities, energy storage and green mobility.

Digital investment in data analytics & robotic automation

ENGIE acquired digital energy management specialists C3 Resources in 2016 and will be using its C3NTINEL platform to enhance the way the business analyses energy data for customers. ENGIE has also created a virtual workforce using in-house robotic process automation (RPA) capability. RPA can be utilised 24/7 to bring greater speed, accuracy and consistency to many repetitive tasks.

UK Advisory Board provides expert insight

ENGIE has announced the formation of an Advisory Board in the UK, chaired by Sir Michael Rake. The UK Advisory Board members have been selected to provide ENGIE with expert insight in areas such as combining energy and services capabilities, increasing integration with customers, becoming a leader in decentralised energy and the practical application of appropriate digital technologies.

Recognition for sustainability and safety performance

2016 was an award-winning year for ENGIE, having won the Sustainable FM Index (SFMI) 2016 and been highlighted as a leader in energy services providers in the Verdantix Green Quadrant® UK Energy Services 2016 report. Our continued commitment to occupational health and safety was also recognised at the 2016 RoSPA Awards - with a 23rd consecutive Gold Medal Award.
