Electric Utility Asset Investment Planning

In the next decade, the electric utility ecosystem will be more complex, utilizing several forms of clean energy.

To ensure critical asset infrastructures are sustainable and adaptable physically and financially, decisions-makers must continue leveraging the organization’s collective expertise, innovation, and vision.

Timely and best decisions require a flexible Asset Investment Planning (AIP) solution that can evolve over life cycle decades and be handled by decision-makers without any programming expertise.
AIP embodies modularity, transparency, digitalized expertise, and predictive analytics for CAPEX/OPEX optimization amid challenges involving resource limitations and aging infrastructures. AIP solutions scope out profitable, evidence-based strategies. They assist in targeting levels of service, stabilizing rate bases, and achieving the desired infrastructure reliability at the lowest cost.

Hydro-Québec TransÉnergie

Hydro-Québec TransÉnergie (HQT) manages one of North America’s most extensive electric power transmission systems, serving local populations and supplying power to three Canadian provinces and four U.S. States. Every year, HQT invests over $2B to maintain its network and ensure its sustainability.

Electric Utility Asset
Management Challenges

Strategic Trajectories

Identifying the right decisions for evolving the current aging electric utility networks toward sustainability requirements of the future, while responding to current financial (CAPEX/OPEX, ROI) and physical (asset reliability and performance) objectives.

Rate Case Management

With electric utility rates being a key source of revenue for regulated utilities, asset management professionals require solutions for managing rate justification cases. Transparent and consistent processes for producing reliable investment planning scenarios are essential for credible reporting of assets.

Workforce Turnover

As retirement and transferring out loom, safeguarding and automating subject matter expertise becomes imperative. This way, precious knowledge can be captured, formalized, and centralized.

How DIREXYON Suite Solves Utility
Asset Investment

DIREXYON Suite assists you in identifying the most profitable investment strategies for improved decision-making. Advanced predictive analytics capabilities enable inclusion of uncertainties that may not otherwise be adequately accounted for. You therefore become empowered to optimize decisions affecting levels of service, budgetary and resource constraints, as well as rate bases.

DIREXYON Suite benefits

Resilience and Sustainability

Augment operational resilience. Ensure asset health, safety, and reliability decades ahead, while simulating climate-related scenarios (i.e., carbon emissions) and other uncertain degradation factors.

Achieve Desired Levels of Service

Forecast asset evolution and proactively manage risk, while contributing to mitigation of potential service disruptions. Simulate asset evolution and apply decision policies digitalized from your organization’s expertise. Synchronize interventions with cross-asset work-bundling rules and simulate strategies with applicable constraints. Balance levels of service, risk, costs, and infrastructure sustainability.


DIREXYON Suite optimizes capital and operational expenditures, helping you make decisions that could improve asset sustainability and carbon footprint.

Data Transparency & Visibility

With specialized workforce retiring or transferring out, DIREXYON Suite safeguards institutional knowledge and experience by digitalizing decision policies in the form of drag-and-drop decision trees that are easily understood and handled in complete transparency without any programming skills required. Simplify auditing processes with full capabilities for reconstruction of all calculations and results. Benefit from a selection of diverse strategic trajectories that will facilitate rate case management.

Asset-Centric Simulation

DIREXYON Suite leverages a single source of truth to consolidate disparate systems and reduce the silo effect. Simulate asset evolution to assess the impacts of various investment scenarios on maintenance deficits and levels of service.

Perfect Balance:
Risk, Cost & Performance

DIREXYON Suite yields sustainable annual cost savings of 20-30% over an integral asset life cycle for a consistent level of service.
