This national electricity Transmission System Owner (TSO) has a vision to be a world leading grid company, providing quality, efficient transmission and market services for the benefit of all citizens.
Northern Ireland Electricity Networks Ltd (NIE Networks) owns the electricity transmission and distribution network and operates the electricity distribution network which transports electricity to over 860,000 customers. With over 1,200 employees, NIE Networks work around the clock to plan, build, repair and develop Northern Ireland’s 49,000km of electricity network.
The impact of contestability required NIE to place greater focus on identifying inefficiencies that occur through the process of planning a job relative to the costs that the job actually incurs.
NIE had no means to interrogate the data and quantify the extent of how much a job could be overspent/underspent or identify the key reasons.
