Reliance Energy Limited wins ESRI SAG Award


August 6, 2008

Reliance Energy, Ltd., in Maharashtra, India, has demonstrated vision and leadership, using ESRI's geographic information system (GIS) technology to better serve the world. To recognize this passionate approach to applying GIS solutions, ESRI presented the organization with the Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award on August 6, 2008, at the 28th Annual ESRI International User Conference (ESRI UC) in San Diego, California.

Reliance Energy is India’s largest integrated private sector power utility company that manages the generation, transmission, distribution, and trade of power. To improve efficiency for its four million customers, the utility chose to implement Miner & Miner’s ArcFM solution, based on ESRI’s ArcGIS software, for their Mumbai and Delhi Electric Distribution System. Today, more than 1,500 Reliance users access utility network data through ArcIMS technology from any place at any time.

The hallmark of Reliance Energy’s enterprise-wide GIS implementation is the integrated approach. Reliance’s IT department has successfully made their GIS a workspace for all field processes, from operations and maintenance to planning. The interface of GIS with other key systems helps utility managers and executives find new ways to optimize operations, increase work efficiency, and improve business processes.

“At ESRI, we are always deeply impressed by the innovation of our users," said Jack Dangermond, ESRI president. "We want to recognize the efforts of these individuals with our Special Achievement in GIS Award. This recognition is well deserved for how they've applied geospatial technology to address the needs of their industries and communities. They are defining GIS best practices."
