ENGIE Creates Digital Platforms to Accelerate Zero-carbon Energy Transition, Powered by AWS

ENGIE, headquartered in France, is a global energy company focused on renewable and low-carbon distributed energy infrastructures, helping its clients achieve a carbon-neutral future.  

In this video, Biljana Kaitović, executive vice president of digital and IT and group chief information officer (CIO), discusses the world’s hunger for energy and the critical role that data and digital technology play in developing energy sources that are accessible, affordable, secure, and green.

The company built a “Common Data Hub” on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to make more innovative use of over one petabyte of data across thousands of projects. Built using AWS technologies such as Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, AWS Glue, and Amazon SageMaker, ENGIE helps cities—such as Barcelona—reduce energy consumption by up to 15 percent. In addition, the ability to scale the company’s infrastructure up during peak hours and down during less active hours saves ENGIE 60 percent in cloud runtime costs.

AWS technology helps ENGIE produce renewable energy more efficiently, and ENGIE provides AWS with electricity from wind and solar in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, and France, helping AWS reach its goal of powering its operations with 100 percent renewable energy.


Our “Common Data Hub” was built using Amazon S3, which provides the scalability, data availability, security, and performance we need."
