Jean is a consultant who helps electricity grid stakeholders (electricity producers, transporter and distributors)
> to optimize their operational processes in order to be more efficient
> to integrate new technologies and vision in order to improve the way they work
In short, he helps them to develop the 'smart electricity grid' of the future, which will be easier to control and thus will improve the profitability of producers, transporters and distributors.
To do this, Jean combines 2 expertises:
> He's a business process optimizer: he helps companies to optimize their processes and to become more efficient, with less costs and thus better profits.
> He's an expert in the electricity value chain (producers, transporters and distributors).
Important: Renewable energy sources (wind and solar energy) will play a very important role in this smart grid of the future and is a major challenge right now!
There are 3 types of clients, all in the electricity value chain:
> producers: companies that produce electricity with renewable energy, coal power centrals, nuclear power centrals, ...
> transporters: companies that power the high-tension grid, usually large monopolists
> distributors: companies that power the low-tension grid, usually a bit smaller
These are all major companies having specific challenges and opportunities. Jean helps everyone of them towards a better, smarter, more profitable electricity grid where renewable energy plays an important role.
