Eni, Google Cloud and BCG for the energy transition

Eni, Google Cloud and BCG for the energy transition
It is called Open-Es and brings together the experience of groups such as Eni, Google Cloud and Boston Consulting to shape a real open digital platform that will be able to support any company interested in energy transition processes. The concept is clearly very clear to Eni, which intends to build a real business model on the energy transition, but at the same time it is clear to Google Cloud that it will shape its offer on this transformative process.

The Open-es platform will allow all suppliers involved in the energy transition path to enhance their experiences and best practices in sustainability making them available to all participating companies and thus accessing new business and value creation opportunities.

Open ES: a platform for the energy transition

The three groups lay the foundations, but the project is open to anyone who wants to be part of it: Eni lays the foundation stone and any company in the energy sector or the industrial chain will be able to re-enter it to offer its contribution in this attempt to “accelerate the path of trans energetic ition ". While a strategic vision of the project will come from Boston Consulting, technologies and expertise in the cloud, big data and artificial intelligence will come from Google Cloud. Decarbonization is only the first step, of course, because without a true transition there is only a starting point and no clear direction in front.

The platform will therefore have a "concrete approach with an industrial perspective" and will head to three distinctive features that become manifest of the overall project:

Centrality of information, with the aim of becoming a single point of sharing sustainability information, a reference source of information for benchmarks and statistics. This information will also be certified through validation mechanisms recognized by the network. A simple model with an incremental approach will be used to evaluate the sustainability performance of suppliers and, following a gap analysis, a development plan will be suggested to all participants. Supply chain and ecosystem mapping: information will be accessible and visible along all levels of the supply chain. Being able to achieve a mapping of the supply chain is one of the key objectives of the platform which will also allow to incentivize circular economy principles and mechanisms, taking into account that the new consumption models pass through a review of the supply chain. All levels of the supply chain will therefore be engaged and development services will be guaranteed for suppliers, also with a view to supporting the growth of the country system. Openness and integration: the platform will be open to all those who want to contribute to the sustainability of the supply chain (service providers, financial institutions, training consultants, enablers of the circular economy) with the aim of bridging the gaps of companies and accompanying them in a path of growth. Incentive mechanisms: finally, collaboration logics are envisaged between the various actors for a continuous improvement of sustainability performance. The collaboration area will also serve to identify partnership opportunities and ensure the exchange of experiences and best practices on sustainability issues, also using methods of social networks such as evaluations and interactions between participants. Finally, gamification techniques will be used to stimulate the virtuous behaviors of the players. If sustainability can truly be the central element of the competitive framework of the years to come, Open-Es will be a valuable element that can help companies to create a system on this front.
