Large companies need the adoption of technologies that have already proven their value and efficiency both at the level of companies and consumers, said Mircea Modran, Executive Director of Information Technology (CIO), Electrica.

Classical distribution and supply companies seek to combine the latest technologies with capital requirements and regulations, adopting innovations when they prove their value, says Mircea Modran.

“Generally, when talking about technology, the world is thinking about classical IT, but it is present in all companies. Beyond that, in the technology area, there is operational technology – such as SCADA and associated technologies in our case. It evolves very quickly … Beyond these classic areas, other new sectors have emerged – digitalization requires the transformation of society. The areas that have long been ignored are cyber security and data transmissions – strategic areas, for which it is very important to apply the latest technologies,” said Modran, at the 2019 Energy Strategy Summit, an event organized by

“In these parameters, the concept of innovation has various connotations – but I want to remember the technological division – in which the adoption of technology by the enthusiasts and early adopters and the mass adopters – the last in chain. At a company like Electrica we do not allow ourselves to be enthusiastic, but either not to be the last. Electrica is trying to be in the area where value for us and consumers is already proven,” Modran said.
