TRC Digital Overview

In a world where energy supply and consumption are becoming increasingly more dynamic, bidirectional, and complex, energy providers are challenged with maintaining a standard of safe, reliable and resilient power. Distributed energy resource (DER) technologies and associated go to market adoption models are proliferating at a staggering rate, amongst a backdrop where traditional utility customers are transitioning from consumers to prosumers, becoming more sophisticated and more insistent on a reduced carbon footprint. These changes are occurring in an environment where, in order to support the penetration of DERs, the grid infrastructure requires more intense and targeted maintenance, and the shift of previously centralized decision making to new devices that sit at the very edge of the grid.

To address the challenges and seize the opportunities provided by this new energy landscape, TRC Digital offers an array of expertise to provide to our client partners. Our experts have delivered fully integrated software solutions to well over 30 North American utilities. TRC Digital is an expert services and solutions integration team, focused specifically on implementing partner led software technologies that will bridge today's realities with tomorrow's possibilities. TRC Digital has partnered with a true best of breed collection of software providers that address critical needs in the areas of DERs, DER Planning & Validation, DER Optimization & Dispatch, customer engagement, and new grid infrastructure. Our team members become deeply engaged with each of our partners, providing both deep utility and vendor specific domain expertise, ensuring we provide our clients with holistic solutions that scale with our partner operations and customer expectations. We draw upon our experience delivering these solutions for the past decade and enhance them with the expanse of experience and capability of TRC.

Our team of experts have an average of 15 years of experience in their relative disciplines and have played an integral part in the evolution of both the technologies and the market acceptance of such.

We are focused - our integration and delivery approaches ensure we are driving the most value/highest ROI from the installation of OT systems into the utility IT landscape. Our aim is to deliver cost effective technology that solves today's challenges while enabling future opportunities for utilities and their customers.

We are committed - our track record combined with the half-century of TRC's execution accomplishments ensures our clients receive a reliable, scalable, and fully useable solution, and more importantly, one our client can trust, leverage, and build on, in the years ahead.

We partner with our clients - we listen to our clients to understand their business processes and help weave our software partner solutions into the very fabric of the client business, and in some cases that of end customers. Our clients' view us as the "go to" team as they face this emerging landscape and embrace the new energy future.
