As part of its digitalization initiative, Alliant Energy embarked on the project to replace its legacy solution to gain scalability, enhance integration, advance efficiencies, and leverage automation.

"Alliant Energy has been a valued strategic partner for us," said PCI Senior Vice President Khai Le. "This go-live represents a great new collaboration between our teams and will set a benchmark for similar implementations with other companies."

Alliant Energy owns a portfolio of electric generating facilities operating on a diverse mix of fuels, including coal, natural gas, and renewable resources. As part of its Clean Energy (News - Alert) Blueprint, Alliant Energy aspires to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the electricity it generates by 2050 by eliminating coal from its generation fleet while increasing use of renewable resources, such as solar.
