Infor d/EPM Predicts and Optimizes Wind Power Station Profitability

Munich – April 23, 2019Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, has announced that EKZ Renewables AG has deployed Infor d/EPM, a sophisticated business intelligence solution to help support the company’s continuous growth. Infor d/EPM enables EKZ to optimize reporting, planning and forecasting of their wind power projects.

EKZ Renewables AG, based in Zurich, maintains a portfolio of wind parks across Europe. It aims to generate green electricity certificates as well as to achieve a corresponding return on invested capital.

Infor d/EPM is used to carry out profitability calculations for wind parks, which thus provides a holistic overview of its current business development. In addition, the solution enables forecast revenues, costs, financing expenses and cash returns. Infor d/EPM helps the EKZ Renewables to analyze to what extent individual power stations operate in a profitable manner, taking all investments made into account.

“We are very pleased about the implementation of Infor d/EPM for our team and are excited about the software's performance”, said Christian Hürlimann, managing director of EKZ Renewables AG. “The dashboards provide us with helpful tabular and graphical evaluations of our activities. With this information, we can derive practical recommendations for our next steps.”

“With the introduction of our strategic performance management solution Infor d/EPM, we support the planning, reporting and analysis of the wind park portfolio of EKZ Renewables AG. This shows how versatile Infor software can be”, said Jörg Jung, managing director central and east Europe at Infor. “We are looking forward to supporting EKZ Renewables AG in future projects that will help promote renewable energy.”
