Whether you’re an Electricity DNO or a Gas TNO, we operate solutions in Energy generation, transmission and distribution sectors.
Based on our world leading software, Enterprise Decision Analytics (EDA), ORB has been developed to help Electricity Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) optimise investments, identify efficiencies and support regulatory planning. ORB enables DNOs to trade risk across asset classes, helping decision makers identify the best investment portfolio for the business.
ORB has been built on the foundations of the Common Network Asset Indices Methodology (CNAIM)
What is CNAIM?
The Common Network Asset Indices Methodology (CNAIM) was developed by the Great Britain Electricity Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) to provide the energy regulator, OFGEM, with a standardised method to benchmark Health Indices and Criticality of assets across the DNO licensees. CNAIM covers a total of 25 high level asset categories with additional defined sub-categories.
