TrønderEnergi had doubled its renewable energy production from 2019 until 2022, from 1.9 TWh(Terawatt-hours) to almost 4 TWh. Together with their new ambitions, TrønderEnergi wanted to multiply that growth rate in the next ten years. But plans were halted by legacy IT systems. The IT platform suffered from a lack of development over time. Scaling was difficult, horizontally and vertically. Change and innovation were at a low pace. TrønderEnergi needed a comprehensive modernization and faced a significant transformation. The company needed a future-proof technology platform that could substantiate the aspirations.
By transforming today's legacy systems and applications to a cloud platform, TrønderEnergi would get a future-proof technology platform. TrønderEnergi choosed Microsoft Azure and moved on application by application to the Microsoft cloud. Some of the applications were moved as a lift and shift project, securing that the applications take full advantage of the cloud possibilities. But many applications have just been moved directly into the cloud, leaving an excellent opportunity to streamline, consolidate, and customize the applications later.
TrønderEnergi ended up using Microsoft’s Norwegian data centers for their cloud platform due to legal matters, latency, and, last but not least, the extra safety and security of having data and solutions within the country's borders.Get started - A holistic approach to cloud transformation
TrønderEnergi is a power producer located in the midst of Norway that produces renewable power from wind and hydro and provides services to the corporate market within electrification and energy efficiency. In 2020 TrønderEnergi’s total power production was 2.7 TWh.
The power producer is owned by 19 Norwegian municipalities and has seen rapid growth in the last few years. The company increased revenue from 642 million NOK in 2020 to 1.5 billion NOK in 2021 with an EBIT of 651 million. The municipalities shared a dividend of NOK 200 million.
The cloud transition project has been done in tight collaboration with TrønderEnergi, Tietoevry, Microsoft, and Volue. Since the project started in the middle of the pandemic, with participants being at the home office, Microsoft Teams have been the mainstay of the platform for communication and collaboration.Tietoevry & Microsoft partnership
By transitioning old legacy systems and applications to the Microsoft cloud, TrønderEnergi exchanges technical debt with a futureproof technology platform that is both agile and scalable and can grow.
The collaboration has been outstanding. Microsoft Teams have been the main platform for communication and interaction, and it has left the project with almost zero travel costs.
Using Microsoft’s Norwegian data centers for their cloud platform, TrønderEnergi ensures data and information are stored in compliance with national laws and regulations such as GDPR.
The collaboration with Tietoevry, Microsoft, and Volue has been outstanding. One success criteria were the close dialogue and the good cooperation we got, including using Teams. And it is clear that the platform we now have is an extremely important enabler to facilitate the growth we have had and which we will have
