Digital strategy and operations company Accenture is joining with engineering group Siemens to start a smart grid company.

Called OMNETRIC, it’s offering utility companies ways to manage data and their business operations to improve energy efficiency, grid operations and reliability.

It will combine technologies from managing electricity distribution to real-time grid operations with IT systems.

It will also include managing data from electricity meters, smart metering and demand response, as well as managing energy use and virtual power plants which are used for load management.
