Top 6 Grid Operations Challenges for Companies to Fix

1. Lack of Comprehensive Project Overview

For many public infrastructure companies, obtaining a clear overview of projects, project areas, and portfolios is akin to a pilot trying to find a landing spot in dense fog. The vastness and diversity of projects demand centralized management platforms that offer comprehensive overviews. Without this, companies are often left grappling in the dark, leading to inefficiencies and project delays.

2. Inefficient Access and Collaboration

In this interconnected world, it’s imperative for internal and external stakeholders to have equal access to projects. Whether it’s technicians updating projects on-site through a mobile application or external stakeholders such as subcontractors or governments collaborating via guest access, inclusive access enhances efficiency. Centralized communication can drastically reduce the endless cycle of meetings and emails, streamlining project execution.

3. Inability to Forecast

Having insights into the workload is vital for improved forecasting. Anticipating future challenges and opportunities can significantly optimize resource allocation and reduce unnecessary expenses.

4. Poor Decision making due to Lack of Data

Cross-project dashboarding with real-time data is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity. In an age where conditions change rapidly, real-time data offers a competitive edge, allowing companies to adapt swiftly and make informed decisions.

5. Unclear Planning and Follow-Up Process

Top-notch planning and task follow-ups are essential cogs in the machinery of grid operations. A slip here can cascade into a series of delays and inefficiencies. Automation capabilities can usher in significant time savings and improve project profitability.

6. No Single Source of Truth

Imagine a platform where all communication, project statuses, changes, and logs are available. This single source of truth eradicates the possibility of misinformation, ensuring that everyone, from customers and government officials to shareholders and management teams, is on the same page.

Barriers to Overcome the main Grid Operations Challenges

While understanding these challenges is one thing, the question remains: what’s stopping public infrastructure companies from overcoming them?

  • Lack of Resources: Often, companies are stretched thin, lacking the necessary resources to invest in sophisticated management platforms.
  • Resistance to Change: A shift towards automation and new methodologies can be met with resistance from those accustomed to traditional ways of working.
  • Complex Stakeholder Relationships: Managing the many stakeholder relationships, each with its demands and expectations, can be overwhelming.
  • No software that meets end-to-end requirements: whether it are complex spreadsheets, or rigid software applications, many teams struggle to manage all aspects of their work in one, user-friendly platform.
  • Integration Challenges: Integrating new systems with legacy ones can be technologically challenging and time-consuming.


The world of grid operations in public infrastructure is fraught with challenges, but with them come opportunities. By understanding these challenges and addressing them head-on, companies can enhance their efficiency, profitability, and stakeholder satisfaction. 

Grid Operations teams need a unified way of working across all projects. It not only facilitates swift project execution, but also ensures ease of switching between projects. Consistency and collaboration form the backbone of efficient project execution. They determine the overall success of your work. Embracing a single source of truth within a software platform isn’t the entire solution, but it propels you significantly further along the path to success.
