In this respect, our power consultants will continue to build upon Météorage/SIRF services in order to provide innovative solutions to our utility clients worldwide”, he specified. “We have historically had a very good working relationship with the CESI Group”, echoed Dominique Lapeyre de Chavardès, President of Météorage. “We will continue to work in this direction with CESI’s Consulting division”, explained Lapeyre de Chavardès.

Furthermore, the CEO of CESI stated that, thanks to the agreement, our Group can “focus even more on our core business, as the energy sector is undergoing a deep transformation. Through the combination of our KEMA laboratories worldwide, and the expertise of our talented professionals, we are uniquely positioned to provide our global customers with innovative services related to the energy transition. For instance, in these days we are launching our Remote L@b Experience, a new way of testing power grids components in our labs from remote. Wearing interactive glasses that provide an Augmented reality experience mixed with collaborative IT solutions, our experts interact, in real time, with customers who live the same experience as being in our labs – even if sat in their offices, miles away, or in the comfort of their homes”, concluded Matteo Codazzi.
