COLUMBIA, Md., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) announced today that it has been selected by National Grid, an electricity and gas supplier in the UK and northeastern US, as its Managed Services Integrator to provide global learning solutions. Under the initial three-year agreement, GP Strategies will support National Grid’s transition to a new learning operating model in order to help meet the requirements of the UK Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) controls under their Revenue = Incentives + Innovation + Outputs (RIIO) model.
The RIIO requirement (valid 2013–2021) offers network companies incentives for securing investment and driving innovation to ensure the delivery of sustainable energy networks for current and future customers at the lowest cost. As a strategic partner, GP Strategies will help National Grid drive global consistency, efficiencies and cost-effective ways of working, enabling the learning function to deliver improved performance and achieve business outcomes.
Scott Greenberg, Chief Executive Officer of GP Strategies, stated, “GP Strategies continues to develop its unique platform to differentiate itself from its competitors when it is critical to provide global learning strategies to organizations on a worldwide basis. When fully implemented, we anticipate that National Grid will be one of our largest customers in the global electricity and gas transmission and distribution sector and will add to our already large customer base in the power generation and liquefied natural gas utilities markets.”
