  • The Internet of Things Is Changing the Energy Sector Added Value Chain

    Market forces require the transformation of the energy and utilities industry

    value chain

    Aging assets but increased

    expectations for reliability

    and workforce productivity

    Consumer role in energy

    management / conservation

    is increasingly important

    Changing demand

    dynamics vs. pressure

    for reliability

    Changes driven by growth

    in renewable energy

    generation and distributed

    resources

    Increasing attention to

    climate change and

    environmental concerns

  • The Internet of Things Is Changing the Energy Sector and its Added Value Chain

    Intelligent Things enable new use cases while the utility sector develops new energy-related services

    Applying business analytics to data collected from smart meters and other devices in real time to gain insights for better business decisions and automation is becoming paramount.

  • The Internet of Things M2M / IoT Distributed Systems Fundamental Aspects

    It is all about encapsulating the complexity of M2M distributed systems

    to:

    Reduce development time and risk

    Ensure optimum investment protection

    Avoid dependencies between the Things in the field and the

    applications

    Leverage world-class, proven architectures, protocols and technology

    Reduce dramatically the TCO of distributed device infrastructures

    Rapidly implement innovative, new business models and processes

    without creating dependencies

    And:

    Preserve and extend the customers value proposition

  • IoT Solutions by Eurotech at the Edge Flexibility and a Focus on TCO

    There is no one-size fits-all solution

    Wide range of hardware & software requirements depending on

    specific application: performance, I/O and features

    Different phases and kinds of IoT implementation: green field & brown

    field applications

    Any level of complexity: from telemetry like applications to powerful

    analytics and BI solutions anywhere in the field

    This demands solutions that factor in and provide solutions:
