Energy & Utilities

IoT in the energy & utility sectors is an advanced process that includes planning and energy & resource management of the consumption patterns in multiple domains. It allows the managers to take complete control of energy data from scratch and optimize the process significantly.

Energy & Utilities Use Cases

Black and Silver Solar Panels

Solar/wind monitoring

Monitor solar and wind energy generation to detect any failure or abnormal decrease in energy efficiency. This helps reduce cost and prevent a potential business disruption, i.e., lowers business risk.

black and gray metal pipe

Water monitoring

Monitor water levels, pressure, turbidity, Ph, salinity, ORP, flow, etc., to prevent overflows, track drinking water supply, and monitor the waste water network and treatment operations. This helps reduce cost and lowers business risk.

Storage (tanks) monitoring

Monitor oil and gas storage tanks to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness over manual checks. This helps reduce cost.

Electricity poles monitoring

Monitor major tilting as a result of strong wind, traffic accidents, earth movements, etc. to be able to conduct preventive maintenance. This helps reduce cost and lowers business risk.

Connected circuit breakers

Add connectivity to circuit breakers to gain new capabilities for metering, analyzing power usage at the edge, and selectively cutting electricity to power-hungry appliances to prevent blackouts. This helps increase revenue and reduce cost.

Connected meters

Monitor and optimize infrastructure in real time to detect leaks and breakdowns, automate billing, and remotely activate and deactivate services. This helps reduce cost, increase revenue, lower business risk, and improve customer experience.

Field operations

Equip service technicians with connected hardware, e.g. tablets, to improve worker efficiency. This also helps improve employee experience.

Retail Waste & Recycling

Retail waste and recycling solutions use IoT-enabled sensors to monitor receptacles' locations and fill-levels to optimize collection schedules and routes. Smart waste collection solutions work by employing sensors to measure receptacles' fill-level, temperature, tilt and weight. When a bin becomes full, the company receives an alert and it is added to an upcoming route - meaning that, instead of servicing every customer and emptying dozens if not hundreds of half-empty bins, companies only drive to sites where bins are full.

Utilities Equipment Management

Utilities equipment management uses IoT-enabled sensors to remotely monitor the performance of utilities equipment, allowing companies to better optimize maintenance to minimize downtime and prevent unexpected outages. Utilities equipment management solutions can track and record equipment's age, usage, and maintenance history. By providing managers a top-down view of how equipment is performing, they can schedule maintenance before equipment starts to fail and predict the long-term needs of equipment and systems.
