Join the conversation in 2018 at the industry-leading event on the future of the Internet of Energy

The energy sector is being transformed rapidly by technology and IoT, data analysis and Artificial Intelligence are the drivers of that change. The Internet of Energy 2018 is the industry's meeting place to uncover the massive impact these technologies are already having.

Ambitious decarbonisation targets, coupled with dwindling profit margins and antiquated legacy systems, are increasing pressure on traditional utilities to find new and profitable business models. The democratisation of energy, coupled with consumers demanding new services from providers, means the risk of disintermediation for traditional suppliers is real. Change must happen fast.

Now in its second year, the annual Internet of Energy is Europe’s leading event exploring the business case for Internet of Things in the electric utilities sector. Internet of Energy will equip you with the skillset to capture future market share by leveraging IoT to optimise the integration of renewable energy, and establish flexible and profitable business models.

My research shows...

The electric utility industry is increasingly aware of the potential of IoT to offer competitive advantage in grid efficiency, integration of distributed assets and new profitable retail business models.

However, in a risk-averse and cost-sensitive environment, adoption of IoT has not moved past the initial stages. When speaking with those in the industry, it’s clear that greater education is required around the business case for IoT investment in terms of tangible ROI as well as insight on the technical implementation of IoT solutions.

Building on the success of the 2017 event, my aim for Internet of Energy 2018 is to source new case studies to offer new insight and take-aways around building the business case and infrastructure to support IoT adoption. The discussion will further the industry’s readiness for change by uniting multiple stakeholders in the value chain committed to using IoT to accelerate the shift to renewables and a new services based energy model.
