The energy and utility industries have long relied on technology for operational efficiency. As the energy sector transitions to wind, solar and other renewable energy sources, forward-thinking utilities are leveraging new technologies to facilitate the process.
Emerging technologies are reshaping the sector with many businesses implementing AI and ML into their systems to assist with forecasting the impact of weather systems on the grid and deliver significant outcomes in the water sector. Additionally, with increased use of smart home devices and distributed energy resources the volume of energy data available has increased and resulted in enormous quantities of information that utilities must now be equipped to store and analyse to gather insights.
Utilities are turning to new technologies to expand capability for analysis, automation, accurate in-real-time prediction and risk minimisation, including:
- Internet of Things (IoT),
- Data analytics and,
- Cloud computing
Flexibility is critical in making the shift to an energy system powered by renewables- data transparency and the availability of real-time energy data being key.
