Smart Grids are a Powerful Idea Smart utility grids can stabilize the power grid during times of crisis and enable better integration of clean energy solutions. Smart meters, connected grid routers, and integrated management systems can help combat prolonged power outages.
AI and Drones Improve Power Line Inspections Power line inspections are necessary but dangerous and expensive. Using drones, machine learning, and humans to help train the AI, image-based inspection solutions are safer and more effective than sending techs in the field.
IoT Makes a Power Play for the Energy Grid Power grids are increasingly taxed by the addition of more devices, higher demand for power, and age-old monitoring systems. Active grid management solutions stabilize the grid, providing much needed visibility and analytics to balance energy production and consumption.
Low Power WAN Yields High Energy Monitoring Solution Data aggregation and low-power networks enable energy companies to roll out Internet of Things-enabled devices that bring visibility into their operations. With a focus on optimization and predictive maintenance, these technologies and the emerging LoRaWAN standard can protect their investments.
The Digital Hotel Uses IoT to Create the Ultimate Guest Experience The refurbished Sinclair Hotel gives new meaning to embedded IoT. Technology is built into every aspect of the hotel from check-in to room amenities to hotel dining. IoT and Power Over Ethernet (PoE) are making the Sinclair more efficient, drastically reducing power costs. Now, the automation has even more value in virus defense, as its technology profile allows the hotel to eliminate dozens of touchpoints when it reopens later this year.
Companies Step Up to Meet Rising Ventilator Demand, Energy Needs for Hospitals With coronavirus infections still increasing, the supply of ventilators for patients is falling short. Companies including Co-Vents and Bloom Energy are working non-stop to meet demand and also helping field hospitals keep the life-saving machinery running with clean microgrid power.
Modernizing the Electrical Grid Can today’s utilities respond to increased demand for renewable energy, the addition of IoT devices to the network, and a fast-growing population? Indra offers a new look at traditional grid operations that reflects the arrival of IoT, automation, and predictive analytics.
