Wind, Biomass, Solar, Hydro and Geothermal all share a common goal in their quest to supply the growing demand for energy - control the output to provide a consistent flow of predictable electricity. However, as more large-scale renewables are integrated into electricity grids, technical challenges still arise. And, to maintain annual investments into low-carbon power supplies, the costs of clean energy technologies must continue to decline. This is where renewable energy companies look to the Industrial Internet of Things ( IIoT ).
IIoT products are expected to have long life cycles, operate reliably under extreme or hash conditions and prevent unauthorized access by malicious individuals. They are used to increase energy output, keep output levels stable, cut operational and maintenance costs, and provide solid performance data. These sophisticated IIoT systems make possible new ways of managing demand instead of simply increasing supply. This requires large amounts of connectivity and monitoring.
