IIoT systems and technologies are among the main drivers of the digital transformation of the energy sector. As smart sensors and smart networks are increasingly part of energy deployments, distribution systems operators (DSO), transmission systems operators (TSO), energy aggregators and other stakeholders take advantage of their data and services in order to optimize operations and to offer novel services to consumers. At the same time, the advent of novel technologies for implementing smart contracts between systems and devices (such as blockchain technologies) provide unprecented opportunities for implementing novel business models that improve environmental performance, while increasing the revenue streams of energy providers. In this landscape, utility companies are faced with several challenges including:
- The need for high-performance collection and processing of data from smart devices in short time scales as a means of enabling real-time balancing of supply and demand, along with associated grid optimizations.
- The design and deployment of advanced BigData analytics mechanisms on energy data as a means of enabling data intensive products and services.
- The interoperability of energy data and services across numerous diverse deployments, smart networks and devices.
- The successful integration of novel energy production and management models, such as models based on electromobility and V2G (Vehicle to Grid) technologies.
- The inception and implementation of novel business models involving renewable energy sources and engagement of citizens as prosumers.
