Proving Sustainability Measures with the Help of IoT

No matter how smooth your business processes are, resources are finite. With environmental issues rising, customers are getting more conscious about their consumption and changing their lifestyles. More importantly, they’re beginning to choose businesses that align with their sustainable values.

Bringing greater connectivity to the environments we live and work in will save resources and cut down unnecessary costs. Is your business making sustainable decisions? Can you help your customers live a more sustainable lifestyle? Here are some ways IoT has supported the environment.

Smart Metering

To connect different powerhouses to the company’s server, PLN’s Smart Metering uses Leased Line Connection and APN Corporate provided by Telkomsel IoT Control Center. By using Leased Line, PLN keeps its network highly secure and can now get an accurate insight of the status and usage of each powerhouse. Understanding when and where energy is needed brings efficiency, allowing corporates and providers to preserve energy when demand is low and make sure they deliver when it’s high. If we get into the bigger picture of it, IoT is a useful instrumental in enabling the adoption of renewable resources.

Smart Lighting

Santini, one of smart lighting providers in Surabaya, provides a network of street lights that are connected to the Main Control Terminal. This allows the lights to turn on an off according to the traffic or scheduled time, self-diagnose problems, and other features. By using reliable connection, Santini is now able to cut down the cost of set up, get a lower monthly fee, and easily manage every SIM cards’ access to the APN. Lighting is a top use case of IoT for sustainability, Adding connectivity and intelligence to lighting systems is an integral component of optimizing electricity use to conserve energy.

Water Monitoring

A booming global population becomes a challenge to organizations, especially in providing enough clean water. Even though water is fundamental to functioning societies, water resources are under pressure. By implementing water-related IoT solutions like grid-based water meter system, companies can now monitor pipelines and detect faults more immediately. This reduces water leakage, safeguarding the resource and making sure it reaches the intended destination.

Air Quality Monitoring

Using sensors, companies, as well as municipalities, can gather extensive information about indoor and outdoor air, including the temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and carbon dioxide. These sensors detect the presence and saturation of volatile organic compounds and particulate matter in real-time. The gathered information can help cities, organizations and individuals monitor, analyze and determine the locations and causes of pollution, enabling them to take action and fix air quality issues.

Connected Transportation

The effects of IoT connectivity has affected the transportation industry. The collection of real-time time data has delivered streamlined services, improved customer experience, and greater personalization. Connectivity has also enabled automation, which will ease congestion and help to lower pollution levels. From a maintenance perspective, IoT sensors will be able to track the status of vehicles and other transportation options, contributing to a seamless travel infrastructure.

From a profit perspective, IoT has obvious benefits. However, more importantly, companies can maximize the value of resources by preserving energy, monitoring demand levels, and flagging up potential environmental issues. There are many other ways that IoT can have more positive impacts on the future of the planet. It is up to us to use this technology not only for personal gain but also to contribute to the global community at large.
