The Importance of IoT Role Transforming the Energy Sector

Energy consumption is directly related to global warming and climate change. Since the Industrial Revolution, the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere has risen exponentially. The Internet of Things (IoT) helps companies gain better control over their energy consumption, allowing them to reduce pollution and waste while also increasing profits. Money-saving is the biggest advantage of using IoT in the energy industry. There are several points on how IoT can transform energy industries.

Resource Optimization

With abundant resources in Indonesia, companies have an advantage in terms of the scale of business, but it also comes with various consequences; extra cost of monitoring. For example, in remote sites, power outages often disrupt a company’s power system causing availability problems. In order to prevent these problems from happening, IoT Envion could improve availability systems and system failure mitigation with 24/7 and real-time monitoring.

Smarter, Better Grid

Producing a smarter and better grid means covering massive grounds and a massive number of connections. NB-IoT technology has been used in Indonesia as a digital meter for several industry sectors. This is the latest telecommunications technology specifically designed to make communication between machines more vast with a wider telecommunication network. This technology has the ability to simultaneously generate large connection capacity for IoT-based systems and applications. NB-IoT will make it much easier to monitor electricity usage and distribution in any location. Its low-data packet also makes for a more effective power use with battery life up to 10 years time.

Automation

With the advancement of technology and the development of IoT, life is simpler, easier, and automated. The Internet of Things has provided the energy sector with an automated environment through smart device control and improved device connectivity. This technology helps you to improve asset performance by utilizing data trends and reports and enable predictive maintenance. We could even respond faster to any critical needs with automated alert and action in an impressive approach.

Sustainability & Disaster Preparedness

A disaster is a natural or man-made hazard, resulting in significant damage, physical harm, and loss of life. In disaster management, having IoT could be life-saving. For example, the use of long-range technologies with using IoT, the energy company will always be ready if any disaster happens. One of the most significant technologies such as LPWANs is being applied for volcanic observation. In another case, flood observation data have also been connected to public safety information.

As a result, implementing IoT devices and sensors will not only benefit your business, but will also enable you to distribute your energy supply wider and operate for a longer period of time. Let's look at how Telkomsel IoT Envion may help you to monitor energy usage which will effectively reduce cost and provide efficient operation.
