Smart M2M Solutions can be applied through a whole host of industries. Our team at Techbase, have put this series of articles together to highlight some of the industries where Smart M2M solutions can have a direct positive impact.
Energy & Utilities
The energy and utilities sector dominates globally. The energy industry is transforming rapidly due to the inclusion of innovative technologies, varied regulations, changing price models and decentralized power generation.
Smart M2M solutions come in to play to help users and energy companies better manage and track energy consumption through all areas in the “energy cycle”.
A smart grid is an “intelligent” electricity distribution network that uses smart M2M solutions to enable the automated interaction of intelligent devices to react to critical events or motorize all electricity flowing in the system, helping to improve efficiency and reliability in energy distribution and optimize the allocation of resources and the usage of assets.
Energy-efficiency is becoming a factor in business success, as is planned energy management in the public and private sectors, allowing for reduced energy consumption. Smart M2M solutions can help improve energy efficiency by remotely monitoring and controlling the consumption of powered devices and tracking usage for billing and reporting.
Automated meter readers (AMR) are an innovative and advanced utility meter that records a business or consumers energy, water or gas usage in real time. Smart M2M solutions enables customer relationship management, demand-side management and value added services, helping to provide a more reliable and sustainable supply.
Renewable Energies: Solar & Wind
Managing solar and wind farms that are sited offshore or on remote locations is a challenge. Smart M2M solutions provide a simple, cost effective solution for retrieving assessment and monitoring data to maximize energy production and reduce the need of other sources by enabling real-time response to output changes caused by changing weather, failure or maintenance issues.
Oil, Gas & Petroleum
In oil, gas and pretoleum industry, production and distribution systems can span hundreds of kilometers and suffer inclement weather. Smart M2M solutions allow to centralizes monitoring and access, helping controllers to communicate with instrumentation at wellheads, pipelines and other remote sites.
