Why Big Data and connectivity are changing the way energy is generated, distributed and consumed.


Energy is everything. It underpins all aspects of modern life yet the basic technologies of generation and distribution haven’t changed in decades. The proliferation of low cost, high reliability sensor technology, along with easy connectivity with the Industrial Internet of Things has made it possible for everything from downhole tooling and oil rig to massive hydroelectric projects to report large amounts of information about real-time performance.

Properly managing this data will be the key to increasing generation and distribution efficiency for the energy sector, including fast developing green technologies such as solar photovoltaic and wind generation. John Nixon brings three decades of industry experience to the conversation and delivers interesting insights into the key technologies that will power the future.
