The Challenge: Implement the IoT in Energy

Decentralized generation leads to a large-scale implementation of hardware in millions of households and businesses. The distribution, management and monitoring is a big challenge in itself. However, future benefit can be generated by software that makes metering smart and enables consumers to trade and capture values out of data.

Key questions to be addressed:

  • What’s available on the market today in terms of technology, functionality, cost and data security?
  • What are the key obstacles for a fully deployed IoT across energy?
  • What is important for the customer?
  • How can we solve these obstacles together with you and your startup?
