Determine the future strategies for IoT in Power

In 2021, the power sector faced significant challenges across the entire value chain. These included spiking energy costs, transitioning to renewables, and safeguarding assets against extreme weather conditions.   The Internet of Things (IoT), billed as a key part of the next industrial revolution, can significantly transform the power sector by optimizing operations, managing asset performance, and engaging customers to lower energy costs.    GlobalData’s IoT in Power Thematic Research report provides you with an in-depth lens into the impact of IoT on the industry. We highlight both the challenges and opportunities associated with the innovative technology now, and in the future. Our report also covers: 
  • Major players and companies 
  • Market size and growth forecasts 
  • Case studies  
  • Sector scorecard 
According to GlobalData figures, global IoT revenue in the energy sector will reach $59 billion by 2025, up from $34 billion in 2019. Ensure your company is proactive in adapting strategies and processes to help you remain competitive.  Download the full report to get ahead of the competition.

In the latest issue of Future Power Technology we take a look at the latest innovations in turbines that will power the next generation of natural gas-fuelled plants, and profile new power plant projects using the latest technology.

For over two decades now, natural gas has been the fuel of choice for power plants. In recent years manufacturers have focused on making the combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) more efficient. We look at some of the best models on the market and see how they are improving efficiency for manufacturers.

Alstom has consolidated its position in the burgeoning tidal power market with its acquisition of tidal turbine manufacturer Tidal Generation Limited from Rolls-Royce. We find out more about Alstom’s plans for the company and ask if technologies used to harness tidal energy are ready to step up to the forefront of renewable generation.

We also take a look behind the rapid growth of the market for wind power technology, with a particular focus on innovations in gearbox and direct drive systems for wind turbines, and profile new wind power projects under construction.

Next Issue

IBM and its partners established the Smarter Energy Research Institute in 2012 to identify future priorities and challenges facing the industry. We catch up with the institute to discover the insights it has gathered on the future of smart energy.

We also find out how intelligent demand response systems could help optimise energy distribution and improve reserve margins, and take a look at the industry’s quest to build the ‘self-healing’ power grid – a system that can keep itself stable during normal conditions and self-recover in the event of a disturbance.

Moreover, we explore the progress of the smart metering roll-out in the UK and review new projections for its costs and long-term benefits, review different smart metering systems being developed for households and commercial users, and take a look at smart grid demonstration projects around the world to find out how far new technologies have progressed.
