The energy system is complex with interconnections between infrastructure, processes and applications. New applications, enabled by the Industrial Internet, are being built to connect fielded assets with data analytics and reporting in an effective system, ultimately creating jobs and meeting the growing global demand for energy.
The Industrial Internet Consortium is bringing together global energy leaders to discuss requirements, gaps and opportunities for leveraging the data that is building up within and around our energy systems, and to use that data to increase production and decrease costs.
Today's Industrial Internet Consortium members are involved in almost every segment of the energy infrastructure:
Production - renewables, natural gas, Hydraulic fracturing, oil
Distribution - pipelines, power grid
Data infrastructure - networking, security, data storage, sensors
Analytics - diagnostics, prognostics, coalbed methane
We have case studies to share, lessons learned and opportunities to work together.
