In 2021, the power sector has faced significant challenges across the entire value chain. These include 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 or Industry 4.0, can significantly transform the power sector by optimizing operations, managing asset performance, and engaging customers to lower energy costs.

The power sector is already reaping benefits from early consumer-oriented IoT applications: smart meters and smart thermostats. Incorporating IoT technology is also made easier by the declining costs of IoT hardware, notably sensors. According to the publisher figures, global IoT revenue in the energy sector will reach $59 billion by 2025, up from $34 billion in 2019.
