The people of i4Energy are focused on three key areas:
- Integrated monitoring and sensing, to capture and communicate essential real-time energy information,
- Deep data analytics and modeling, to process physical information and guide action, and
- Intelligent usage and advanced control, to act on rich information streams, making the entire energy system work better.
Innovations in these IT areas mean progress across the i4Energy agenda. Advances will continually enhance our ability to match consumer demand with energy availability. They will maximize the fraction of renewable energy that can be generated, integrated into the transmission system, and utilized. And they will give us the tools to instrument our buildings, homes, and processes to boost energy efficiency.
