Platform for smart monitoring of energy systems by means of IoT

How can we better manage the energy consumption of entire industrial parks and residential areas? This is one of the questions Energyville is considering in the context of the Smarthor project. In a preliminary study, Microsoft Azure cloud, Cortana Analytics and Azure Machine Learning were investigated as a possible basis for an IoT platform.
Together with Ordina data scientists and IoT specialists, an IoT platform was built and implemented (hosted in Azure). This platform brings together Energyville’s algorithms, and data sources from devices and sensors, with data from the energy market. The system can therefore control devices and sensors in order to optimise energy consumption on a large scale. A good example of how IoT can have a relevant impact. The system is smart, it can learn for itself from the data it receives and control other systems on the basis of that.
