Re-shaping the energy business (P)

During the past decade, energy efficiency has become a ubiquitous buzz-phrase. Being able to control expenses, manage infrastructures and trim overconsumption became the target not only of public facility operators, but also of businesses and individuals. The reason was quite simple: we weren't paying attention to the fact that energy supplies are not unlimited.

For this reason, we changed our policies and procedures, introduced alternative energy supplies, focused on more efficient appliances, applied smart metering and load control technologies and even tried to change the most important factor, namely our behavior. The results could be deemed successful or not, depending on your point of view, but the most significant point is that today energy efficiency is considered a requirement and a commitment for all.

Today, our energy grids could be considered quite static, in the sense that they are fixed lines, with fixed points of consumption. Above and beyond this, the entire billing and back office complexity of utilities and DSOs is such that the points of consumption are closely linked and coupled to individual customers.
The rise of technology breakthroughs, such as the Internet of Things (interconnected devices and services) or flexible work conditions are reconfiguring the entire energy business model. We'll need to provide for smart sensors in areas that aren't adequately supplied with energy and, however strong batteries are becoming, computation needs are rising much faster than storage technologies can keep up with.

We'll need to address the electric car revolution and the significant economic issues associated with its support (energy points of sale, retransmitting energy back to the grid, forecasting energy needs, etc.). Based on the above, it is apparent that adapting to these new business and community requirements will take a serious redesign of our energy infrastructures and of the back-end systems that support them.

Offering a broad range of innovative solutions, Intracom Telecom has the knowhow, the right perspective and the proven ability to meet these evolving market needs in a flexible manner. Our company provides end-to-end solutions that include field rollout, telecom and IT offerings, expertise in smart grids and energy projects and, most importantly, the ability to adapt to the unique demands and challenges each project entails.

Just like the telecom revolution launched exciting services and products and forced providers to adopt new business models, the ongoing energy evolution will do the same for the energy industry. Intracom Telecom will certainly be part of this change, leading the way to a more efficient and sustainable future.
