Global Event Series – The Industrial Internet Consortium Presents the IoT Energy & Efficiency Forum on May 25, 2018, in Finland
The Industrial Internet Consortium ® (IIC™), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), announced that it is presenting an IoT Energy & Efficiency Forum to highlight IIC members’ activities in the energy sector as well as the efficiencies brought about by IIoT. The event will take place at the Nokia Campus and Executive Experience Center (EEC) in Espoo, Finland, along with local partner, Business Finland. IIC member DIMECC is the event’s Gold Sponsor.
The forum is focused on four areas of IIoT and energy: (1) energy and utilities; (2) energy efficiency; (3) smart mobility; and (4) smart cities. Keynote topics include, “Role of Digitalization in the Energy and Industrial Revolutions,” and “How to Achieve a Truly Digital Plant / Refinery.”
“New digital technologies like blockchain, AI and new business models of platform economy will shake the foundations of the energy industry, as well as any other industry. Consumers will only pay for what they use and can sell what’s left over to other consumers. The role of a traditional energy company will turn into something totally different. Business Finland provides innovation funding, networks and export services for radical ideas and turning them into commercial global products and services. We attract international players and private investments and accelerate new digital ecosystem building – in Finland. This country is the best place to co-develop and innovate for the digital era,” says Business Finland’s Executive Director of Digital Transformation of Finnish industries Pekka Sivonen.
“IIoT is one of the main technology drivers behind new applications in the energy industry,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, IIC. “Energy efficiency is an asset all countries must develop to ensure safe, trustworthy, reliable and sustainable energy systems. Disruptive technologies are changing business models. IoT technology embedded within city infrastructure continues to change the way energy, water, lighting, heating, ventilation, maintenance and security are supplied.”
“We are delighted to host the IIC and its members at the Nokia Executive Experience Center in Espoo. We believe that as an industry we can accelerate the IoT across geographies and technologies. Through dialogue, sharing ideas and innovation we can create more sustainable, productive, and energy efficient solutions for our connected world,” said Bhaskar Gorti, president of Nokia Software.
The forum will offer presentations, case studies and technology demonstrations designed to help accelerate the adoption of the industrial internet and includes two panels: “Smart Cities, Energy Efficient Solutions,” and “Security, Data Analytics & Connectivity in the Energy Sector.”
