Capgemini and Intel will discuss how they envision the internet of things (IoT) transforming the grid through microgrid integration. Where can we expect microgrids, who will build, own and operate them? What are the implications to the traditional grid and how it is managed?
The microgid will be one of the building blocks of the future decentralised grid. It will ensure that opportunities for local generation are maximised. Additionally interconnected microgrids will play a role in balancing and stabilising the grid.
None of this will be possible without a highly reactive, real time data layer which controls and reacts to every sensory input on this ecosystem. The IoT is a key component in this framework and provides the glue for microgrid integration.
Our speakers from Capgemini and Intel will share how they see IoT transforming the grid in conjunction with the proliferation of microgrids.
