Today’s Sustainable Goals: Making IoT an Essential Part of Your Business Operational and Energy Efficiency Management Plan
By: Arya P Unni, Operational & Energy Management IOT Developer, Renteknik Group
The Internet of Things (IoT) is on the path to helping slow the destructive course of Global Warming and Climate Change, and a positive solution for businesses in all industries. It is becoming more and more of a standardized policy to mandate and implement strategic efforts to ensure that all buildings operate at net zero carbon with IoT at the core of the solution. The IoT is a powerful network of embedded sensors, technologies and software platforms, allowing for the interchange and collection of data and machine learning providing real-time system and building analysis, and evaluation.
The IoT sensors available today support all of the main pillars of operational and energy management; operational efficiency, reduced waste, increased productivity, indoor air quality improvements and energy reduction and alternative energy onsite opportunities.
IoT's Role in Operational Efficiency Management and Sustainability
Real-time sensors are becoming a staple of importance for businesses in the effort to expand operations, energy, indoor air quality and carbon/emissions reporting.
Secure, easy to install IoT devices offer a multitude of monitoring options including electricity, gas, heat/cooling, water and air quality and carbon emissions that can easily provide businesses with constant and trustworthy real-time reporting. IoT and parallel Professional Support help focus on attaining and maintain equipment and building systems and operations at optimum levels with alerting capabilities to evaluate effectiveness of any changes or adjustments performed on Systems. Ongoing evaluation of these metrics help to enforce internal sustainability and efficiency business goals and standards even in the absence of a true global climate change agreement.
IoT Device Management Platforms and the Rise of DevOps and Their Contribution to
Better Efficiency and Better Devices.
The need for Development and Operations (DevOps) is swiftly on the rise. ‘DevOps’ teams are responsible for ensuring that the infrastructure is being supported properly. With the help of IoT Device Management platforms, which have quickly become the central hub of today’s IoT network, DevOps teams are positioned to better manage, scale and operate their wheelhouse of devices quickly, easily and remotely while simultaneously reducing long-term operational costs and inefficiencies.
Continuing to take Action
In today’s data driven world and as we look on the horizon to future Sustainability goals, IoT will continue to be at the forefront for many businesses to provide actionable real-time data. It will cut waste by improving and optimizing energy, processes, operations and systems. It will continue to adapt and evolve as researchers continue to unveil new findings and data on the steps we need to take to protect the environment, ourselves and our businesses against the challenges that come with Global Warming, Climate Change and Global Economic Factors.
