Globally, the digital revolution has increased need for electricity with greater reliability and better quality than is typically delivered through conventional power distribution systems. As more manufacturing processes and service industries become dependent on digital services, the requirement for high security, quality, reliability, and availability of an electric power supply will only go up. India’s existing infrastructure has been designed for large conventional sources of energy that involves manual intervention and oversight. However, with the government’s thrust on renewable energy sources, there is a need to restructure the grid to have an underlying IT infrastructure to merge and manage the energy generated from renewable sources along with conventional energy sources. The need of the hour is an integrated grid with an IT backbone. Smart grids can reduce energy consumption, increase efficiency of the electricity networks, and manage electricity generation from renewable technologies.

IoT, and the promise it offers, are edge devices that communicate with the cloud and gather big data. It isn’t a concept, rather it is a state of connectedness and system intelligence. The culmination of multiple emerging and mature technologies, IoT provides actionable intelligence to both systems and people.We typically think of the device as the embodiment of IoT, because it is most visible. But the infrastructure, the system behind the device, is where the real value lies. Without the system, the edge device is pretty much useless. Without the entire system, you cannot effectively solve a problem or affect an outcome efficiently. Without every piece, the outcome can’t be achieved.
