Since 2010, the UK has invested an impressive £52 billion ($66 billion) in renewable energy, dramatically shifting the country’s dependence on fossil fuels. On a global scale, wind turbines, tidal power and solar panels are fast becoming the energy generation methods of choice in most developed countries.But making this transition is not as simple as it seems. The technology required for creating a renewable-friendly network is available, but almost all the world’s existing energy infrastructure is designed specifically to distribute the highly predictable and controllable energy generated by fossil fuels.

Honeywell will provide three power providers in the United States with managed smart grid services that offer a simpler way to manage technical smart grid networks, and enable improved electricity service and reliability for their customers. The Honeywell subscription services offer an alternative for smaller utilities, which typically have fewer IT resources, that choose not to own and manage their own advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) software. Managing AMI software is a resource-intensive task that many smaller utilities often struggle to accommodate.
