Top 10 Smart Energy Solution Companies - 2020

Energy management is becoming increasingly important. Energy costs have become a primary factor in domestic budgeting today, wherefore home power usage monitoring is essential to most modern households. Many businesses face various challenges in their day-to-day energy consumption monitoring due to their massive scale and diverse infrastructure, low degree of flexibility, and a general lack of readings or actionable insights concerning their energy consumption.

However, smart energy systems are an ideal option for companies looking to optimize their energy usage to minimize operational costs, without compromising their eco-sustainability goals. Integrating an energy management system can also help companies achieve emission targets and tackle rising energy prices.

Smart energy solutions empower power generation, transmission, and distribution processes. The advent of IoT technology in the energy sector has enabled the development of more efficient and reliable systems that reduce losses in the energy flow from power plants to end consumers. This allows utilities to increase their electricity network’s reach more remote areas, and to prepare them to meet the needs of the continually rising global population.

In this special issue of Energy CIO Insights, we have listed the leading organizations in the industry that are providing eminent smart energy solutions to the clients along with their unique services.
