Use cases for energy

Smart Grid


Monitor energy generation, distribution, and consumption, with analytics to help optimize energy flow, detect faults, and improve overall grid efficiency.

Intelligent gas


Remotely manage gas delivery systems and get real-time data at the extraction site about critical infrastructure and equipment, allowing for proactive maintenance, early fault detection, and minimized operational risks.

Intelligent water


Quickly pinpoint leaks, accurately track supply and water consumption, and keep close tabs on events—like backflows and no-flows—to help conservation efforts.


Renewable energy management


Monitor renewable energy systems such as solar panels and wind turbines, collecting data on energy production, weather conditions, and performance metrics to optimize energy generation, enable predictive maintence, and assist the efficient integration of renewable energy sources into the grid.

End-to-end solutions to support energy


Grid Wide

Automate and enhance distribution grids to improve electricity management, boost security, address compliance and deliver critical information in near real time. 


Remote Monitoring

Our environmental and equipment monitoring solutions can provide near real-time visibility into asset or equipment health, environmental conditions, diagnostics and performance for predictable operations.

Intelligent Lighting

Remotely operate lights, individually or by group, or program them to turn on, off or dim based on pre-set definitions to both decrease energy costs and address safety concerns.
