Webinar: Digitalisation of the Energy System - The Key Role of Internet-Connected Devices
IEA 4E - EDNA
Connecting everyday, internet-connected devices can have profound implications for energy use. Connected devices can participate in new kinds of digital ecosystems: systems of connected devices can be managed intelligently to save energy, within a building or even within a city. Within an electricity grid, connected devices can be controlled to match the variable loads generated by renewables. However, good policy is required to derive the best outcomes, and to ensure that the "energy cost" of connectivity is minimised.
