The Internet of Things (IoT) involves the exchange of data between real-world devices and the internet.

In the energy industry, IoT covers all sensors and devices that are able to provide data on energy usage, demand and consumption. All of this information is then pooled, processed and analysed to improve services.

IoT is a cornerstone of smart city, smart building and smart grid concepts. It provides the tools to optimise the energy performance of facilities through effective energy management.
