The solar industry is making astronomic leaps with IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionised the way we interact with technology, and there is no exception in the solar energy industry. By integrating IoT technology into solar energy systems, we can unlock a host of new features, benefits, and opportunities. IoT is changing the solar energy landscape and how it can be used to create a more sustainable and efficient energy future.

Features of IoT in solar energy

InfiSIM tick
  Remote monitoring

IoT technology can be used to connect solar energy systems to the grid, allowing for the seamless integration of renewable energy into the grid and to manage fluctuating energy demands. This helps energy companies balance the load and improve the overall reliability of the power grid, keeping our smart cities running.

InfiSIM tick
  Predictive maintenance

By collecting and analysing data from solar energy systems, IoT technology can predict when maintenance is needed and schedule it accordingly. This can help to prevent unexpected failures and prolong the life of the system.

Opportunities for IoT in solar energy

Distributed energy generation

Distributed energy generation

IoT technology enables utility companies generating solar power to be connected and manage their solar farm remotely, allowing for the creation of distributed energy generation networks.

Energy storage

IoT-enabled energy storage systems can be used to store energy generated from solar energy systems for later use, increasing the overall efficiency of the energy system and helping companies to manage energy requirements more efficiently (depending on the needs of the utility grid).

Smart buildings & smart homes

Smart homes & buildings

IoT technology can be used to integrate solar energy systems into smart homes and buildings, allowing for the efficient use and management of energy.

If you’re planning on deploying solar panels to power IoT devices such as gates, security devices including cameras, or even remote-controlled lights, you could make considerable cost savings. This is because solar devices don’t need to be hard-wired, reducing installation costs, and you no longer need to pay to power your devices.

Moving away from fossil fuels & towards renewable sources

As the world looks towards more renewable energy sources as a move to replace fossil fuels with clean energy, solar power is becoming more and more popular. This is because solar technology is becoming a much more viable source of energy for larger business operations.

IoT applications have the potential to greatly impact the solar energy industry, by providing new features, benefits, and opportunities. By using IoT to advance solar technology, we can create more efficient, reliable, and sustainable solar energy systems, helping us to move closer to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future.
