Collaborating with Vodafone Business to Bring IoT and Blockchain Tech to Renewable and Distributed Energy Assets
We teamed up with Vodafone Business, a global technology communications company and a leader in IoT with over 100 million connections worldwide, to help improve the integration of renewable and distributed energy assets within power grids using secure IoT connectivity and blockchain technology. The partnership will combine SIM-centric blockchain technology (SCB) with IoT connectivity from Vodafone Business to create secure IDs for energy assets. This means that renewable and distributed assets like wind turbines, batteries, heat pumps, and solar panels can be integrated with energy grids safely and efficiently.
“As the number of decentralised, new-generation, low-carbon devices grows, so does the need for them to be securely connected regardless of their location. This connection needs to be simple and secure, ensuring assets are easily able to be connected to, and managed by, energy and communication networks around the globe. At Vodafone Business IoT, we believe that technology and connectivity can be used to help protect the planet and improve people’s lives. We are proud to work together with Energy Web to make this a reality.”READ MORE
