There is a revolution occurring in the energy industry. It started with new production methods – with renewable energy. Their more intermittent nature created new problems, which are being solved with the tools of the information technology revolution. Now we are also seeing exciting new business models and new business opportunities. This is not just about saving energy – a big enough benefit on its own – but about using it more intelligently as we move towards a more sustainable and prosperous world.
We are at the early stages of a new industrial revolution. The information technology revolution is just beginning to change the industrial landscape as the ‘industrial internet’ enables equipment; things; even bits of material; to communicate and collaborate. This will do more than enable far greater use of resources – itself a fundamental environmental benefit – it will also create great new business opportunities for more sustainable prosperity through innovation.
Over half of humanity now live in cities, and cities are changing. Modern cities are becoming more akin to intelligent organisms, with technology enabling nerves and senses. As the information technology revolution moves from the desktop and the phone into the urban environment, innovation is enabling us to move towards a sustainably high quality of life, though the efficient, intelligent use of resources.
