THE ENERGY SECTOR AND THE ENTERPRISES WORKING ON IT ARE AFFECTED BY THE NEW DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION PARADIGMS TO WHICH ALL ACTIVITIES OF THE INTERLOGICA BUSINESS GROUP ARE ORIENTED TO.

The digital evolution in the field is strongly supported by a mix of opportunities that have emerged within the utility landscape:
– the power grid systems require replacement operations in order to fulfill the regulatory compliance requested by the EU;
– the productive potential of renewable energies is continuously growing;
– providing Smart Metering systems to control the consumption of electricity, gas and water is, nowadays, within everyone’s reach.

Thanks to the development of these new types of tools, the demand to obtain more control over energy consumption from the consumers has increased.
This scenery reveals the need for technological intervention able to sustain the massive production of data as well as their management since traditional systems are insufficient.

For this reason, the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, to acquire information on consumption, by sensors and other devices, is paramount, together with the methodology needed to collect heterogeneous data, structured and unstructured, the so-called Big data.

However, there’s more. The value brought by our firm exceeds the simple adoption of this type of data or technology, because the focus is on their strategic relationship in connection with the company decisions.

Knowing the importance of Big Data and of their management is critical in order to always have an advantage over competitors; but to make a real difference in the market, you need to know how to combine the use of Big Data with Business Intelligence (BI) activities. That’s how we do it.

But what is Big Data? Why are they so relevant now? What is the relationship between Big Data and BI?

Mapping the internet, measuring the response rate of millions of queries per second, and accessing or uploading an infinite number of informations online are some of the activities that have allowed an understanding of the continuity at which enormous quantities of data are produced, which are impossible to manage, analyze and elaborate rapidly with traditional means.

The access to Big Data enables the continuous monitoring, predictive analyses, and profile elaborations of the ‘typical client’, so much so that we were capable of calculating beforehand the energetic costs of future end-users, as well as proposing new marketing activities to improve customer loyalty.

One of the technologies at the service of Big Data and of the energy sector is the Internet of Things (IoT) that, together with the network of physical objects connected to the Internet is able to transmit billions of informations to a control panel, in real-time.

Its characteristics have been successfully exploited in one of the many Interlogica projects, for a renowned Credit Institution. The roots of its success can be found in the optimization of energy consumptions, consequent to the reorganization of the workspace.

What is defined as “energy efficiency” is the ability to produce predictive analyses on consumption behaviors, when the reworking of Big Data leads to the creation of target profiles with standard habits as well as preventive actions leading to energy waste reduction.

Interlogica is part of the 8%* of business companies that have understood the value behind the close connection between Big Data and IoT and that has offered solutions to corporate customers in order to create strategies based on significant and impartial data and highlight those details that would be invisible to “the naked eye”, like: consumers habits and assets fine-tuning, processes and value chains.

The transformation of the electricity grid into an allocated network is here, it’s part of our present and sees the Blockchain technology as a milestone in the digitalization of the entire energy sector.

Talking about Blockchain means referring to a shared and public register, formed by a chain of blocks, called “nodes” that automatically updates the operation report on every node.

In the electricity grid, as well as in production implants, storage systems, microgrids that interact with each other, domestic photovoltaic installations, and the recharge systems of electric cars will be the nodes of the new utility network.

Thanks to our know-how we can revolutionize the entire energy sector, connecting Blockchain with Smart Contracts, IoT and Big Data.

Our aim, besides making the entire energy industry safe and reliable, is to integrate IoT with Blockchain in order to create a peer-to-peer market made of Smart Grids, “Smart Networks” provided with sensors that allow, through the collection and analysis of a large amount of data, the Big Data, for an enhancement in energy distribution.

Smart Contract solutions, based on Blockchain technology, as well as Micro-payments allow, instead, micro-recharge solutions for electric cars. Thanks to our decadal experience in the Automotive field, we have the capability to create platforms that make the micro-payment platforms more efficient and modern.

Technology development, pertaining to the energy sector production chain, is producing IT security requirements that are becoming more and more important. The continuous improvement of network interconnection and digitalization, thanks to Smart Grids, Big Data, and IoT, has lead to an increase in system vulnerability and therefore, of cyberattacks, which represent a great threat for companies as well as for consumers.

The expertise of our cybersecurity professionals supports you in securing your entire infrastructure.

We dedicate a lot of our work to the research of vulnerabilities that can be found in every type of system so that it can be made safe before cyber criminals exploit it for cyber-attacks or data theft.
