IoT Solutions for
Energy and Utilities
Transforming energy and utilities through intelligent technology
The distributed energy revolution is happening now.
From wind turbines and solar farms, to energy storage systems such as batteries and electrical vehicles. Monitoring, managing and controlling these remote assets is made possible by the Hark Platform. Monitor the health and efficiency of your energy generating assets such as wind farms, solar farms and energy storage systems through real-time data insights and management.
The Hark Platform provides a suite of tools and features that enables businesses to control the operations and efficiency of systems as well as providing robust analytical, forecasting and prediction mechanisms which are crucial to intelligent operation. Any form of sensor data can be measured using the Hark Platform, energy meters are just one of many categories.
The advent of distributed generation, storage and electric vehicles.
Higher demands for electricity generation and distribution means that new ways of optimising and producing energy on-demand are required in order maintain grid stability. Using the Hark Platform to control assets like heavy machinery, batteries and vehicle-to-grid charging mechanisms eases the strain on power grids, produces greener electricity, and makes additional energy revenue streams accessible.
What’s more, our technology can be used to turn many existing assets into demand response assets capable of reducing the barrier to entry to the energy optimisation revolution.
Automatically identify and optimise.
Data-led insights improve the operation of water supply infrastructure, pumps and outhouses by monitoring your individual assets.The Hark Platform uses real-time data to identify areas of concern and automatically reporting on and assisting with minimal downtime requirements. Encouraging carbon-neutral production and reducing waste disposal boosts your business’ ‘eco-image’, all the while reducing your expenditure and maintenance costs
Smart technologies are making cities more productive and efficient.
Interconnected sensors and buildings can be used to orchestrate control at a city wide scale, as well as provide new ways of contextualised notifications to the public, in real-time.
The Hark Platform makes smart cities simple, by using data streams and insights to control factors in accordance to real-time conditions. Energy, pollution, congestion and more. Our technologies improve the standards of living and provide cities across the globe with a gateway to a carbon neutral future.
Case Study:Revolutionising Retail
Energy Performance Indicators are a metric for tracking energy efficiency. They help to normalise energy consumption by any measurable, influencing factor. They are a commonly used tool by energy professionals, and a necessary requirement for ISO 50001 certification.
How can you use the Hark emissions calculator to discover the value in IoT for your estate? Now energy managers, asset operators and facilities managers can use this tool to do just that!
One of the biggest economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic is the exceptionally high increase in unemployment, which due to a combination of business closures and cutbacks, is set to rise to 2.6 million by mid-2021. Sadly, the vulnerability of those with less available income can often result in crime spikes, and subsequently have a direct impact on theft levels within stores. There has been a 66.7% increase in shrinkage-related theft which correlates with the rise of unemployment in the UK. With this mind, retailers will have to adapt and protect against this spike in theft.
