Following is a guest post from David A Murray, General Manager, Communications Sector, A/NZ
I’m very pleased to share the IBM Australia Smarter Planet: Energy video, which is a light-hearted introduction to the concept of a smarter planet, and what it means for Australia’s energy systems. This short episode provides a unique view of what is possible when a system is instrumented, interconnected and intelligent.
The video cleverly describes the transformation taking place within the energy network that will lead to a smart grid that will enable distributed generation, reduce carbon emissions and provide reliable and secure energy for today and the future. As described in the video, the transformation will enable us as consumers of energy to have greater knowledge and therefore choice in our energy usage. The Energy industry is embarking an a transformation that will change the way we use energy in a way that will benefit our planet and future generations.
