The Cloud in the
Renewable energy sector

Cloud services are helping drive innovation in the fast-growing renewable energy sector due to the flexibility it provides.  Efficiency is the root of all success in the renewables sector.  The ability to improve processes to reduce waste and adapt supply to meet demand maximises the use of energy and keeps costs low.

Using flexible compute resources in Amazon AWS, energy companies can analyse usage data faster and use the insight they gain to drive improvements and reduce costs.

Integration Helps Renewable Energy Companies

The modern electricity grid is smart.  From producer to consumer, all elements of the transmission of power is mapped and measured.  This creates vast amounts of data that can be used to improve performance in all areas of the process.

Smart Meters in consumers’ properties can track the amount of electricity that is being used at any time, and allow the producers to build profiles of customers that enable them to predict future demand.

An ability to predict demand helps to improve efficiency in both production and storage of electricity.  Providers can scale up resources such as wind farms to meet the needs of consumers, and schedule maintenance at times when consumption is lower.
With millions of customers connected to the grid, and power stations spread across a wide area, it is important to ensure that demand is balanced across the whole grid.

The datasets created by the smart grid are huge. These must be processed in real-time to manage the capacity in line with demand which creates a requirement for flexible compute resource.  IG CloudOps provides flexible resource management to renewable energy companies that allows them to scale up their networks at times when they need capacity, and reduce resource outside peak times to keep costs lower and improve efficiency.
