Seize the opportunity of "smart energy", Intel enters the energy Internet of Things

At the "First Intel Energy Management Solution Summit" held recently, Intel released its latest "Smart Energy" strategy and signed a strategic cooperation agreement with China's "Smart Energy Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance" based on the IEEE1888 standard. .

It is worth mentioning that the above standards are the only IEEE international standards for energy conservation and emission reduction led by Chinese companies in the past five years, and also the landmark international standards in the Internet of Things.

At the APEC meeting held not long ago, countries reached consensus on energy conservation, emission reduction and sustainable development, while Chinese state leaders talked twice about the "energy revolution." The person in charge of the Intel Internet of Things said in an interview that China's energy system will be more innovative than other countries.

The Energy IoT is just one part of Intel's strategic layout in the IoT space. Intel, which missed the mobile Internet opportunity, does not want to miss the Internet of Things again.

Great market potential

In the eyes of Intel, “smart energy” is the optimization of existing energy systems through information and communication technology (ICT), covering energy development and utilization to production and consumption.

Seize the opportunity of "smart energy", Intel enters the energy Internet of Things

At the summit, Intel introduced a Quark processor-based platform solution that includes processor, middleware, software, and application support for specific energy industries, providing solution support to industry partners in specific energy industries, and industries using Intel solutions. Chain partners can build and deploy application services.

"Smart energy has a very big concept, from production to consumption. As the first step, we start from the end, that is, from the energy consumption group, we call energy management." Intel China Internet of Things Zhao Yu, senior industry manager of the department.

“In the past year, the government has begun to invest in the construction of energy information systems, which has met the needs of government decision-making to a certain extent. However, for enterprises, the energy management level of enterprises before is very low. Especially for our non-high-energy-consuming enterprises, energy costs account for our cost. Enterprises with very low expenditures are very low-production," said Miao Ren, an associate researcher at the Energy Research Institute of the National Development and Reform Commission.

Intel is aiming at the opportunities of enterprise energy management. At present, Intel's application partners in energy information system construction include Rock Jiahua, Schneider Electric, etc. Among them, Rock Jiahua provides energy online monitoring services, and Schneider Electric also launched intelligent building energy saving solutions.

“Why is it cut from this place? The first step in energy conservation is to help energy-efficient projects in all walks of life to solve energy-saving problems. The second step is to achieve energy supply balance within the region. No matter from which angle, the first step is to start from energy. Consumers cut in, this is the starting point of our Intel." Zhao Yu said.

At present, the energy management system that attracts industry attention is to deploy sensors to collect front-end energy consumption data, then transmit energy consumption data and equipment operation data to the cloud, implement data analysis and management through the cloud platform, and finally improve energy-saving effects or implement equipment operation. Detection and failure warning. In addition, the entire energy management system is not only reflected in the consumer side, but also can establish connections between enterprises to help allocate regional energy consumption. That is to achieve further energy Internet of Things or energy ICT.

Liu Dong, chairman of IEEE1888 and chairman of Tiandi Internet, revealed that according to the incomplete information he has, the government has invested nearly 500 billion yuan in energy conservation and emission reduction every year. Among the funds, the main part is now used for structural adjustment of the energy industry, and relevant experts predict that the use of smart energy means to achieve efficient use of energy will play a greater role over time.

According to statistics, by 2015, the IT investment in the energy industry is expected to reach 61.5 billion yuan, with a compound growth rate of more than 20%.

Intel's IoT layout

In fact, the Energy IoT is only part of Intel's move into the IoT program.

"Calculation is not only in the background of the network, the extension and expansion of computing deepens the interconnection of computing, people and things. There will be many new user experiences and innovations coming out," said Intel China Managing Director Huang Jie.

"The whole Internet of Things is still relatively scattered, but the integration of this industry is actually accelerating. There are many cross-border innovations, such as the information industry. Now, Industry 4.0 is actually industrial automation and Internet of Things. In combination, this is a typical cross-border. Modern agriculture and Internet finance are typical cross-borders, such as medical care, education, wear, fashion, etc. We have seen many new developments in these areas,” said the Yellow Festival.

The Yellow Festival said that in response to the rapidly growing connectivity and computing needs of the Internet of Things era, Intel's strategy is to establish an open platform.

Intel, which lags behind Qualcomm in the mobile Internet era, has invested a lot of enthusiasm in the upcoming Internet of Things era.

Last year, Intel participated in the Industrial Internet Alliance, founded by a number of technology giants, including IBM, ATMT, General Electric, GE, and Cisco. Intel also expects to advance the open IoT alliance based on Intel architecture. In addition, in September last year, Intel also established a separate IoT business unit under the system.

Chen Wei, general manager of Intel China Internet of Things, said that Intel has three transformations from traditional chips and stand-alone devices to today's intervention in the Internet of Things:

“We have been in the embedded industry for more than 30 years, when we put chips into embedded applications. The first transformation is the transformation from the past industrial PC embedded applications to solutions; the second is the business model. The transformation, from the embedded ecological chain to the ecological chain of the Internet of Things, this ecological chain has grown three or four times, which is definitely not a hardware company's own business; the third is the transformation of computing, we mentioned a concept software definition analysis."

The newly formed Intel IoT business unit focuses on four industries: retail, transportation, manufacturing, smart buildings and smart homes. Among them, Intel's energy IoT project is included in the manufacturing industry, including industry and energy. "The energy chain is quite long, and it is produced and used. We mainly use it from the perspective of use and monitoring, which is more suitable for China's national conditions." Zhao Yu said .

"Everyone thinks that the opportunity in 1998 is the PC Internet, and in 2008 it is the mobile Internet. If so, maybe 2018 is the Internet of Things. We have a few years, Intel is not only determined in this direction, but also invests a lot of resources." Zhao Yu said.

“For the development of our embedded business unit, our overall planning and strategy is like this. We start with the overall solution, retail, digital security, communications, transportation, etc. These places will stimulate many applications opportunities, For example, environmental protection, energy, industry, food safety, agriculture, water conservancy, etc. We are very much looking forward to seeing growth in the field of Internet of Things as a company like Lenovo and Huawei," said the Yellow Festival.
