Energy Cloud: The Curve of Digital Forwardness

The emergence of metropolis and industrial revolution has intensified the need for massive energy consumption. To meet the limitless energy demand from limited resources, the global energy practitioners have come up with a digitally integrated energy system to serve the utility and energy industry – Energy Cloud. As an extension of the fourth industrial revolution, the energy cloud serves as a one-point solution for the power and energy industry. The relevance of the application becomes more crucial to achieving energy sustainability as the vision to achieve global sustainability successfully transforms from Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to Sustainable Development Goals targeted for the Vision 2030. The digitization process, if efficiently utilized, can be translated into one of the most disrupting technologies to shape multiple goals of SDG that range from clean water & sanitation and affordable & clean energy to sustainable cities & communities to climate action. It is high time we merged the mutually complementing platforms to realize the unfathomable growth of energy industry and integrate it to the global goals.
