Building a resilient smart grid

Emerging technologies—including the Internet of Things (IoT) and hybrid cloud infrastructures, smart grid networks, and advanced data analytics—can help energy providers support energy resource management and distribution. An extended ecosystem that connects smart meters and appliances, grid exchanges, and other components can also dramatically improve energy efficiency. Together, Intel and Red Hat have established reference architectures and infrastructures to improve collection, distribution and storage of data. As a result, energy providers can embrace digital transformation to resolve energy challenges and improve electric utilities services.
