Smart Energy Platform

Smart Energy Platform Gateway Solutions - Tech Mahindra


We cannot imagine our lives without various kinds of machines around us. Many of these machines perform duties well beyond their traditional functions. Enter the world of connected machines, or Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, in this world machines communicate with other machines via small devices or sensors that gather and transmit vital data in real time. New themes in product development like connectivity and digitization are also gaining traction. According to GSMA, the proliferation of connected devices will create a USD 4.5 trillion market for global business by 2020.

Such solutions have the potential to transform businesses. They will challenge companies to be innovative, the same way mobile internet did. Advancements in sensor, communication and computing technologies are enabling new products to be ‘smart’ and ‘connected’. Innovations such as real-time response, analytics based decision support and customer-centric service models are becoming the new norm across business environments as well as personal life styles. Overseeing the operation of remotely installed equipment, optimizing power consumption by a device or providing healthcare to patients are some indicative examples.

One key area is energy production and consumption. Even small improvements in the efficiency of the production, utilization and auditing of energy can generate significant energy surplus and value. So, an intelligent system that can integrate smart grids, energy management and variable pricing that benefits both utilities and consumers can be invaluable.

Tech Mahindra’s Smart Energy Platform solution features a gateway to integrate devices, a meter interface to assimilate real-time data from energy meters, a home area network (HAN) to connect all home appliances securely to the platform and in-house display (IHD) units that enable consumers to manage energy consumption from their homes.
