The ‘Clean Dozen’ solution areas that will help enterprises reduce their carbon footprint

Enterprises are increasingly focusing attention on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governmental) goals as a mechanism for improving their perception amongst investors, employees and other stakeholders. A key part relates to sustainability and the reduction of the organisation’s environmental impact. The application of new technologies, particularly the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, can have a significant impact on reducing an organisation’s carbon footprint, both directly through lower hydrocarbon fuel use and through reducing electricity consumption, say Matt Hatton, founding partner and Suruchi Dhingra, research manager of Transforma Insights.

Switch, conserve, diversify – the global IoT project to change the energy mix

The war in Ukraine is being fought through many unconventional means. One of the most prominent relates to energy supply and dependence. In 2021, about two-fifths of the gas that Europeans burned came from Russia. The war has boosted already high prices of oil and gas globally and several countries have further reduced gas imports from Russia. Under the same stance, the European Union member countries urgently plan to reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels and switch to other renewable sources for electricity generation.

How the demands of constrained IoT are reshaping the connectivity landscape

The IoT technology landscape is increasingly being defined by its ability to address large numbers of devices in increasingly inhospitable environments by virtue of slimming down the features and functionality of the offering to make it more appropriate. Last year, we at Transforma Insights published a report on what we termed the ‘Thin IoT stack’. The report examined the arrival of a set of technologies across the IoT stack that are specifically aimed at coping with dealing with the constraints of power, location, space, processing and several other factors that will be increasingly common in a large volume of IoT deployments. The implications of this shift will be felt widely across all aspects of how IoT is deployed, says Matt Hatton, founding partner, Transforma Insights.

IoT is good for the planet, but trade-offs are necessary

The use of IoT hardware and software applications will have a very positive impact on global sustainability but the trend masks significant variations between use cases, and over the lifecycle of the device. This was one conclusion from a recent report from Transforma Insights, ‘On balance, IoT is very beneficial from a sustainability perspective’. The report considers the overall sustainability implications of the deployment of IoT, including analysis of the impact on electricity consumption, (hydrocarbon) fuel consumption, water consumption, and CO2 emissions.
