GridBeyond, the leading energy technology and demand side response provider, partnered with edie to create ‘edie Explains: The Internet of Things (IoT)’. This new publication helps businesses to understand the IoT concept and capitalise on its benefits.
The guide provides a comprehensive and impartial overview of IoT technology, its relevance to business operations and its impact on corporate sustainability. Readers will learn about the potential benefits of deploying IoT across their businesses, key factors that should be taken into consideration when looking to utilise the IoT and experts’ predictions for the future.
The guide will be particularly useful for energy, sustainability and CSR managers across both public and private sectors.
