The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is one of the main technology drivers behind new applications in the Energy Industry. However, integration of different technologies, processes, business, social, and regulation realms presents complicated security, privacy & interoperability challenges which must be addressed as IIoT technologies develop. The Industrial Internet Consortium is bringing together global energy leaders to discuss requirements, gaps and opportunities for leveraging the data that is building up within and around our energy systems, and to use that data to increase production and decrease costs. The IIoT Energy Forum will highlight the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) and NIST’s activities in the Energy sector – shining a spotlight on smart grids, industrial analytics, security, and other emerging technologies and applications in energy.
