INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Commercial buildings can save up to US $ 60 billion, if investments for energy efficiency are increased, at least 1-4%, as revealed in a study by the American for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE).
"One of them is the regulation of power and electricity quality in commercial buildings. This will maximize the use and extend the life of equipment for business efficiency. In this case, intelligent networks as information convergence (IT) and operating technology, become the main link for intelligent building technology. , "said Eddie Widiono, founder of the smart network association in Indonesia, the Indonesian Smart Network Initiative (PJCI) at the Pamerindo Elenex 2018 Press Conference in Jakarta, Tuesday (4/9/2018).
The advancement of intelligent network technology contributes to the acceleration of IoT growth, especially in building renewable energy technologies, electrical devices, and energy storage systems.
"In terms of business, smart networks will also create new markets and opportunities worth up to US $ 100 billion, especially through the use of smart equipment for businesses, such as smart meters and data centers, smart substations, fiber optics and IoT sensors," Eddie added. Widiono.
Electricity and smart networks will continue to play an important role in building the future of industry 4.0 in Indonesia. Therefore, it takes a solid collaboration between the government and the private sector.
"For example, we use high-tech power transformers and distributions, to be applied by the State Electricity Company (PLN) for the distribution of electricity throughout Indonesia. Thus, even high-speed energy transmission can be achieved, even to rural areas," Vincentius said. Winarto, Business Development of Trafo Indonesia, as one of the 2018 Elenex Indonesia exhibitors.
Hundreds of other domestic and foreign manufacturing companies will participate in the 2018 Elenex Indonesia exhibition and 2018 Building System, which is targeted to be one of the largest annual exhibitions for IoT, building automation, and energy efficiency solutions.
