IoT to reduce energy costs

Reducing energy costs across large estate is an area that IoT can enable better understanding of energy usage and control of the systems so that optimum comfort and energy performance can be met. The following areas are examples of where IoT technologies can be used:

  • Estate energy monitoring- equipment power monitoring to energy system usage and power usage.
  • Smart energy control systems linking sensors into Building management systems (BMS)
  • HVAC control – using sensors to get better control of systems
  • Estate utilisation – understanding how to use the estate to its maximum potential

If you would like to know more about CENSIS activity in this sector, let’s talk.

Health and social care

Low carbon healthcare is one of the health and social care subjects explored in our CENSIS FutureTech programme.

This is an area where Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could deliver huge benefits and enhance people’s lives.


Sector knowledge

Within the FutureTech programme, CENSIS met with people from different sectors to hear their ideas about the transformative potential of IoT.

IoT technology will transform business operations across Scotland and impact every sector of the economy.


5 subject areas

The Scottish Government-funded FutureTech workshops were held across Scotland throughout 2019 in the subject areas of

  • Food and drink
  • Health and social care
  • Smart towns and cities
  • Transport
  • Tourism
