In both the industrial automation and consumer sectors, smart technology is taking over. In the energy sector, says components supplier EU Automation, this means smart meters and developments towards "smart cities running on even smarter grids". So how does a manufacturer keep up with what EU Automation describes as the deluge of intelligent devices and systems currently setting the energy sector alight?

"Interconnectivity between physical devices and communication networks is at an all-time high," says EU Automation’s MD, Jonathan Wilkins. "In the energy sector, the same advancements in automation and data analysis are making smart grids possible. Just as smart boilers let users know how much energy they're consuming, smart grids will be able to monitor the energy usage of an entire country in real-time."

To help industry gain a better understanding of smart technologies, EU Automation has produced a new guide, which is aimed at those with an active interest in the automation sector.
