The easiest and most optimal way to improve the energy efficiency lies on digitisation or technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and smart data. 

This is the declaration of Mike Hughes, Zone President for Schneider Electric UK & Ireland, who took the floor at the company’s Innovation Summit yesterday.

In his speech, he marked that digitisation could significantly enhance and diminish costs.

No matter which is the sector we are dealing with, the key to success represents the efficiency.  
The IoT technologies could reduce considerably the costs through preventive steps and detection of gaps that could be overlooked otherwise.
While asked about BREXIT consequences for UK in terms of energy, Mike Hughes stated that not too much will change for the country, as only 10% of the energy consumed comes from EU.
