Internet “things” and renewable energies on the Iberian Peninsula
Within a time the internet of things will be as popular or the internet that we know now.
But what can be done with free things?
We are going to build a society in which intelligent houses, factories intelligent remote healthcare, energy efficient intel·ligengias_renovablesents cities, airports, intelligent, etc ….
A smart homes of the future will be aware of what happens in a building, you can optimize resources: energy saving and water safety: detection of theft, fire detection and structural problems have more comfort with less expenses.
Companies will be able to track their products through radio frequency identification tags, will reduce their operating costs and improve productivity. There will be maintenance of machinery through sensors, real-time monitoring of the status and performance of the equipment.
Health Internet of Things will enable increasingly patient medical communication much more efficient that patients will receive better care and are more satisfied. Control and prevention of diseases intelligent wearable pieces.
Energy and smart grids
This field has many similarities with the houses, factories and smart cities such as detecting scenarios for energy savings, remote measurements also can be sold to get solar energy, windmills or other forms renewable energy.
There are also other areas where you can apply the Internet of things like shopping, so physical and online, transport and logistics, cars etc …
All these things are connected through Internet devices and sensors that apparently will grow exponentially for several years. Billions of components produce, consume and process information in different environments.
Internet of things will change even more business models, the Internet has changed now. The company will need new solutions and new innovative business models.
According to Jeremy Rifkin (Advisor to the European Union and leaders like Merkel, Sarkozy and Professor oldest business school in the world, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania) “2050 capitalism will not have disappeared, but no longer will be the dominant economic model. ”
The exhaustion of the capitalist system, the advancement of technology and the effects of the economic crisis we are suffering since 2007 have favored, according to Rifkin, the birth of a new alternative economic system to a market economy: the public utility Collaborative, consisting of millions of prosumers (producers and consumers at the same time).
Spain was on track for renewable energy, but with changes in legislation, Spain “vade retro”. If reforms are undertaken the following: stop using fossil fuels, encouraging other communications not centralized and change “fools roads” roads intelligent energy, the country can not move forward and should prepare for the “Third Industrial Revolution”.
There are countries like Denmark, Germany and China who have listened to the experts, advisors and are making reforms to adapt to these changes.
As we see internet of things is an opportunity for all and a change of mentality, but to adapt internet of things will require the installation of new technologies that involve almost all productive sectors: construction, architecture, electricity, transport, communication technologies … And they will not robots, but people.
So there are lots of work for at least forty years at least. We say there is no money for it, but it is an excuse. Diners exist, what happens is invested in old infrastructure always obsolete. It could start tomorrow if it wanted.
Do not be fooled, and we demand this change and begin to build the present for a better future
