Chinese RTOS platform vendor creates alliance for smart cities and energy IoT

By Nick Flaherty

Envision Energy in Shanghai has created an open-platform alliance that connects energy pioneers and IoT technology innovators to accelerate the digitalisation of clean energy.

The 'Energy IoT and Smart City Technology Alliance' consists of Envision, Microsoft, Accenture and others to use the Envision EnOS IoT platform. This enables users to build, deploy and operate energy management applications efficiently and reliably by combining real time computing with connectivity, a device library and a big data platform.

Microsoft's Azure Cloud Platform provides secure and flexible data storage and computing; and Accenture's Enterprise Service expertise ensures a seamless application integration process. Envision also intends to use ARM's web-based mbed development tools to collect intelligence from physical assets to EnOS.

"The old energy paradigm is breaking down and will be replaced by a new era of energy. Envision is leading a global energy technology revolution in an open and collaborative way. The purpose of this alliance is to accelerate the digital transition and solve challenges through great team work. Together we are dedicated to making the new era of beautiful energy a near-term reality," said Envision founder and CEO Lei Zhang.

"The powerful combination of Microsoft's Cloud and Envision's IoT platform will help millions of enterprises and consumers in hundreds of cities across the world to embrace digital transformation, creating a new benchmark for the entire energy industry," said Alan Crozier, Corporate Vice President, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft's Greater China Region.

Going forward, the Energy IoT and Smart City Technology Alliance will focus on enhancing technological and network exchanges and beneficial business practices among its member companies.
