Utilities industries the world over are facing massive challenges. As the world’s population grows and develops, expecting ever-greater access to energy and resources – and as national and international regulations drive shifts away from fossil fuels to cleaner and more renewable methods of energy production – utilities firms must simultaneously innovate and expand.
Yet the distributed nature of many renewable energy sources – wind farms, solar panels and so on – means that energy firms need to manage a far larger number of assets, spread across wider areas, than ever before. Then, once that energy is generated and distributed, it must power not only homes and businesses, but a wealth of new innovations such electrified transport. Supply and demand must be carefully balanced, always.
.Augmented reality is emerging as a tool that is transforming the classroom. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, schools have closed, year groups sent home to quarantine, and classrooms have moved to the home, albeit temporarily. Never before have we ever needed a technology to transform learning at home and support home-schooling - whether teachers are running digital classrooms or parents teaching their children in a more engaging way.
