We stock automation spares for use in the energy sector.
With the fight against climate change and the cost-of-living crisis, the energy industry is changing fast. Consumers want safer, cheaper and more reliable energy, and the increasing demand for renewable power means companies now need to implement advanced and sustainable technologies to be competitive.
Automation has become an increasingly important tool for companies in this industry. Capgemini reported that in 2017, only 28% of firms had a few or multiple AI use cases; today, the number is 52%. It allows for increased efficiency, more consistent quality control, easier access to data and reduced costs.
Of course, with an increase in automation comes the requirement for advanced maintenance strategies, such as one of the many preventative maintenance models. Buying spare parts is an essential aspect of preventive maintenance.
Types of Energy Industry Automation
There are a number of ways automation is helping to reshape the energy sector, improving sustainability, reliability and cost efficiency.
Smart grids are advanced distribution systems that use digital technologies, sensors and software to better manage the supply and demand of electricity in real-time.
Industrial sensors are used in renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and solar panels, managing their output based on factors like weather conditions and grid demand.
Demand response systems are also used to balance energy levels depending on demand and supply.
Consumers can be prompted to use more energy when wind, solar or water generation is high, further reducing the demand for fossil fuels.
We understand that, unlike other industries, breakdowns could be immediately noticeable to the end user in the energy sector.
Sensors, circuit breakers, controllers, communications technology and other automation components are key in keeping these systems running flawlessly.
