Investing in the data-driven energy market with Intertrust

Data is the foundational component of the energy system of the future. In a decentralised digital world with billions of connected devices, self-driving vehicles, smart homes and cities and distributedrenewable energy sources, the secure, efficient flow of data is vital. As major energy companies and utilities turn to data-driven business models and IoT to grow their lead and create new revenue streams, they are leveraging Intertrust’s expertise in securing and managing the exchange of energy data, and its ability to ensure the expectation of trust in these transactions.

At innogy Innovation Hub, we are constantly looking to stay ahead of the curve, which is why we are continuing to invest in Intertrust both as a strategic investor and a strategic partner. We are proud to partner with Origin Energy, World Innovation Lab, Philips and Sony to help grow Intertrust’s leadership position in secure data rights management. Intertrust’s excellence in trusted computing technology is fully aligned with our vision of a decentralised, smart, and connected world. We have been partners since 2016, when we made our first strategic investment; since then we have also launched two data driven platforms with Intertrust, one for grid data and one for smart home.

Our technologies are designed to support the data-driven transformation of the energy industry. As IoT and cloud computing penetrate the energy industry, our data rights management and secure systems technologies enable secure data exchange, network planning and trading for IoT-based retail, grid, trading and renewable energy applications.”
