Thailand’s PTT to set up AIoT-based smart grid project

Thailand’s PTT Public Company has signed a contract with the Singapore-based Envision Digital International to develop a smart grid project based on artificial intelligence and internet of things (AIoT). The project will entail integrating floating solar panels, rooftop solar panels, energy storage systems, and electric charging stations with Envision’s digital analytics software. The smart grid project will help PTT to achieve its 2020 strategic objective of zero increase in absolute emission growth rate. The contract follows an MoU signed between the two companies in April 2019 to work together on multiple initiatives around new energy and digital transformation.
