Faced with grim predictions of energy supply and consumption, companies are searching for cleaner, smarter, and more conscientious methods of energy production, transmission, and distribution.
The Geographic Information System (GIS) along with mobile location and awareness technologies are supporting and underlying the progress, and has improved the energy is produced and delivered. In the energy sector, GIS is used to assist with discovering new generation facilities, helping determine the optimum route for new transmission and distribution lines, to determining demographic changes as part of long range planning, and to developing emergency evacuation plans around nuclear generating facilities.
GPS, Assisted GPS (A-GPS), Wi-Fi, Enhanced Observed Time Difference (E-OTD) and Enhanced GPS (E-GPS)--a plethora of location aware technologies and location APIs are the major driving forces that are making it easier for mobile application developers to gain access to location information and develop innovative location based service applications.
In the last few months, we have looked at the scores of mobile location and aware technology solution providers and have shortlisted the ones that are at the forefront of tackling challenges in the arena. A distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, Analysts and the editorial board of Energy CIO Insights have selected the final 10.
