- DevicePilot Design and Build - use our streaming IoT expertise to help you architect and build for low TCO at scale
- Our new CPO brochure explains Service Monitoring and Management (SMM)
- We released a white paper explaining how CPOs use SMM and CPMS together
- We're proud to have partnered CPO Pod Point on their journey for more than 4 years, so huge congratulations to them on their successful IPO, yay!
- Year 2 of our EV FOI report got plenty of press: in the past year, 60% of UK councils received complaints about availability and/or reliability
- The Economist's "rEV Index" has ideas about how to address charging rollout
- The UK is expecting more EVs than Diesel cars to be sold next year.
- London's ULEZ zone expanded 18x.
- Connected Kerb aim for 190k public chargers by 2030.
- I caught up with EV.Energy and learned about their interesting "manage your charging, anywhere" model.
- Tesla: market cap shot up to more than $1trn thanks to Hertz apparently ordering 100,000 Model 3s (or did they?), they've passed 30k superchargers globally (potentially around 4.5GW of power!) and in the Netherlands are experimenting with opening-up their network to non-Tesla owners. Factoid: The idea for pressing the Model Y's chassis in a "Gigapress" came from Musk looking at a diecast Model 3 toy on his desk and wondering why big cars can't be made that way too.
- CPO Has-to-be (acquired by Chargemaster in August) issued a report on entitled EV charging: "Last chance to catch a piece of the market" which introduced me to the very German concept of Eichrecht (accurate, traceable, untamperable energy readings).
- Electricity Map is a beautiful, clear, real-time visualisation of electricity flows and carbon intensity (with a colour-blind mode, yay)
- Delta-EE predict 10m homes to have Smart Energy management by 2030 - hear more at their 24 Nov webinar.
- UK energy prices are now so high that utilities are actively telling new customers not to switch to them.
- Cambridge University is researching where the data from IoT devices ends-up with the "Internet of Stings"
- The Things Industries released Generic Node, reference hardware and software to deploy a sensor/tracker node on LoRAWAN, just by choosing options. Several popular RTOSs are supported, including FreeRTOS (AWS) and AzureRTOS.
- ARM announces "Total Solutions for IoT" to provide hardware and software co-development, assisted by the ability to emulation cores and chips in software before they are built - so an entire system can be simulated in the cloud well ahead of hardware availability. This is nothing new per se, but previously required fairly heroic levels of geekery with a hard distinction between hardware (simulated or not) and software. Making hardware look like software, within a modern CI/CD toolchain, has to be the holy grail and this looks like a good step towards that.
