    Have been following AMSC recently and SCON is due for big news...the recent filings point to it as well.

    At least they are now NASDAQ compliant on the share price. One small step..

    Jack, it's mind boggling all the patents and products this company has and only has a market cap of 25 million. Surely, we have to see significant revenue and share price appreciation going forward as the new business model gains traction.

    I see NES (Networked Energy Services) is now also a member of the G3-PLC alliance. Why oh why did Echelon not do this several years ago?

  • Believe the company has talked about this project previously so the news release isn't a revelation but what caught my eye is the reduction of lighting costs to the city as well the reduction of nearly 2 million pounds of CO2 admitted yearly. This type of project is a no-brainer for cities and businesses.

    The smart city streetlight conversion — including 3,615 luminaires plus Echelon’s intelligent hybrid lighting control system — was orchestrated by McKinstry, a full service energy services company (ESCO) servicing the Western and Central United States. McKinstry, in turn, collaborated with Northwest Edison, a full service lighting and electrical contractor serving the greater Pacific Northwest, and Echelon, for its lighting control system products and expertise — to upgrade Bellingham’s streetlight infrastructure. Once the installation is fully operable, the new lighting system is projected to reduce annual utility costs by approximately $200,000, and streetlight operations by $44,000 as well as retain Bellingham’s existing decorative fixture aesthetics using wired/wireless connectivity. The expected completion date is early 2016.

    There could be NES revenue on a new win in Poland to offset Enel lumpiness. Saw something recently related to it but need to track down the PR.

    Accenture's new study on IIOT

    The Accenture stresses that “embedded software will become more crucial to manufacturers’ ability to compete. Without it and the engineering know-how to sustain it, companies will not be able to develop the products and services needed to enable new opportunities, while satisfying existing demand.”

    The technology services company suggests that in order for manufacturers to take full advantage of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), companies, utilities and manufacturers/suppliers will need to adopt a strategy based on understanding that as their businesses develop and mature, opportunities and challenges in the IIoT sector will change accordingly.

    Accenture proposes a four-stage process to open businesses up to new opportunities as they develop. Embedded software is poised to play a critical role throughout.

    The four stages include operational efficiency, for the enabling of connected and intelligent devices and machines.

    Industrial technology companies can for example, provide utilities with advanced smart grid solutions and services focused on data management and systems integration that will improve its energy efficiency and grid reliability.

    Secondly, embedded software also gives rise to new functionalities and that can boost innovation (new products and services) – also reducing time to market.

    Thirdly, Accenture notes that embedded software allows a connected, intelligent enterprise to sense its needs and those of its customers (the outcome economy) and finally, autonomous control and automation – the stage where the Industrial Internet of Things involves “engaging fully automated manufacturing, driven by embedded software”.

    Looks like Echelon can still be a player over the next fifteen years in this 10 trillion dollar industry.

    Embedded software: Accenture’s 4 steps to adopting IIoT

    Research by management consulting and technology services company Accenture says that the Industrial Internet of Things has the potential to add more than US$10 trillion to the global economy by 2030

    The Industrial Internet of Things could contribute more than US$10 trillion to the global economy by 2030, according to recent findings by consultancy Accenture.
