software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications to improve operational
efficiency, address energy loss, and proactively identify and rectify
network malfunctions and unsafe conditions. Abbo detailed C3
CyberPhysix, C3 Energy’s platform for developing industrial scale IoT
applications, and the smart grid applications enabling Enel’s digital
transformation and outlined the business value.

world’s leading energy producers in wind, oil and gas, and utilities,”
said Lynne Canavan, vice president of the Industrial Internet Consortium
and program chair of IOT Solutions World Congress. “Presenting a large
scale IoT deployment with Endesa, Ed Abbo’s ‘Internet of Energy’ session
