The Sectors Where the Internet of Things Really Matters

The Internet of Things is emerging as the third wave in the development of the internet. The IoT is expected to connect 28 billion “things” to the internet by 2020, ranging from wearable devices such as smartwatches to automobiles, appliances, and industrial equipment. The repercussions span industries and regions.

At Goldman Sachs, we see numerous triggers turning the IoT from a futuristic buzzword to a reality. The cost of sensors, processing power, and bandwidth to connect devices has dropped low enough to spur widespread deployment. Innovative products like fitness trackers and Google’s Nest thermostats are demonstrating the potential for both consumers and enterprises. And corporate alliances are taking shape to set the standards needed to integrate the wide array of devices in a cohesive way.


While these enablers make the IoT possible, its long-term success depends on the use cases that help realize the economic potential of connecting billions of devices, either to improve quality of life or save money. We focus on five key verticals where the IoT will be tested first: Connected Wearable Devices, Connected Cars, Connected Homes, Connected Cities, and the Industrial Internet.

Prepaid smart meters outwit Africa's power thieves

One company, says smart meters may hold the answers to the power problems of the world's emerging markets.

While smart meters have been in use in the United States and Europe for more than a decade, in markets such as Africa they are set to encourage much-needed investment in the sector.


The devices not only record electricity consumption but relay information back to the utility for monitoring and billing purposes. Critically, they also require pre-payment which means that utilities that produce the power can be sure they will be paid for it.

"The city had two major problems," Ballock told CNN. "The first was they couldn't collect the cash from customers -- either businesses or individuals. They had 800,000 customers that were an average 500 days in arrears.

"The second was that a lot of clients were stealing electricity and that's very common in emerging markets."

4 Sources of Renewable Energy

4 renewable energy sources are expected to power the world in the next few years to come.


It relies on wood products, solid waste, forestry and agriculture byproducts, which are burned together to produce energy inside a gas turbine. 

Wind energy

It works by having the wind rotate the blades of a windmill, which are connected to the main shaft that houses the entire generator. 


Solar thermal systems

The system works by absorbing solar radiation using its solar collectors. These will end up heating air or water to activate steam, which is required to run a turbine. 

Photovoltaic cells

Through a microchip-like material, it is able to produce energy by absorbing sunlight.
