Key Benefits of Implementing AI in the Energy Industry

Article | March 16, 2020

Artificial intelligence is now influencing in every industrial sector. How wonderful it can be to extend the benefits of this technology across industrial sectors that are facing crisis and imbalance of demand and supply all over the world! Energy is one such crucial sector that impacts all the other industries as they use power for their operations. This explains why, according to a recent BIS research report, the global AI market in the energy sector is expected to reach USD 7.79 billion by 2024 (Source). Moreover, research is being done in this sector to find out how the non-renewable sources of energy can be preserved, without creating a shortage in supply for human consumption. The use of renewable sources of energy seems to be the only savior. But, there are several challenges in utilizing renewable sources of energy too!
