Advanced automation and monitoring tools have enabled conventional energy companies and industrial plants to significantly slash their operational emissions and energy use. Now, these solutions are allowing emerging low-carbon sectors to optimize their operations as well, says Peter Zornio, chief technology officer at Emerson. The company provides energy management systems that track, automate, and optimize processes to save energy and money. These tools are often customizable and used in different processes by a variety of companies, from oil refiners to chemical plants to hydrogen plants. Alongside Emerson, other players offering digital tools for the energy world include GE, ABB and IBM, along with mega-companies like Amazon and Microsoft.
