Presentation: “The Evolving IoT Ecosystem at Genscape”
Abstract: A perspective on IoT past, present and future from Genscape’s research science & technology teams. Our long-standing market leading position in B2B Energy Information Services comes from nearly two decades of work serving critical proprietary Genscape information to our customers: Commodity Traders and other roles spanning the Energy industry. Genscape’s recent innovations in sensor technology as well as platform technology continue to bring new capabilities to customers looking for market insights in real-time across many energy asset classes ranging from Solar to Natural Gas to Power. In addition, we will provide the ‘real-world’ view of how to deploy, manage and maintain a global footprint of IoT devices requiring the exceptional talents of our Field Operations team. Genscape employs many sensor types each with its own unique capability to suit the use case under investigation and each with one or more unique environmental challenges which we will also review. The data acquisition phase is part of the curation process in turning our IoT data into market insights and this requires data analysts, numeric models and platform technology to deliver those insights to customers. We will walk through some of our products and software technologies that we run today and are building in our Next Generation platform.
Jason Fuchs is an engineer and data scientist with over ten years of experience in sensors and telemetry. Currently he is responsible for the research and development of new monitoring technologies and data streams for Genscape. Some of his successful projects include using electromagnetic field monitors to gather data on infrastructure energy usage, installing camera systems to track rail shipments, and using satellite photos to gain intelligence on new asset construction.
Jason joined Genscape in June 2009, having previously worked for three years as an electronics design engineer with Synlabs, Inc., where he explored germicidal and ink curing applications using pulsed ultraviolet light. He holds a Master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Louisville, where he specialized in the design of integrated circuits for biomedical applications.
