The Awards attracted interest from over 30 organisations across the world, from which 18 entries were received. They were judged by a team of independent industry experts that conferred 5 Awards that clearly demonstrated best practices in developing and deploying Analytics or IoT techniques.

“We’re very honoured to be recognised by these awards and we’re particularly proud to win an innovation award that is based on industry application,” said NNNCo’s Founder & CEO, Rob Zagarella. “NNNCo’s Demand Response IoT Solution for Ergon Energy has been highly successful and is going from strength to strength as we continue to develop it for further expansion.”

The low power wide area network (LPWAN) was deployed in October 2016 using the global open standard LoRaWAN technology, gateways mounted on power poles, and highly cost-effective sensors installed on hot water circuits.
