Max CO2 emissions reduction
Per Unit Reduction Potential
Energy Lost Annually
Independent, third-party researchers at Rho Impact recently evaluated the impact of robotic inspections and energy infrastructure digitization on reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.
Natural gas and coal power plants provide the bulk of the global power generated for electrical grids; however, this critical infrastructure is aging, leading to forced outages. These outages threaten plants' ability to reliably produce energy on demand and typically lead to increased CO2 emissions through the use of back-up generation. This study finds that, by decreasing the occurrence of forced outages, robotic inspections and decision-making software can provide tangible environmental benefits as they are rapidly adopted.
There’s a growing body of research showing that digitization of the built world is leading to emissions reductions hidden within our infrastructure.
