In accordance with the official announcement made on the blog of the IOTA Foundation, a data structure of IOTA DLT, Tangle, will be empowering a smart energy sensor ecosystem SUSEE. The announcement revealed that the Tangle network will be integrated by SUSEE and it will link thousands of sensors to make sure that the distribution of energy is resource-efficient.
According to the official announcements made by the IOTA Foundation, one of the experimental projects of IOTA in the circle of smart energy, SUSEE, will be utilizing the data structure of IOTA, Tangle.
SUSEE stands for Secure Sensor Platforms for Smart Energy Networks and it is multi-lateral research and development alliance that involves the energy distribution network operator SWO Netz GmbH. They are the researchers from Fraunhover and Chemnitz universities, peerOS GmbH, mCloud Systems GmbH, and TIP GmbH enterprises, as well as the non-profit IOTA Foundation.
It has been revealed that Tangle will be used to facilitate the information transfers between the sensors that are responsible for sending information to plenty of end-users.
Tangle prove to be the best choice for this experiment due to its high standards of encryption, fast speed of executing transactions, and extremely low fees.
Holger Köther, the Director of partnerships at the IOTA Foundation laid stress on the matter that this use case is a crucial one for the progress of the adoption of the IOTA Foundation and said:
In addition to this, it should be known that the data transmission design of the project is going to be based on the Tangle and LoRaWAN wireless information transfer protocol of IOTA.
