According to Bangalore-based Business Line, Intel India plans to add 20 new partners in the country next year to its energy management drive. This project is designed to help homes, commercial establishments and industries reduce power consumption.

Speaking to Business Line, Mr S Natrajan, General Manager, Embedded Sales Group, Intel India, said, “Energy management is becoming more important to homes, commercial establishments and industries, and Intel plans to improve power savings with the help of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.”

He said traditionally devices like refrigerators and TV draw power directly from electricity sockets, but with M2M, you could use smart plugs to monitor electricity consumption of a device.

Intel has already worked with Infosys to develop a digital smart home gateway. The company is also reported to be developing street lights that turn on and off automatically with KLG Systel, and creating energy-saving products for the textile industry with Wyfine.
