    In response to strengthened regulation and emissions trading

    Recent years have seen carbon neutrality become a global social issue. Power utilities and equipment manufacturers are increasingly required to observe tighter regulations, to shut down or upgrade inefficient thermal power plants, and to respond to the introduction of emissions trading.

    This is a microservice, one of the building blocks of TOSHIBA SPINEX for Energy. See also Related Services below.

    Optimizing boiler operation by collecting and analyzing data in real time

    Plant operation data is collected in real time, subjected to big data using AI / IoT, and the results are used to optimize boiler operation. Positive outcomes include improved thermal efficiency of power plants, reduced fuel costs, fewer CO2 emissions and a better environment, promotion of the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM), and an extended business life for each operator's business.

    Thoughts behind the name SPINEX

    SPINE + X

    The spine is our body’s central support structure, our core, home to the spinal cord that radiates nerves throughout or bodies. In the same way as the nervous system allows us to experience the world, edge computing delivers fast decisions in data processing by distributing sensing and control to every point where it is needed.

    Our spine makes us strong and agile. We can do the same for your business, and contribute to society, by providing an essential industrial IoT framework that supports your people and operations with fast, appropriate on-site processing.

    The X of SPINEX represents eXperience and  eXpansion, and the crossover with other value creators and services. This is how we will create the future with TOSHIBA SPINEX Services.

    Two pillars of the Toshiba IoT Reference Architecture compliance standard

    APIThe service is an open interface, not closed on itself, an architecture that enables third parties to safely create value.
    SecurityThe service implements system security that meets global standards. We can provide customers with all the information they need to assess those standards, and determine whether or not the service meets their business’ security requirements.
