Energy and Utilities
“I don’t want to be worried about building my own time series database. I don’t want to even be worried about managing my own time series database… By using InfluxDB Cloud, we’ve got that whole responsibility lifted off our shoulders.”

Why use InfluxDB for Energy and Utilities?
Built for developers, InfluxDB is central to many industrial-grade solutions in the energy and utility sector, providing high-volume data ingestion, high-ratio compression, and low latency data queries. As the energy industry continues to modernize, organizations face pressure to reduce operational costs and to improve security and sustainability practices. The increased adoption of renewable energy sources, coupled with socio-economic changes, leaves energy and utility companies looking to modernize their infrastructure.
There is a need to shift key operations to the cloud and to configure these systems to access and analyze all their edge data, regardless of its source (i.e., smart meters, solar panels, pipelines, refineries, etc).
Stakeholders at the edge also need to ensure that they have the ability to process and analyze data generated there for use at the edge and, at the same time, reliably replicate that data to the cloud for centralized aggregations and analysis.
No matter what systems or protocols energy and utility organizations rely on, InfluxDB has the tools to efficiently collect, store, process, and analyze sensor data (e.g., MQTT, Modbus, OPC-UA, etc.).
Improved operational insights
- Use sensor data to gain ecosystem-wide insights
- Reduce corporate carbon footprint and improve sustainability practices
- Enhance safety across all sites (refineries, oil rigs/drills, and power plants)
- Eliminate organizational data silos to increase output
- Enable predictive maintenance, reducing machine downtime
- Improve plant output by increasing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)
Modernize the industry
- Replace legacy historians for Industry 4.0 compatibility
- Create digital twins to guard against cyber attacks and improve system reliability
- Ingest high-volume sensor metrics in real-time and at scale
Built for developers, InfluxDB is central to many industrial solutions providing high throughput ingestion, compression, and real-time querying of sensor data. Stakeholders across energy and utility organizations use InfluxDB to collect sensor data used to improve day-to-day operations and increase output while reducing costs and helping modernize the sector. Use InfluxDB to integrate and monitor all your IIoT/OT data in a central platform.
