    AI Support for Biomass Power Plant Business


    Among renewable energy sources that are spreading toward the realization of a low carbon society, biomass power generation is expected to contribute to waste reduction. Meanwhile, against the background where operation & maintenance (O&M) has been advanced due to the progress of AI&IoT technology, the optimization of entire production lines across equipment or entire plants, in addition to the stable operation of individual pieces of equipment, is desired. This report presents a case study of utilizing AI&IoT technology for the O&M of a biomass power plant and realizing the improvement of efficiency in operation management.
