Solo: Will the IoT help the widespread adoption of renewable energy sources?

Renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and solar farms are going to be a key part of our future.  How will the IoT impact their adoption, and what role will data play in this? Analysing historic and current meteorological data can help provide accurate forecasting to ensure less downtime by renewable energy sources, and also provide important operational intelligence to energy grids as to when they need to redistribute other sources to their consumers.  This talk will also address future directions and advances storage technologies and the important role in plays in implementing smart renewable technology for everyone.

  • How can cities apply smart solutions to help them become more sustainable and environmentally friendly, even moving towards carbon neutral – and what are the key KPIs to monitor?
  • How the IoT can be used to help cities achieve their Sustainability Development Goals?
  • Cities need to be growing smarter and more sustainable in balance, will it reach a point where the KPI’s for these two are mutually exclusive?
  • Estimating how energy management will reduce wastage and cut global emissions in areas such as electricity, water and waste management vs. monitoring actual outcomes.

03:20PM

Case Study: Will global city partnerships change the development of smart city solutions?

As cities are responsible for two thirds of the worlds overall energy consumption and around 70% of all greenhouse gas emissions, global regulation standards are being called for. This has resulted in the development of global private-public partnerships. This talk will look at, how these are set to mutually benefit both cities, their citizens, and their respective commercial ventures.
