The Cleantech Committee Presents: Smart Cities Through Resiliency and Sustainability
- 5.13.2015 - 5.14.2015
- UK Trade & Investment One Broadway Cambridge, MA 02142
Power resiliency has traditionally been provided by diesel generators. With the advent of new technology such as low cost sensors, cloud computing, analytics and the convergence of operational technology with IT, there is expectation that new solutions will arise that will also be more ecologically sustainable. Cities are starting to take advantage of microgrids, as well as other energy efficiency solutions, for example, trash collection. Property owners are beginning to see the value of more efficient buildings which can therefore provide longer run time on back-up power. Analytics are used to identify the best candidate buildings for microgrids and energy efficiency retrofits. But how will these ideas go from talk to deployment and from individual pilots to scaling around the world?
Attend the event to learn:
What are the critical challenges to resolve: political, technological, and behavioral?
Where are the opportunities for entrepreneurs and what are the new innovations in microgrid, cloud technologies, sensors and analytics?
How can we best leverage our substantial ecosystem?
How to aggregate data, connect the city, provide actionable information and, of course, bring down the cost?
About exciting new technologies from intelligent trash cans to connected cars to nano-grids.
