Smart energy technology is meant to model the most efficient processes and upgrades available. It can use energy efficiency, in conjunction with demand response, to make a house function optimally within the power grid/power delivery system.
Smart cities use integrated multi-modal systems (shared mobility services and autonomous vehicles) along with the Internet of Things and advanced analytics to enable people and goods to move faster, safer, cheaper, and cleaner.
Smart Water not only impacts safe drinking water systems but storm water and wastewater infrastructure as well. A Smart Water system is designed to gather real-time, meaningful and actionable data to assist in the efficient and effective management of a cities complex water systems.
Smart Public Services
Smart public services are part of an interconnected community that leverages the use of smart technology and data to improve their economic growth, quality of life and environmental impact. These services include managing things like:
- Energy consumption
- Street lighting
- Traffic management
- Public spaces
- Vehicle charging stations
- Crime prevention
Smart Buildings and Homes
A smart building or home uses intelligent systems and internet-connected devices to monitor and control the analysis of data and the management of appliances and systems (like lighting, heating, cooling and security) with real-time data.
Data is key to all smart city initiatives. It compares new data with existing data to drive insights, action, and project success. Integrating smart city data into existing systems like GIS, Asset Management or even enterprise resource planning systems allows cities to maximize their investment.
