The energy industry is the number one contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and 70% of all CO2 emissions comes from urban areas worldwide. Cities are key to the solution of the climate challenge.
For the first time, digital infrastructure energy consumers are able to see their total energy consumption: electricity, warm water, and heat in real time. Reports show that the increased awareness changes energy behavior in a positive direction for the environment. In addition, affordable Smart Grid technology has been tested in grid areas where this kind of technology was not economically viable before - this session shows how the sustainable data center factors into these advances in grid network tech, and how we go about planning our future Smart Cities.
