New emerging technologies related to the “Internet of Things” digitalization and distributed energy resources are quickly changing the energy landscape for cities. Smart city technologies and concepts are defined broadly around the use of digital technologies to enhance performance and well-being, and reduce costs and resource consumption.
This free 1-hour webinar sponsored by DNV GL will feature two contrasting cities – Cambridge, Mass., and San Diego, Calif. – to explore on-going “smart city” initiatives that intersect with climate resiliency, clean and renewable distributed energy, microgrids and zero net energy concepts.
The webinar will feature Erik Caldwell, economic development director for the City of San Diego, and Seth Federspiel, net zero energy planner for the City of Cambridge.
A representative from DNV GL will also share the results of a recent study of 30 cities and utilities nationwide on perspectives and opportunities for smart city private-public partnerships. Register for the webinar here.
