Sustainable City Network hosted a free 1-hour webinar Thursday, July 14, featuring Erik Caldwell, economic development director for the City of San Diego, Seth Federspiel, net zero energy planner for the City of Cambridge, Mass., and Betty Seto of DNV GL.
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.
The webinar, titled Smart Green Cities: Case studies in resilient and sustainable energy technologies, explores on-going "smart city" initiatives that intersect with climate resiliency, clean and renewable distributed energy, microgrids and zero net energy concepts.
DNV GL also shares the results of a recent study of 30 cities and utilities nationwide on perspectives and opportunities for smart city private-public partnerships.
This webinar was sponsored by DNV GL.
The download includes a recording of the webcast (MP4) and the presentation slides (PDF).
