The Intelligent Water solution helps make your operations and infrastructure more reliable and efficient. It integrates and analyzes a wide variety of data sources and provides both an intuitive way of visualizing and understanding patterns and anomalies, and an easy way of acting on them. The result is a view of water or wastewater operations that transcends individual systems, devices and departments.
The main sewage lines contain sewage water at higher temperatures than ground water and thus heat pump the ground in cities. Thus, these sewers and the surrounding ground are very efficient heat sources. Using this energy sources with heat pumps provides high efficiency and helps to reduce the issue of heat islands in cities.
CELSIUS presents best practice solutions in the area of smart district heating and cooling by taking a holistic approach to overcome technical, social, political, administrative, legal and economic barriers. The project brings together excellence and expertise from five European cities with complementary energy baseline positions: Cologne, Genoa, London, Gothenburg and Rotterdam. The consortium includes technical expertise form leading energy utilities organization as well as international renowned research and innovation organisations.
The project ship to grid tries to provide a solution for an increasing amount of pollution emitted by boats during lay times. In the past, ship owners could not turn off engines during lay times since no other energy supply was available. The ship to grid concept offers ship owner access to the electrical system of Cologne. This would allow ship owners to turn off engines during rest times and, as a consequence, lower the amount of emitted CO², particular matters and other pollutants.
Hanham Hall is the first site to be delivered under the government’s Carbon Challenge initiative and delivers 185 innovative new homes with integrated sustainable living and environmental considerations. The specially commissioned post-occupancy website enables a direct line of communication between residents and the housing management company, as well as within the community itself.
New smart city or "ubiquitous city" built from scratch on 600 hectares of reclaimed land along Incheon's waterfront, 65 kilometres southwest of Seoul Embodies two avant-garde concepts: (1) the Aerotropolis, and (2) the Ubiquitous City (U-City). The largest private real estate development in the world’s history Songdo’s urban model bears several distinct features: its ubiquitous computing allows it to micro-manage numerous aspects of the city such as energy consumption and traffic; and the city can "interact" with citizens at the individual level.
The project, a $20 billion, 28-acre commercial and residential area on Manhattan’s west side, is touted as being the largest development in the city since the Rockefeller center. Hudson Yards will digitally track environmental and lifestyle factors—like traffic, energy consumption, and air quality—and will include a trash-disposal system to remove waste via underground pneumatic tubes. It is being designed specifically to bring in millennials, and to provide the highest quality of life for those living, working, and visiting the area.
