Smart Cities and the Smart Grid

Smart Cities and the Smart Grid | Innovations urbaines | Scoop.it

Smart Cities and the Smart Grid: There are natural parallels between the Smart Grid and smart cities in terms of concepts and deployments, though cities have much more experience at evolution than the traditional electrical grid. After all, they have been adopting new technologies that disrupt the status quo for centuries. The Romans created aqueducts and fundamentally changed how water could be controlled and distributed in cities. Discoveries in hygiene and disease transmission and control allowed people to healthily live in population densities with minimized odds of large scale epidemics. And then automobiles exerted their influences on cities. In each case, city systems, policies, and people changed to accommodate new technologies, new knowledge and new practices.

 

Now, ambitious goals such as zero net energy buildings will change the relationships that physical structures have within cities, and in turn change the relationships that occupants (full or part-time) have within buildings and within cities.

20 Smart City Technologies for 2013 and Beyond

20 Smart City Technologies for 2013 and Beyond | Innovations urbaines | Scoop.it

Santiago Chile announced they’re going to become a “smart city” in 2013, and is just one example of a growing number of areas around the globe preparing and modernizing for the future.


In fact demographers have long predicted the mass urbanization of metropolitan areas across the world. According to the United Nations, by the year 2050, 80% of the world will be living in urban areas. The equivalent of seven Manhattan size cities will be built each year until 2050. For these cities to thrive they must use smart technology to its fullest. Let’s take a look at what’s available now and what’s coming down the pipe...

Excelente iniciativa boa.

This article and list goes over tons of new urban ideas that have a lot to do with sustainability and new urbanism. It shows a lot of energy efficient services and smart technology.

 

This connects to the Unit 7 TEK on new urbanism because it shows how urban places are changing for the future and how urban areas working toward sustainability may look in the future. It gives insight into some incoming or possible smart technologies.

I think this article gives us a peek into the future. As cities develop so does technology. This shows us as technology improves so does the lifestyle of the people from the city. This article talks about how technology could for example improve security in the area by facial recognition and you could have urban farming by using vertical farming.  I believe that we should invest more into technology as it will help us tremendously now and in the future, letting us as the article says for example wirelessly charge every car in the city.
