London gets wireless charging for EVs | Green Futures Magazine | #smartcities | Scoop.it

 

If you think it’s strange to plug your car into the mains overnight, then how about this for something even weirder: a recharge that’s completely wireless. Just park over a special pad, and your electric car’s batteries start to charge.

Hacia una nueva economía | Ethic

Hacia una nueva economía | Ethic | #smartcities | Scoop.it

"los sistemas más eficientes tienen una estructura descentralizada, horizontal, participativa y adoptan un proceso decisional bottom up, que se orienta al aprovechamiento máximo y a la distribución óptima de los recursos. Este paradigma ya está emergiendo en el ecosistema mediático (con Internet), en la I+D (con la nanotecnología) y en el energético; algunos científicos apuntan que este sector avanza hacia un modelo en el que millones de consumidores generarán energía verde en sus hogares para su autoconsumo y compartirán el excedente a través de redes distributivas eficientes, logrando ofertas elásticas gracias a una retroalimentación permanente."

"What can you accomplish in 360 hours?"

I believe that it's positive the industrialization of construction process, but the objective seems to be just to accumulate empty buildings as assets, and then what?

The new economy: work closer, live smaller, connect better

The new economy: work closer, live smaller, connect better | #smartcities | Scoop.it

The Urban Land Institute’s latest forward-looking report for the real estate industry has lots of hopeful news for the environment, if perhaps also some sobering news for the economy. Titled What’s Next? Real Estate in the New Economy (print edition here, download here), the core of the 116-page analysis is divided into chapters titled Work, Live, Connect, Renew, Move, and Invest. It is the latest in an excellent series of trend-watching reports from the industry association and think tank, and was unveiled in late October at the Institute’s annual conference.

A Green Revolution in Chicago

A Green Revolution in Chicago | #smartcities | Scoop.it

Several major projects are on Chicago's lakefront docket, aiming to complete the makeover that began nearly a decade ago and create an unbroken, 3-mile stretch of green jewels. Up first is a do-over for Navy Pier. Remade just a decade and a half ago for $225 million, the current version is widely seen as a pavement-heavy, retail-dominated tourist trap.

The new scheme, shaped by the pier's owners and Gensler design, envisions new green spaces, sculptures and pools to go along with a redesign of the shopping arcade and family pavilion. A design competition is underway. Several favorites – including Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid and local architect and recent MacArthur “genius” winner Jeanne Gang – have already been eliminated.

The winning design is to be announced in mid-February, after a public viewing period of the finalists' proposals, starting February 2. The project, which is scheduled for completion for the pier's 100th anniversary, is budgeted around $200 million.

Smart Cities Web: City Google ….. Coming soon? Smart Cities Search engine… | #smartcities | Scoop.it

City Systems are getting more and more instrumented and becoming an intensive source of data. Smart meters, street cameras, traffic tolls, parking meters, mobile phones and other sensors embedded in all urban systems that forms cities generates huge amount of data which when intelligently analyzed valuable information can be produced for city leaders. Smart Cites are those that use such information to produce better services for their citizens, engage their community and become more competitive in the more increasingly global market place by analyzing the data in hand so they can be more effective and take better decisions.
With the existence of new sets of data and information, search engines may have a new role for both; city leaders and citizens, what’s the use of information if you are not able to search them and extract what’s valuable for you.
