Mobility transition, the circular economy, IoT for CO2 reduction, decarbonizing industry and sustainable development goals (SDGs) for business activity are some of the themes at the 5th Innovation for Cool Earth Forum (ICEF) event, which will take place on 10-11 October.
IEC Ambassador and Chair of Systems Committee for Smart Energy, Richard Schomberg will discuss the key contribution of standards during the session on IoT for CO2 reduction.
“IoT increases performance visibility, and where the savings potential is. It allows energy to be managed in real time based on immediate data rather than historic patterns of energy use. It enables new energy services and Utilities business models.
“The never ending development of sensors and on-line intelligence make available affordable building blocks for pervasive deployment. But which data should be collected? And how will it be used? How can the value can be monetized and shared? There is a need for a powerful governance for cyber security and privacy to overcome wrong fears and fake news.
Standardization of data models and interfaces is a master key for unlocking the overall value and pre-resolving the daunting complexity,” said Schomberg.
Hosted annually by the Government of Japan, the event attracts leading international figures and aims to provide a global platform to address climate change through innovation of energy and environmental technologies, including their dissemination.
