Smart Grids strategies and city information platform
Combine and manage multiple data sources; provide inter-operability and data protocols between city domains (using public + infrastructure data + domain / system data). Basis for operational and decision making improvements.
Systematically exploit synergies between smart grid and broadband infrastructure
Integrated smart grid (renewables + storage + heat pumps + EMS* at consumer side). Managing a 'two-way' energy chain, balancing demand and supply dynamically between renewable and traditional sources.
Mobile ITS* (location-based route / travel information + traffic light systems = optimized traffic flow to reduce emissions and energy consumption).
Use real-time multi-modal info to offer choice, personalise travel, and improve customer experience. Exploit ticketing, social media, routing, vehicle location, and mobile data.
Create cloud-based agile processes-on-the-fly between people (and their devices) that support taxi and car sharing and offer preferential road use.
Connect key information sources with city monitoring systems (sensors, people); with city 'life-lines' infrastructures (transport, power, water, and communication) to build city resilience against incidents and crisis.
ICT sector will enable the deployment of integration strategies of the urban infrastructures with a variety of targets, for instance empowering people to interact with infrastructures (e.g. transport ticketing systems); enabling people to become a “sensor” within overall city infrastructures system through mobile devices as ubiquitous means; enabling business cases based on the integration of a city’s network infrastructures. REMOURBAN will focus specially on smart grids strategies and city information platform.
