As many of you know this platform was initiated by the IEC but supported by ISO and ITU. To start the discussions about #smartcities and #energy we will share a few links for you, but please add your work in the field and other links you think we should be following and sharing in our community.
To find out about the IEC work in the area check out: http://www.iec.ch/smartcities/
To find out about ISO’s contributions go here: http://www.iso.org/sites/mysmartcity/
To find out more about the work if ITU in the field check: http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/ssc/Pages/default.aspx
We have created an infographic for you visible on the homepage, but you can also check out the IEC one here: https://www.thinglink.com/scene/743537707447222273
This is just the start and we really hope that you will contribute by adding other links.
Let us know your work and inspirations in the field of #energy and #smartcties in this forum topic.

this very helpful infographic prompts lots of questions for me, one of them being this:
“which cities are doing the best job of integrating their smart city strategy with their smart energy strategy?”

Thank you, Gordon, I really appreciate it. I am not a specialist at all but I suspect visualising large amounts of data is a very helpful tool in #smart city, planning right? Is ‘big data’ an issue to consider too? (tech person asking;))

a few of the elements of the story here — Big-Data/Smart-Cities — are described in this article:
Bristol, Songdo and some other cities are starting to head down this road.

With the IEC group, I am an expert for new International Standard “Stationary Energy Storage System for DC Traction Systems”.
In the mean time, working for ADETEL Equipment company we have developped an Energy Saver for Urban Electrical Transportation Networks like metro, LRT…
It allows reducing energy consumption for traction by 10 to 20%. This is what could become energy exchange for rail in new cities.

Hi all — Great to hear about your work! Would love to hear more.
As for myself — I serve as Product Manager for the “The Cool Block”, a key initiative of the Cool City Challenge. I am energized by this opportunity to engage citizens into partnership with their cities, to help achieve smart sustainability, resiliency and livability goals while further activating demand in the green economy. I am working now with our technology partners to build the platform that will empower and support this social innovation.
Also, as Chair Emeritus of the City Protocol Task Force, I am exploring the development of data models to surface common data from essential city subsystems. This is valuable to managing a city as a whole system, and for supporting a robust marketplace of solutions which can be deployed in a diverse array of cities.

Hi! I am Yoshi chairing a smart city (community) infrastructures standardization committee in ISO (please see this link; http://www.iso.org/sites/mysmartcity/). I have a bit of concern that we may be too much focusing on the advanced technology applications such as big-data, IoT and so on, as if they are the main goals for us. We should never forget the goal is to achieve sustainable cities in terms of QoL of residents, efficient operation & management, and improving environmental aspects. The technologies are the tools to achieve the goal. I am specifically interested in the environmental aspects associated with energy. I very much agree with the view that IoT will be a strong tool and I would like to find the way to best utilize the IoT technology in order to reduce environmental burden for both renewable energy and fossil thermal power generation.
