Global electricity consumption from street lighting could be slashed with smart cameras and sensors turned on, reducing emissions and advancing the energy transition, says the International Energy Agency.
A report from Greenpeace East Asia highlights the significant amount of emissions produced by internet use in China, and the need for the sector to run on 100% renewables by 2030.
Campaigners worry climate change denial is festering unchecked on social media. But evidence suggests posts showing people the positive role they can play in the energy transition are more impactful.
Join the dots: How the smart campus can better harness renewables, empower communities, and decarbonise cities
Smart campuses making efficient use of building space, energy and mobility could help urban centres to curb carbon emissions and drive energy transition. Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s Matthias Rebellius and IRENA’s Gauri Singh discuss the need for innovation and collaboration at a localised level in order to deliver urban decarbonisation.
Business models have traditionally focused on churning out evermore efficient new products. The future is using machine learning to make existing products as energy efficient as possible, says Jon Lindén, CEO of Swedish edge computing start-up Ekkono.
The momentum behind electric vehicles is transforming the car industry, but recent studies suggest fewer jobs than expected may be lost – if battery production is local.
Life on the edge: How grid edge innovations are enabling a more sustainable, decentralised and equitable energy system
The coupling of an increasingly decentralised power grid and advanced new technologies presents an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate energy transition. Michael Weinhold of Siemens Smart Infrastructure outlines how innovation at the grid edge will be a key component in delivering a more sustainable future.
Governments worldwide are accelerating the energy transition, but a lack of skilled workers risks creating bottlenecks in the roll-out of clean technology.
A sustainable energy future will be built on digital platforms for improving efficiency, optimising management, improving operational processes and coordinating an increasingly decentralised distribution network. Matthias Rebellius, CEO, Siemens Smart Infrastructure, discusses the factors driving digitalisation in the energy market and the new business models required to deliver this change.
Ditlev Engel, CEO of DNV's new energy systems unit, talks to Energy Monitor about how his company intends to help businesses and governments get on track to net zero through technological leadership.
As electricity systems digitalise and transition to renewables, they become increasingly vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks. Policymakers and utility operators are fighting an evermore sophisticated battle to keep the threat at bay.
Matthias Rebellius, CEO of smart infrastructure at Siemens, explains why consumers and companies need to understand the purpose behind smart solutions to be fully on board the digital energy transition.
Digitalisation could accelerate the energy transition and take the world to net zero, but the sector's own energy consumption and security concerns are potential flashpoints.
