Digital twins, IoT and AI critical for achieving Net-Zero cities

  • 2 mths ago

Smart cities technologies will be a critical asset in a city’s decarbonisation strategies in their bid to significantly cut down on carbon emissions, according to a recent study by ABI Research.

"Technologies such as digital twins, smart streetlights, micro-grids, computer vision, smart city management platforms, and micro-mobility are all growing in popularity and can help with decarbonisation," said Dominique Bonte, vice president for verticals and end markets at ABI Research.

The research firm cited a couple of examples where these strategies have a direct impact on energy consumption, and they also encourage citizens to make a better choice to help their city decarbonise.

One is  London’s recent expansion of the ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) which uses a variety of technologies such as ANPR (automatic number plate readers), CCTV cameras, and environmental sensors to assess the impact of the new regulations.

Another example is Singapore's innovation district, Tengah, which deploys a variety of technologies to support decarbonisation including a centralised cooling system, smart streetlights, smart waste removal, a mobile app for citizens' smart metres, and mass rapid transport with a car-free city centre.
