Measurements for sustainable cities
03 July 2012
The Measurement Network Environment and Energy Special Interest Group, supported by the AIRTO Climate Change and Sustainability Interest Group, Carbon Disclosure Project and the British Standards Institution, is hosting a meeting that concentrates on discussions around Sustainable Cities, on 18 July 2012 at ARUP in London.
The event will be chaired by Chantal Cooke, co-founder of Passion for the Planet - the UK's only health and environment focused radio station.
Measurements and standards are crucial to underpinning the science, technology, policy and regulation critical to making cities sustainable. Discussions throughout the day will focus on:
Across transport, supply chains, energy distribution and buildings, how we measure sustainable infrastructure will allow us to recognise and provide the infrastructure our cities require.
Emissions Monitoring and Reporting at City Scale
Emissions Monitoring and reporting is a clear and definitive metric for how sustainable a city is.
Standardisation to underpin an Interoperable and Sustainable City
Standards play a central role in enabling 'smart' technologies that will see key services such as housing, energy, health, waste and transport delivered in a more personalised, efficient, transparent, measurable, integrated, resilient and responsive way.
The meeting offers an opportunity to explore current measurement, monitoring and verification challenges and future commercial opportunities; find out about existing and emerging measurement solutions and policy associated with the realisation of Sustainable Cities; network with organisations involved in Sustainable and Smart Technologies and their demonstration at City Scale; and to listen to case studies from leading companies.
There is no charge to attend this meeting, however you will need to register in advance.
