Sustainable cities and the smart grid: how IoT facilitates responsible energy use

Sustainable cities and the smart grid: how IoT facilitates responsible energy use
The explosion of IoT technology has brought about many changes in business and everyday life. Arguably one of the most profound and important effects of this is the creation of sustainable cities, also known as smart cities.
 
In the U.S. and throughout the world, urban centers are using IoT devices, applications, cloud computing and AI to automate a variety of services—from public works to public safety. As a result, they’re conserving resources, reducing costs and improving efficiencies and quality of life.

Sustainable cities rely on a smart grid, an electrical supply network that uses IoT sensors and other digital communication technology to detect and respond to local changes in usage. A smart grid controls the energy flow according to demand and can take proactive measures to prevent waste.

With the increasing concern about climate change and the fate of the planet, sustainable cities are taking positive steps toward responsible energy use.
