Cities across the world face the challenge of combining growth and sustainable urban development. City authorities experience pressure to provide more services to more people, but are bound by financial constraints. This development calls for smart solutions, incl. the use of open data. The vision of this session was to save water and reduce CO2 emission. The session focused on ways this can be done through use of open data and information sharing.
In the area of water supply and water efficiency smart solutions are key to secure a better utilization of resources in the long run. One way to approach this issue is by exploring the potential of the use of open data and by introducing data driven solutions that can help create energy efficient water supply and green growth.
Session at 3GF2013
The goal of the session was to explore how open data in practice can add value and foster innovation that enables sustainable urban growth. The session focused in particular on urban leakage and energy consumption in water supply and how open data strategies through new inventions and applications can enable citizens and utilities to contribute to water saving and reductions in CO2 emission.
