Feria International del Sector Electronico (FISE)

Na přelomu listopadu a prosince 2017 se konal v kolumbijském Medellinu veletr FISE (Feria International del Sector Electronico), jehož součástí byla výstava produktů spadajících do oblasti Smart Cities. Českou republiku reprezentovaly dvě firmy: CROSS Zlín a Škoda Praha. V této souvislosti je nutno zmínit, že Medellin byl vyhodnocen jako nejhezčí město latinské Ameriky a je proto zcela přirozené, že rozvíjí koncept Smart Cities.

INTELLIGENT ILLUMINATION AT A DUTCH SEAPORT - STUDY

The Port of Moerdijk is the fourth largest seaport in the Netherlands. This port is important not only as a European transportation hub, connecting the Netherlands to the rest of the world but also as an industry terrain home to hundreds of companies. Because many businesses located here continue working around the clock, there is a need to keep the terrain well-illuminated at all hours to make sure the visitors and employees always feel safe and comfortable. However, the Port of Moerdijk aims to evolve into one of the most sustainable ports in Europe and make its outdoor facilities energy-neutral by 2030, which requires focusing the attention on energy conservation. Because a large share of the electricity consumption goes into powering outdoor lighting at the port’s industry terrain, optimizing outdoor illumination is key to achieving the Port’s energy and sustainability targets.

Lyft is now offering self-driving car trips in Boston

GEN H

12/15/2017

Lyft’s first self-driving car pilot is officially underway. The company is sending autonomous vehicles — developed by the startup NuTonomy — to pick up passengers in Boston’s Seaport district, which is a growing tech hub. The cars are not completely driverless, as human safety drivers will remain behind the wheel, ready to take control when needed. But it’s a big moment for Lyft, which has seen its star rise this year as its main rival Uber was beset by numerous self-inflicted scandals. More information

San Francisco rolls out citywide demand-based parking prices

GEN H

12/15/2017

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (MTA) approved last week a citywide expansion of its demand-based parking price program, according to NextCity and others. San Francisco is now the first U.S. city to implement a surge pricing program at all of its meters, parking garages and city-owned lots. Demand-based pricing had already been rolled out at 7,000 of the city's metered parking spaces, as well as 14 city-managed parking garages. Now, by expanding the program to the rest of the city-owned parking spots, leaders hope to decrease traffic congestion from drivers circling the streets for parking, and to also increase the parking turnover on popular streets. The metered pricing currently has a minimum of 50 cents per hour, with a cap of $8 per hour. Under the program, the city will adjust meter rates every three months based on average occupancy. According to NextCity, if a block is consistently at 80% or more occupancy, the rate will go up 25 cents. Alternatively if it is below 60% occupancy, the price will drop 25 cents. More information

Singapore Goal of 200 Hectares of Rooftop Greenery by 2030

GEN H

12/15/2017

One of the stated goals in the Sustainable Singapore Blueprint is the creation of 200 hectares of rooftop greenery by 2030. Due to limited land space, sky rise greenery has increasingly become an essential component of sustainable urban development. It was recently announced that the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s ‘Landscaping for Urban Spaces and High-Rises (LUSH)’ program – which encourages developers to green their buildings at the ground and upper levels with sky terraces and roof gardens – will be expanded to include urban gardens and communal rooftop gardens on buildings, and increase landscaping on walls and roofs.

Everybody goes crazy about Bitcoin! Bitcoin boom may be a disaster for the environment says article on CNN!

12/15/2017

Bitcoin's phenomenal rise this year may be making speculators very rich, but some observers say it's terrible for the environment. Critics say the cryptocurrency is a "fraud" and they warn of a bubble. Environmentalists worry about another risk -- that it's seriously hurting efforts to combat climate change. "Bitcoin is slowing the effort to achieve a rapid transition away from fossil fuels," meteorologist Eric Holthaus wrote in an article on environmental news site Grist this week. More information
