Energy is an indispensable part of any city. Amid the global smart city revolution, energy utilities are transforming their business models: adopting advanced technologies to pursue sustainable development and provide innovative energy solutions. Three speakers from leading players in the industry share their inspirational views and set the scene for future smart city development in Hong Kong.

“Master the Unexpected: The Power of Utilities to Transform Smart Cities” Ynse De Boer
The utilities sector is one of the key smart city players. In today’s connected world, utilities drive the smart city agenda forward from different angles such as infrastructure, energy, water and connected homes. It takes an ecosystem to bring a smart city to life and it is important to have the right partnerships in place with the right business model to have a sustainable and continuously improving smart city.

“Creating Smart City Opportunities in the Energy Sector” Steven Davidson
Digital reinvention is inspiring new business models enabled by mobile, cloud, social, analytics, IoT and blockchain, and this is accelerating developments on Smart Cities. What do we mean by ‘Smart Cities’ and what are the trends for the future? What role does the energy industry have to play in the Smart City agenda? How we do combine breadth of vision and the ability to execute practical improvements for citizens and sustainable business models for enterprise?

“Digital Technology for Energy Efficiency” Travis Kan
Buildings are the bedrocks of our cities. About 90% of total electricity consumption in Hong Kong comes from buildings. As the demand for energy continues to rise, so too does the threat of climate change. To create truly sustainable cities, the buildings of the future will need to be more efficient. Travis explains how the ‘Internet of Things’ allows us to take energy-efficiency to the next level. He shows us the latest technology helping buildings to reduce energy costs, meet sustainability goals and boost building value while maintaining a productive and comfortable environment.
