1 ICT for Energy Efficiency: Local and Regional Initiatives Chris Fry, SQW

2 1 Presentation contents Project overview Emerging findings Case study: Budapest reconstruction of prefabricated buildings, Hungary Case study: Stockholm congestion charge, Sweden Case study: Malaga sustainable schools, Spain Case study: Daventry waste collection optimisation, UK Wiki-style website resource

3 2 Project overview Scope: The relevance of ICT achieving energy efficiency and sustainability objectives at local and regional level Objectives: Research and document existing examples of local and regional initiatives Deliver a set of possible paths for future initiatives, with key recommendations Outputs: Guide/toolkit for local and regional authorities Wiki-style website

4 3 Case study: Budapest reconstruction of prefabricated buildings Features Pilot project to demonstrate the indirect effects of reconstructing prefabricated residential buildings A research initiative - measurements in two buildings Data monitoring (temperature; humidity; solar irradiation; acoustics) & questionnaire surveys of residents Data analysis through computer simulation Key lessons learnt Clear project focus and organisational structure Easy to transfer methodology Strong policy relevance > uptake of recommendations The reconstructed, sample building The control building Source: Sára Horváth

5 4 Case study: Stockholm congestion charge Features Congestion tax using automatic number plate recognition technology Procurement initiated in 2003, 6 month trial in 2006 followed by referendum Metrics: traffic volumes, charge revenues, fuel/CO2, air quality Gothenberg scheme planned for 2013 Key lessons learnt Having a trial was not enough: the critical factor was successfully engaging citizens There must be tangible benefits for those impacted by the scheme – and adequate investment to achieve these quickly The technology MUST work – so that people trust it Before and after: 2 January then 3 January Source: Stockholm City Source: IBM

6 5 Case study: Malaga sustainable schools Features Implemented for 2 years so far, involving 29 public schools Managed and promoted by the City of Malaga via the Municipal Energy Co. Energy efficiency through new smart lighting systems (also solar PV installations) – control and monitoring using ICT Key lessons learnt Sustainability education opportunities Training for local employment generation Partnerships with university and industry - green technology sector

7 6 Case study: Daventry waste collection optimisation Features Optimisation of waste collection routing using RouteSmart Geographic Information System Cost saving £132,000/annum through reduced mileage and fuel use Key lessons learnt Technology and human interaction - testing and improving the route data based on feedback from local drivers Bringing new ICT solutions into existing service contracting arrangements Source: Produced by SQW © Ordnance Survey.
