IoT, Sustainability and energy efficiency

Adriana Dergam,
Jiří Klimša,
Miroslav Lapour

Technology has driven global prosperity for centuries. Unfortunately, it has brought severe side effects. Some of today’s most pressing challenges have been partially caused by technology advances, as growing energy consumption and man-made CO2 emissions. However, IoT can be a game-changer for boosting energy efficiency and sustainability. We will address with experts this opportunity in commercially driven projects not only in words, but also in figures offered by real users.
