Peterborough - Environmental Performance

Cities generate the vast bulk of the world’s CO2 emissions, and they account for 60 percent of all water allocated for domestic human use. As urbanization levels increase, how do city leaders ensure continuing water and energy supplies – while also promoting environmental sustainability? If you ask me, a good place to start is by making sure local utilities, government agencies, businesses and citizens alike are looking at the same information when making decisions about collective and individual energy use.

Fifteen years ago Peterborough was made one of four UK Environment Cities by The Department of the Environment and is set to become one of a cluster of IBM “Smarter Cities” being developed around the world. Peterborough’s growth targets to transform the city are ambitious and connecting the city systems is central to increasing quality of life for the proposed extra 20,000 jobs, 25,000 homes and 40,000 people that will be in the city by 2021 compared to 2001.

A new collaboration between the Peterborough City Council, Opportunity Peterobrough, Royal Haskoning, Green Ventures and IBM will help the city visualize energy, water, transport and waste systems to produce a real-time, integrated view of the city’s environmental performance. And citizens will be able to log on to the web portal to make more ecologically-minded decisions about their resource usage.

Search engines rank web pages by using complex
algorithms that follow very specific rules. He who is able to install backlinks on the most
number of relevant sites, forums, comment areas, and
article directories, wins the linking game. Better yet, you can set these keywords in your website URL, title tag of the page
and place hyperlinks of related keywords on your
page.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
find this matter to be really something that I think I would never
understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad
for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to
get the hang of it!

I supply the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, but I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

There is a lot of data all around us. We are unable to collate it, massage it and interpret it for several reasons. Primary among these reasons is the fact that there is no commonly accepted structure around the data. If there is a structure, then it is not a standard.

I agree with you that “a good place to start is by making sure local utilities, government agencies, businesses and citizens alike are looking at the same information when making decisions about collective and individual energy use.”

As we build city’s I think we need a very concise image of where we are at the moment, what has happened in the area in the past, and how we can best plan for the future. Getting it right the first time is so much easier than, deciding to go a different route later on.

Hi Vineeta

I think that’s a key point and in the right direction. I recently attended at water conservation talk which had speakers from NYC water dept as well as other thought leaders in this field. And the lady who represented the govt, mentioned that putting data online has definitely changed consumer behavior for the better. I think we don’t realize just how much water goes into our every day living. the statistics presented on the IBM smart planet website are astounding to say the least..great site btw.
