Cities/Technologies/Climate Change. Are Energy Clocks the Smart Way to Make Cities Cleaner? (Tony Blair Institute for Global Change)

Olamide Oguntoye

  • Cities trying to go cleaner by cutting emissions often find smart technologies –despite their huge potential benefits – challenging to implement and manage.
  • At the heart of the challenge lies the need to develop holistic data solutions to support smart technologies.
  • Energy clocks present an opportunity to address the gap. Energy clocks are dynamic open-access data systems which can unlock up to 12 per cent emission reduction while saving cities more than $100 billion in annual energy costs.
  • Cities must align incentives on energy clocks, recalibrate administrative institutions and create viable channels to turn data into impact.
