Information and communication technologies are a great resource of sustainability. The Ict (Information and Communication Technology) lay the foundations for the development of smart city and therefore, of increasingly green energy and development in the name of sustainability. The data in the hand of Brussels Conference.
The conference for the smart city, smart energy and ICT of Brussels, there has been a lot of talk about high tech and new technologies where the concept of sustainability could not miss. Neelie Kroes, the Vice President of the European Commission with responsibility forDigital Agenda highlighted between focal points on which ICTs can act positively by arriving at a more administration smart with a more intelligent management of society, with less waste and more "facilities", sectoral convergence and a clear decrease in the ecological footprint.
Here are the three focal points highlighted at the Brussels Conference.
Smart City. A smart city is a community that optimizes the use of resources while improving the quality of life. To make this happen, ICTs are indispensable and offer great potential, especially because they are there for all to see with the simplest and most advanced devices. In a smart city consumption can be automated, as can the controls and management of all resources. Automation is an integral part of technologies and now that they are becoming more popular, it is necessary to derive the greatest benefit for man and the planet.
Infrastructure Network. In this context, once again, are the telecommunications to play a leading role by creating connections between infrastructures, necessary to maximize communication, sharing and minimize waste, that is, the unnecessary duplication of passive infrastructures. From here there is a further food for thought: to render Internet even more powerful.
Green Ict. The information and communication technologies, consume between 8 and 10% of energy in Europe. With the spread of ICT, this consumption, by 2020, could double, especially in view of the creation of new datacenter with a Internet even more powerful. The ITC embraces a technology that aims to solve the problem ofecological footprint directly at the source, therefore it is necessary to develop strategies that reduce consumption. For now, whoever chooses the ITC will have the full support of the European Commission.
