Today, we are already more urbanized than at any other time in history, and the UN estimates that by 2050 roughly two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. The issues and challenges of urban development are critical to our future quality of living. It’s not surprising then that the Smart Cities Expo World Congress (SCEWC) attracts more than 10,000 people, representing hundreds of cities from around the world.

Grids That Are Smart Enough to Weather Tomorrow’s Storms

Summary: 

At the end of October 2012, Hurricane Sandy swept across the northeastern United States at speeds of 150 kph (more than 90 mph). Millions of people were left in the dark. In an era of climate change, energy management systems will have to become increasingly robust in order to withstand natural disasters like Sandy. Siemens Smart Grid technologies have helped for years to make power grids more resilient to hurricanes, heat waves and drought.
