Sir Isaac Newton was at his best when he was working from home. The legend goes that when the polymath stayed at home to avoid the plague of 1665, he discovered the laws of gravity, optics, and invented calculus.
Innovation is vital for a business to establish a competitive advantage. Putting it to work is another challenge in itself, however, and success often comes only after a protracted period of trial and error.
Take CLP’s digital solutions platformSmart Energy Connect (SEC) as an example. Its ability to rebound from the setbacks it encountered in offering an indoor air quality solution provides a useful lesson in the value of persistence.

Imagine a world where your car monitors your daily morning commute while safely parked in your driveway. On one particular morning, it detects a major collision along your intended route. Simultaneously, it checks your calendar and sees you have a critical meeting at 9:00 am with your most important client. Realizing you will miss your meeting if you wake at the normal time, your car alerts your smart watch to sound it’s alarm 30 minutes early. In just the blink of an eye, a potentially significant business disaster has been averted.

The world was not prepared for the pandemic. Never before has the entire world experienced such strange times. Working and studying from home has now become the new norm. The world is desperate to find a cure for this pandemic. Scientists are working hard to find the best treatment options, while “scientist-wannabes” are coming up with a variety of hoax measures to treat the global pandemic— everything from sesame oil, vinegar gargles, and sheep's head soup to garlic water. You name it.

Cities can use innovations to manage infrastructure and improve services, communicate with constituents and make better decisions.
Imagine being able to find the most populated sidewalk for a late-night journey to the train station or knowing the air quality in your neighborhood, rather than your whole city.
Chicago’s Array of Things (AoT) helps residents and local leaders access this information and more. The AoT is a network of sensors that collect real-time data about the urban environment, ranging from carbon monoxide to traffic.
When it comes to asset management, water utilities tend to weight their efforts toward preventive maintenance
Water utilities the world over faced with challenges, including of increasing demand, falling revenues and climate change. While building new assets remains part of the solution, enhancing the performance of existing assets is more important than ever before.
Our engineers have long incorporated green design into the new construction and renovation of our facilities. We also partner with companies and nonprofits to expand the number of manufacturers implementing green build- ing practices. Intel is a founder of LEED user groups that have driven cross-company and industry collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council.
We continue to install smart lighting systems in our buildings. The systems reduce energy consumption through daylight harvesting and occupancy sensing, and help us design future building management technologies.
New Strategic Directions Report reflects critical role of data and planning in water infrastructure systems
OVERLAND PARK, Kan., 4 June 4, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Smarter infrastructure, with data at its core, will play a crucial role in overcoming varied threats to our water supply. From precise reads of consumption rates and customer engagement to improved leak detection and climate change planning, a new culture of data science can extend our supply to drive sustainability and resilience. The accelerating move to embrace digital water by service providers and industry leaders will also better inform the asset management and planning programs necessary to overcome continued funding challenges.
