The Smart City and Smart Grid exhibition and IBS will take place this October (20-21) in Paris. The exhibition along with its conferences and workshops will focus on the city, intelligent networks and sustainable mobility.
October 20-21—Paris Porte de Versailles will soon open its doors to the Smart City and Smart Grid exhibition in its 7th edition. Running together with the 11th edition of IBS (Intelligent Building Systems), visitors will learn about numerous city and regional projects expressing energy and digital transition that will be presented. The two events are focusing on the ambitious objectives of the energy transition in terms of consumption, carbon footprint and new associated uses.
Participating exhibitors are involved in intelligent networks and the sector of sustainable city and mobility. We’ll meet telecom infrastructure operators and network architecture; industrialists of public initiative networks; editors/integrators of intelligent software solutions for on-board, IoT, MtoM; manufacturers of equipment for the city (lighting management public – smart lighting, video protection systems – safe city remote reading-smart metering, waste management – smart waste) and more.
All news from the sector is covered through the cycle of 20 conferences developed by experts and covered by the best specialists in the sector. Here’s a list of some of the conferences to attend this year:
Energy transition as a major axis for the economic recovery of territories; energy renovation of public/private buildings at the heart of the France Relance recovery plan which questions how we can help cities reduce their carbon footprint and save money; traffic management, crisis management, parking, security; hacking, sabotage, data theft, ransomware; how to support the development of new forms of mobility (free-floating, loop vehicles, bicycles, autonomous vehicles, smart parking) while respecting public space?
Reducing the energy consumption of cities and territories is an underlying objective in any smart city project. Almost a third of the two large smart city projects that have been at the center of attention in France (Dijon and Angers) were financed solely thanks to savings in electricity consumption made on public lighting. We, therefore, need smart grids for cities that will be just as smart, Smart Grids for Smart Cities.
In addition to the topic of 5G, conferences will also focus on Artificial Intelligence and its uses for the city and territories in regards to mobility, traffic management, waste, parking, traffic management, citizen relationship and more.
As IBS hones in on the building industry, there will be discussions on new regulations such as the BACS and tertiary decrees as well as the RE2020 which have very ambitious objectives in terms of energy performance going to sustainably energize the profession. The building regulation sector (GTB, GTC, HVAC,…) should fully benefit from this dynamic, which is firmly rooted in the heart of the energy transition.
In addition, new trends in self-consumption, mobility, comfort, services and occupant safety should also experience sustained activity. More broadly, it is all urbanity, which is gradually changing, to adapt to energy constraints but also environmental in order to build a better quality of life for city dwellers.
On May 25, 2020, IBS inaugurated its new program: “Smart Building Tuesdays”, a live program, on the web and dedicated to current industry topics. Tune into the program to stay up-to-date with smart city news.
