Software architecture for connecting electricity and water supply infrastructure
Clean and sustainable water supplies and low carbon energy access are the essential infrastructures/building blocks for economies, health and quality of life in sustainable smart cities. Coupling of cross commodity infrastructure and integration of energy storage is a challenge for smart cities. This project envisions a smart city infrastructure with efficient water and energy distribution networks in a distributed manner. The project involves development of hardware and software platforms to improve energy efficiency and water management, integration of on-site distributed clean energy resources and energy storage devices for better network efficiency and reduced carbon footprint.
Expected results and outcomes of the project:
The main goal of the project is the energy-efficient management of electricity and water by complementing both critical resources (energy and water infrastructures) in the smart sustainable cities. The core scientific research is on enhancing the overall efficiency by coupling of these most essential infrastructures through advanced ICT and intelligent computational framework.
