Smart Sustainability

What do we mean by Smart Sustainability?

The KES Smart Sustainabilty initative focuses on the part smart systems can play in sustainability, renewable energy, and climate change remediation.

It is well recognised that it is vital that the harmful effects of human activities on the environment, and the rapid consumption of the earth's resources, are reduced. Considerable benefits can be achieved in this area by applying intelligent systems methods and techniques to sensing, control, data analysis, prediction and modelling tasks in areas of carbon reduction, energy efficiency, renewable energy generation and related social, environmental and economic factors.

We have termed this concept 'Smart Sustainability'

Topics

KES International is collaborating with the Franch Laboratoire de Sciences, Ingenerie et Systems (LSIS), to organise the Third International Conference on Sustainability in Energy and Buildings, SEB'11, to be held in Marseilles, France, on 1 - 2 June 2011. In addition to Smart Sustainability, papers are invited from a full range of sustainability-related issues relating to renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy efficient buildings and other sustainability topics.
