May 14, 2014
| Presentations

Cities face a number of challenges from providing adequate transportation to improving energy efficiency to conserving water. From the smart grid to smart parking, the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT)—smart, Internet-connected devices—has created new opportunities for cities to leverage technology to offer new services to their citizens, optimize the efficiency of existing services, and improve the overall sustainability of their communities.

Daniel Castro will discuss the emergence of the IoT and its impact on sustainability and energy at a breakfast panel hosted by Microsoft, the Information Technology Industry Council, the Center for Data Innovation, and DESSC. The event will be held from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM, at the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center, 901 K Street, NW, 11th floor.
