The future of energy in smart cities at the center of the third City Vision forum

Oct 1, 2021

From decentralized energy production for self-sufficient energy communities to the use of new technologies for buildings with almost zero energy needs. From the involvement of startups with their innovative solutions to the best practices implemented by local administrations and multi-utilities. These are some of the trends that will characterize the energy of the future in the smart cities of tomorrow.

These were the themes at the center of the City Vision Smart Energy & Building Forum, which was held in Padova (Padua) in hybrid mode on Wednesday 29 September, the third stage of City Vision, an event conceived by Fiera di Padova and Blum dedicated to the future of intelligent cities. With three vertical forums in 2021, concluding with the long-awaited return for two days in person, November 30 and December 1, which will be entitled “Human + Tech for sustainable cities“, dedicated the integration of skills and technologies for sustainability.

The morning program, opened by the intervention of the president of the Symbola Foundation Ermete Realacci, continued with a panel on the theme of “Smart Energy and Smart Building“, while a focus input, by Unicredit, took stock of the opportunities of the Superecobonus, one year after its entry into force.

The panel “Living intelligent buildings” was also of great interest, which focused on innovations such as sensors that through algorithms indicate methods and times for natural ventilation of closed environments, apps that focus on the creation of new communities in condominiums as real social networks , but also graffiti offering 5G connectivity.

The data that emerged from the City Vision Trends observatory were an opportunity to reflect on the main dynamics of innovation in the field of smart energy, while companies and public decision-makers then discussed the best practices for the integrated construction of intelligent urban systems implemented by Italian municipalities and multi-utilities. Francesca Miazzo, Ceo of Cities Foundation, finally offered a trip to a smart district, a green and intelligent neighborhood that will be the core of the city of the future.
