Atos joins AI4Cities, the European project to accelerate the transition of cities to carbon neutrality

Madrid (Spain), Paris (France) – June nine, 2021

Atos joins AI4Cities, a 3-yr EU-funded challenge which aims to aid 6 European metropolitan areas and locations speed up their changeover towards carbon neutrality. This consists of: Helsinki (Finland), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark), Paris Region (France), Stravanger (Norway) and Tallin (Estonia). The synthetic intelligence (AI) options will in the end contribute to the reduction of CO2 in the places of mobility and strength, two domains dependable for eighty two% of all greenhouse gas emissions in European metropolitan areas.

Atos has been picked for the Phase one of AI4Cities: the pre-professional procurement (PCP) process that problems technology firms in the 6 metropolitan areas and locations to layout, carry out and check innovative synthetic intelligence options aiding them to modernize general public sector expert services and clear up societal vital problems. The picked firms will, with synthetic intelligence: assess travel styles to layout a lot more successful routes and schedules, contributing to a a great deal smaller sized environmental footprint optimize the use of electric car charging locations by offering tips based on synthetic intelligence and reduce the time to examine, system and market investments (e.g. for developing renovation). In addition, firms will do the job to optimize the intake and strength performance in buildings and increase the use of neighborhood renewable energy through demand management, making use of buildings as distributed thermal strength storage, among the other options. The whole funding for this challenge, which will be divided among the the picked suppliers all through the complete PCP process, is four.6 million euros.

Atos will be dependable for creating expert services through the option named “AI4GreenBuildings” which uses synthetic intelligence to enhance the strength overall performance of buildings and its influence in conditions of greenhouse gas emissions, through a command suite that screens the developing flexible strength supply (i.e. energy, heating , ventilation, air conditioning, drinking water) and usage in buildings. In parallel, the option will aid municipal determination-makers to build smarter and a lot more helpful streamlined procedures. The option will also elevate citizen recognition on how their actions can influence strength intake and CO2 emissions.

AI4GreenBuildings” proposes an innovative option to empower metropolitan areas and their citizens, allowing them to manage all the strength means of buildings, many thanks to an innovative Info and Conversation Engineering (ICT) system, that permits interoperability and integration of equipment (e.g. meters, sensors, and many others.) for successful technology, storage and intake management precisely created for houses, buildings, and even complete neighborhoods and communities. Its open, common, and flexible layout opens the doorway to upcoming scalability, replicability, collaboration, and integration of external communities in a basic way.

Atos will use equipment understanding (ML) types to exploit the collected info and to build AI-run expert services to optimize strength resource management and for that reason reduce in general CO2 emissions.

We are pretty happy to do the job on aiding supply a sustainable culture withAI4Cities, which is the ideal framework to check Atos’s most innovative options for increasing strength performance in metropolitan areas, with the required complex scope and the sufficient geographic dimension to get impactful and seen final results in a number of significant metropolitan areas of Europe”, explained Javier Valiño, Head of the Vitality, Weather and Decarbonization Device of the R&D department of Atos Iberia.

Atos has lately confirmed its situation as the leader of decarbonized and safe digital, driven by its ambition to achieve web-zero by 2028 and, by offering shoppers with the start of the most extensive, finish-to-finish decarbonization portfolio on the market: Backlink.

AI4cities is created up of a number of multidisciplinary partners from nations these types of as France, the Netherlands, Estonia, Denmark, Norway and Spain among the some others.
