Networked, smart, green: IOTA could make Trondheim a high-tech stronghold
IOTA is to help Trondheim become Norway's technology center. In a workshop for policy and business representatives, attendees discussed the potential of IOTA's tangle technology for the age of smart cities in January. The "Powerhouse Brattørkaia" from Entra is to serve as a test laboratory. The project, which is still under construction, is quite ambitious. It will generate more renewable energy within 60 years than the total amount of energy required to build, maintain and demolish the building.
Energy-thawing office building
In a press release, Entra estimates that office buildings account for 40 percent of global energy use. Therefore, it would be desirable to upgrade them from energy wasters to producers. Last but not least, in order to supply surrounding buildings with decentralized, sustainable electricity. For Entras Powerhouse Brattørka IOTA could take a key position here:
If the new powerhouse […] finished, it will produce more electricity than it consumes. One topic is how this energy can best be used by the neighbors; the other, how to pay them. If buildings like the Powerhouse are filled with innovative technology and connected to the network, you need to be able to share that information securely and securely. In the workshop, attendees discussed how to use distributed ledger technology, such as IOTA, to do just that
In addition to the IOTA Foundation, the organizers include the project + CityxChange (Positve City Exchange). The European Union-sponsored Consortium of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is dedicated to the development of urban blocks and urban districts with a positive energy balance. Project Coordinator Silja Rønningsen on the IOTA Workshop:
This workshop was an important first step in realizing our vision of sharing the future we want to live in.
Entra plans with her powerhouse Brattørkaia to create a positive example of such a livable future in Trondheim.
