4 Ways IoT and Data Science Are Being Used to Fight Climate Change
New technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and applied data science in general, have the potential to advance our understanding and ability to effectively address climate change. One promise of IoT is to make all kinds of devices and environments more efficient and responsive to real-time fluctuations in use. What this means is that IoT systems at various levels of implementation can affect energy use and emissions. In 2015, researchers found that “the information and communications technology industry (which includes IoT) could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 63.5 gigatons, or 15%, across all industrial sectors by 2030.” Green buildings are one use of IoT that could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Given that cities “account for almost three-quarters of the world’s carbon dioxide from global final energy use,” the potential for environmental impact by increasing green building construction is huge. Among other things, integrated IoT provides real-time data to improve buildings’ facilities costs. Green buildings can also reduce environmental impact by using eco-friendly building materials, increasing green space in cities, and being located efficiently to reduce commute times.
