Western Tidewater Regional Jail Case Study

Reducing energy consumption at state-funded and municipal buildings has been, and remains to be, an important initiative for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

• Learn how the misuse of energy and water usage by prisoners resulted  in reduced energy costs as well as promote a safer, more secure facility 
• Discover how boilers running at 75% to 100% now run more efficiently and dramatically impact energy, maintenance, and repair costs

ICMA SMART COMMUNITIES: Rethinking Infrastructure - A Report Co-Sponsored by ICMA and Siemens

Cities and counties are deploying smart cities applications to support energy, water, and wastewater operations. According to a 2016 survey conducted by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), in partnership with the Smart Cities Council, 38.7 percent of communities have smart cities applications in active deployment in the energy sector, while 37.5 percent have smart cities applications in active deployment in the water and wastewater sectors. Additionally, nearly a third of communities - 29.7 percent - cited the water and wastewater sector as their top smart cities priority.

This report looks at smart cities technologies that communities are deploying across the energy and water sectors and examines challenges - some unique to these sectors and some that apply more broadly across smart cities applications.
