The IOT Solutions World Congress, held in Barcelona last October, is the world’s leading event of Internet of Things solutions applied to industry. In this latest edition the IOTSWC promotes sustainability and it even calculates and offsets its carbon footprint with Clean CO2.
The calculation included the emissions generated by the energy consumption of the facilities, the catering that was served, the materials delivered to the attendees, the communication materials used and the trips and overnight stays of the speakers.
A collaboration agreement has been established with the Andra Pradesh project, which is a wind energy project in India. The project activity installs and operates Suzlon turbines for a total installed capacity of 4.2 MW.
The project activity contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the use of renewable resources (wind energy) for the generation of energy that would otherwise have been generated using grid mixing plants, dominated by thermal power plants based on fossil fuels. The energy generated is sold to the national network. An annual average of 8,462 MWh of renewable energy is generated, which allows an emission’s reduction of 8,152 tCO2e per year.
