Plans are underway to build a smart city powered by hydrogen storage and Aritificial Intelligence (AI).
The University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney is pursuing new partnerships to realise the potential of smart cities and hybrid energy storage systems to power them.
The university will lead Australia’s first fully integrated smart city trial in partnership with Providence Asset Group (PAG) and Tamworth City Council, in a deal announced this week.
The trial will be the first based on Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and include applications across transport, energy, health, telecommunications and other community services. Previous trials have incorporated only energy systems and are based on older technology on individual user cases instead of an integrated approach.
