Microsoft Brings Smart Buildings to Seattle; and Residents in the French town of Issy-les-Moulineaux Trim Energy Use by 20 Percent When Given Real-Time Consumption Data

I want to highlight a couple stories that highlight how the cloud and big data are being used to drive energy efficiency and provide solutions to global energy challenges.

The first is the work we are doing with the city of Seattle in driving energy efficiency at city scale.






The second is the French town of Issy-les-Moulineaux, near Paris where we are working on a demonstration project aimed at optimizing energy usage at the local level by empowering residents with data about their energy consumption so that they will be incentivized to change their energy consumption habits. 


Enjoy! – Jon C. Arnold
