Date: 11 – 13 March 2015
Frequency: Annual
Organizer: Via Expo
Venue: Sofia, Inter Expo Center
 
The focus of ‘Smart Cities’ Exhibition and Conference will be on intelligent transport, building management and automation, ICT technology implementation in the overall urban activity.

Today, 80 % of the Europeans live in cities. They occupy only about 2% of the land area, but they consume 75% of resources and emit 80% CO2. It is really important to change the way we consume and produce.  The intelligent vision of the cities can be a reality through wider introduction of advanced solutions. ‘Smart Cities’ will identify the path towards the sustainable urban development in South-East Europe.

It will attract representatives of institutions, municipalities, branch organizations, private companies, providing interactivity and networking between them.

We kindly invite you to become a part of ‘Smart Cities’ - an excellent opportunity to showcase your products, to start new joint business projects, to share your  experience.

Listen Up: Combining Solar and Storage for Commercial Buildings

Homes are billed for electricity based on the amount of energy they consume (measured in kwh). But commercial facilities often get an additional charge for the peak amount of power they consume during each month (measured in kw). These demand charges are designed to compensate the utility for the peak generating capacity that they must provide when large motors, air conditioners and other commercial processes are started up (power draw from motors is highest when the motors start).
