With a population boom anticipated across municipalities in Canada, key infrastructure like water treatment plants will be under increased pressures. Knowing that only 0.3% of global water resources can be used as clean drinking water, technologies like IoT will play a critical role in replacing outdated systems and meeting the need for clean water sources. Hear from industry experts about who is currently using IoT for wastewater management, how public services can modernize for the future, and why the adoption of IoT solutions is essential for Canada’s ambitions to be a leader in the fight against climate change.
This virtual roundtable is the first in a 3-part series, called “Acting for a Net Zero Future – Now” about the role of technology, innovation, collaboration and the need for ambitious leadership in the race to zero emissions. Series sponsored by Schneider Electric.

COVID-19 is affecting everything, including energy usage. Work-from-home practices driven by the pandemic are dramatically increasing energy demand and consumption in our homes, and many of these changes are here to stay. To resist the worst climate impacts, we must limit temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by halving GHG emissions by 2030 and hitting net-zero emissions by 2050.
Moving forward, homes are expected to be the single largest consumer of electricity and one of the biggest contributors to carbon-dioxide emissions. Our homes must not only be more energy efficient, but also have more personalized spaces with uninterrupted power. Measuring home energy consumption in real time is no longer a nice to have, it is a need to have. Smart home systems bring sustainability, privacy, security, flexibility, energy efficiency and comfort to all living spaces. Join us to hear solutions to all of these challenges and get a glimpse of what the homes of the future look like.
This the 2nd in a 3-part series called “Acting for a Net Zero Future – Now” about the role of technology, innovation, collaboration and the need for ambitious leadership in the race to zero emissions. Series sponsored by Schneider Electric.
