Madrid (Spain), Paris (France) – June nine, 2021

Atos joins AI4Cities, a 3-year EU-funded job which aims to assist six European cities and regions accelerate their transition in direction of carbon neutrality. This contains: Helsinki (Finland), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark), Paris Area (France), Stravanger (Norway) and Tallin (Estonia). The artificial intelligence (AI) remedies will in the long run add to the reduction of CO2 in the spots of mobility and strength, two domains liable for 82% of all greenhouse fuel emissions in European cities.

Atos has been picked for the Stage one of AI4Cities: the pre-professional procurement (PCP) process that challenges engineering providers in the six cities and regions to structure, employ and examination innovative artificial intelligence remedies encouraging them to modernize community sector solutions and address societal vital challenges. The picked providers will, with artificial intelligence: evaluate journey designs to structure much more economical routes and schedules, contributing to a a great deal smaller sized environmental footprint improve the use of electric vehicle charging destinations by providing recommendations based mostly on artificial intelligence and lessen the time to consider, plan and endorse investments (e.g. for creating renovation). In addition, providers will do the job to improve the use and strength efficiency in structures and optimize the use of neighborhood renewable electrical energy through demand administration, using structures as distributed thermal strength storage, among the other remedies. The whole funding for this job, which will be divided among the the picked suppliers in the course of the total PCP process, is 4.6 million euros.

Atos will be liable for creating solutions through the alternative termed “AI4GreenBuildings” which makes use of artificial intelligence to make improvements to the strength efficiency of structures and its influence in phrases of greenhouse fuel emissions, through a manage suite that displays the creating flexible strength offer (i.e. electrical energy, heating , ventilation, air conditioning, h2o) and use in structures. In parallel, the alternative will assist municipal choice-makers to make smarter and much more productive streamlined insurance policies. The alternative will also elevate citizen consciousness on how their actions can influence strength use and CO2 emissions.

AI4GreenBuildings” proposes an innovative alternative to empower cities and their citizens, enabling them to manage all the strength sources of structures, many thanks to an innovative Details and Interaction Know-how (ICT) platform, that permits interoperability and integration of gadgets (e.g. meters, sensors, etcetera.) for economical generation, storage and use administration particularly made for homes, structures, and even overall neighborhoods and communities. Its open up, normal, and flexible structure opens the door to long term scalability, replicability, collaboration, and integration of exterior communities in a uncomplicated way.

Atos will use equipment mastering (ML) designs to exploit the gathered knowledge and to make AI-driven solutions to improve strength useful resource administration and therefore lessen all round CO2 emissions.

We are quite very pleased to do the job on encouraging provide a sustainable modern society withAI4Cities, which is the ideal framework to examination Atos’s most innovative remedies for improving strength efficiency in cities, with the needed technological scope and the sufficient geographic dimension to get impactful and seen outcomes in many major cities of Europe”, said Javier Valiño, Head of the Electrical power, Climate and Decarbonization Device of the R&D division of Atos Iberia.

Atos has not long ago confirmed its position as the leader of decarbonized and secure electronic, pushed by its ambition to reach web-zero by 2028 and, by providing customers with the launch of the most comprehensive, conclude-to-conclude decarbonization portfolio on the market place: Url.

AI4cities is built up of many multidisciplinary partners from nations around the world these types of as France, the Netherlands, Estonia, Denmark, Norway and Spain among the some others.
