Awarding of the Swisscom IoT Climate Award
The following savings are possible depending on the area in question. If you have one of these figures, you can use it to register for the IoT for Climate Award.
Total number of savings (value in relation to quality) / Total number of sensors in operation in 2019
Swisscom will award the innovative character of the solution: Have new hardware or software solutions been developed? Have new measuring techniques been developed? Were efforts made to research or identify new applications?
As a company, how do you rate your project in terms of customer experience? What advantage does your solution provide for the customer? How easy is the solution to use? Is the solution self-explanatory?
IoT can help save CO2 in many different ways. Here are some of the most exciting possibilities:
The automated transmission of consumption data via an IoT connection from intelligent meters (smart meters) eliminates the need for annual meter reading at the end consumer. This means the trips to read meters can be dispensed with.
Relates to the remote monitoring of fill levels (e.g. waste bins, filters, silos, etc.) or animals (e.g. farm animals such as cows or sheep) using sensors and the transmission thereof via a Swisscom IoT connection. The savings result from the reduction in the number of control or service runs.
Relates to the possibility of remote maintenance to rectify faults or improve systems settings (e.g. heaters). This IoT application reduces service trips in relation to faults or increases the energy efficiency of the systems.
Managing, planning, controlling and monitoring vehicle fleets using IoT enables logistics and transport companies to optimise the routes to be travelled and the rolling stock in use. The savings are achieved by reducing the number of kilometres travelled by vehicles thanks to optimised routes, by reducing the number of vehicles required and providing information and feedback on driving style and vehicle efficiency.
The following application form is sufficient for the application for the Swisscom IoT for climate award.
From all of the projects entered, three will be awarded the Swisscom IoT Climate Award. They will each receive a Green IoT Award, designed on a wooden board. They will also win a cash amount, which will be paid from the Swisscom Energy Efficiency Fund. The winner will receive CHF 10,000, second and third place will receive CHF 7,000 and 3,000 respectively.
