With more than half the world’s population living in urban centers, city governments are looking for ways to provide adequate energy and water services, through efficient and cost effective services.. Microsoft CityNext helps governments, businesses, and citizens design energy-efficient solutions that improve the quality of life and save money now and in the future.

Cities that take advantage of Microsoft technologies and partner solutions are improving operations and reducing consumption by using software to collect and analyze both real-time and historical data from a wide range of sources, including renewable energy systems. The information can be used to cut power costs, improve forecasting, and detect impending equipment failures. For instance, CityNext solutions can and improve water conservation and quality and cut energy costs by reducing pumping. Other examples include smart-grid solutions that help utilities optimize distribution networks by integrating real-time data from commercial and government facilities. In addition, social media tools and online services help engage citizens and improve satisfaction through self-service conservation programs and real-time alerts.

Microsoft CityNext offers innovative, sustainable solutions that help cities reduce energy costs, simplify maintenance, and grow into a greener future.

Today, cities are adopting new approaches to conservation and energy consumption as well as establishing new regulations for their largest commercial and industrial energy consumers. With smart grid and demand-side solutions from Microsoft and its partners, cities can:

  • Meet customer demand and environmental goals and requirements by analyzing data and optimizing distribution networks.
  • Integrate real-time energy consumption data from commercial and government facilities.
  • Cut power costs and improve forecasting.
  • Enable utilities to work more closely with their customers.

The integration and correlation of real-time water and power data can reduce power cost by more than 5 percent, improve water conservation and quality, and cut maintenance and support costs. With water and waste solutions based on technology from Microsoft and its partners, cities can:

  • Reduce water consumption.
  • Streamline infrastructure maintenance by improving insight into data, including historical information.
  • Cut energy costs by reducing pumping.
  • Improve citizen satisfaction through self-service conservation programs and real-time alerts.

Software is now being used by cities to aggressively manage energy across commercial and industrial buildings and operations. With scalable solutions from Microsoft and its partners, you can:

  • Aggregate information from a wide range of applications and data sources, including renewable energy systems.
  • Analyze data to gain actionable information and effectively adjust systems.
  • Detect pending equipment failures.
  • Optimize operations, including maintenance schedules, to improve profitability.
