Government and local authorities globally are coming under increasing legislative pressure to better monitor air quality, and to deploy and actively manage ‘clean air zones’ across our cities. By 2050 a huge populations shift will have resulted in 70% of the world’s populations living in urban areas. This seismic shift is driving Smart City initiatives globally. 44% of UK councils currently do not have fit-for-purpose air and pollution monitoring capabilities (The Independent). With a more stringent government Air Quality Plan about to come into force, councils face significant fines if they are not compliant.
At EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class, South 2021 Adrian Sutton, CEO at Welsh tech company Vortex IoT, delivered a thought-provoking view of the power of hyper-local data in the implementation of air quality interventions. Using the case study of a hyper-local deployment in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, he highlighted how integration with other data sets and traffic enforcement can lead to win-win situations for residents and the council alike, supporting their climate emergency declaration and decarbonisation goals.
