Responsible Consumption & Production

Worldwide, resource consumption is rapidly on the rise. Increasing demand for natural resources is challenging the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. SDG 12 calls for the protection of natural resources, reduction in waste and practices for sustainable consumption throughout the world’s economies. Tech for social good solutions from the LoRaWAN® ecosystem in support of this global goal can be found below.

Lasting Smart Water Meters

While an individual smart water meter installed in the field is expected to have a minimum lifetime of 10-15 years (depending on the smart functionalities, defined communication period and the battery capacity used in the meter design), the technology used for communication in a smart water meter should have at least 20 years estimated validity, for an ideal "responsible consumption & production" in this industry. it is estimated that LoRaWAN will be the longest lasting technology in today's conditions (fulfilling requirements of water utilities and consumers).

Water Leakage Detection

When it comes to water damage, there is no doubt that the cost to owners and insurers can be crippling for citizens throughout the world.Fortunately, proactive, preventive measures that utilize leading IoT technologies are now available iioote’s newest preventative solution, SenseIoT, utilizes LoRaWAN-enabled temperature and humidity sensors, MultiTech LoRaWAN gateways and the SenseIoT sensor-to-platform system, which detects and addresses water leaks in private buildings before damage can occur. A LoRaWAN network connects sensors to the backend where data is analyzed, visualized and acted upon.

Invasive Species Detection

Agrint has developed a low-cost and low-energy IoT (Internet of Things) system which can transmit early detection notifications about infestation of a tree. The “IOtree” solution can be used to protect date palms, ornamental palms, oil palms, and coconut palms. This allows farmers to increase the efficiency of pesticide management and save trees from damage, which eliminates costly replacement expenses.

Reducing Energy Consumption

At Maidstone Hospital, a leading hospital in the South East of England, providing general hospital and specialist complex care services to over 600,000 patients just wasn’t enough. Armed with an additional initiative to reduce its carbon footprint by 28% (by 2020 from a 2013 baseline) and cognizant of the importance and cost-saving potential of energy conservation, Maidstone set forth to drastically reduce its energy consumption. After exploring numerous options, including using metering which transmits data using the cellular mobile phone network (which ultimately would be too expensive and only offered data from the past day) the hospital decided to incorporate a solution that leverages the latest long range, low power wireless alternative, LoRaWAN®. Pivotal to the success of the enLink’s solution was the MultiTech Conduit®, a configurable, manageable, and scalable communications gateway for industrial IoT applications.

KLAX - The Optical Readout Device for Electricity Metering

Affordable and clean energy is often supplied from several sources and needs to be monitored regularly. With the KLAX, for example, the individual billing of solar power systems of multi-party houses is realised. The Modbus version of the KLAX is suitable for use in the infrastructure of energy suppliers, for example to increase the transparency in the networks or to monitor industrial plants.Responsible consumption & production requires transparency of resources, especially with regard to electricity consumption. By monitoring in e.g. 15min intervals, energy wasters can easily be found by private users as well as in production. One of the price issues for the climate action is energy, renewable energies are often subject to fluctuations in grid performance. Monitoring electricity can be part of a solution that combines renewable energy and grid security.
