IoT North - UK Homes: Creating a healthier, more sustainable future with IoT

Feb 8, 2022 · Edinburgh, United Kingdom

IoT North Community meetup presents Jessica Kuznia on IoT for housing

The UK has some of the oldest properties in Europe and they accounts for almost 20% of our national carbon emissions. With social housing alone accounting for almost half of that emission rate. The NHS is also estimating that it’s currently spending around £2.5 billion a year treating people for illnesses that are caused by the poor condition of their homes, such as mould, damp and excess cold.

In the last few years the housing sector have started to realise the power of IoT and its ability to solve some of the long standing issues affecting our aging homes. However, as a sector they've been long underserved by cumbersome legacy IT and a lack of sector expertise, making digital transformation a difficult and slow process.

How can we as technologists enable them overcome the barriers to IoT adoption, to help create a greener, healthier society for us all?

Agenda:

Case studies: IoT in the housing sector
What are the barriers to adoption?
What's next: The future of IoT in housing
