Can the 'Internet of Things' Be Smart and Green? | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

The Internet of Things (IoT) is making everything it touches smarter – smart devices, smart cars and smart cities

Can IoT Be Wicked Smart and Wicked Green?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is making everything it touches smarter - smart devices, smart cars and smart cities. And lucky us, we're just beginning to reap the benefits as we work toward a networked society. However, this technology-driven innovation is impacting more than just individuals. The IoT has an environmental impact as well, which brings us to the theme of this month's #IoTuesday Twitter chat.

The ability to remove inefficiencies through connected objects is driving change throughout every sector, including waste management. BigBelly Solar, located just outside of Boston, is transforming the way organizations tackle public waste and recycling, allowing businesses to save time, fuel and money while reducing their carbon footprints. The company's Smart Waste & Recycling System is environmentally friendly and helps municipalities take another step on the path toward becoming truly smart cities.

Brian Phillips, BigBelly's executive vice president of strategic planning and marketing, will be joining us this month to co-host our #IoTuesday chat. Brian will help us explore some of the IoT technologies used in smart cities, the drivers contributing to IoT's positive environmental impact and the best practices for effectively monetizing environmentally friendly business models.

How do you join?
Follow @MetraTech on Twitter and join our chat on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT using the #IoTuesday hashtag.
