Finnoon laaja-alainen energiasuunnitelma voitti Fiksu energia -kilpailun

29.4.2014 <http://tori.tekes.fi/2014/04/29/finnoon-laaja-alainen-energiasuunnitelma-voitti-fiksu-energia-kilpailun/

Tekesin järjestämään Fiksu energia -kilpailuun tuli 51 ehdotusta. Voiton vei Espoon kaupungin ja Fortumin ehdotus Finnoon alueen energiajärjestelmästä. Ehdotus on haasteellinen; 17 000 asukkaan uuden kaupunginosan energiankulutus halutaan puolittaa verrattuna normaaliin vastaavan alueen energiankäyttöön.

Finnooseen on suunnitteilla muun muassa matalalämpöinen lämmönjako ja kulutushuippujen leikkaaminen koko alueen energian etäohjauksella. Lisäksi energiaa tullaan ostamaan ja myymään molempiin suuntiin verkkojen kautta. Energiaverkot ovat myös avoimia uusille ratkaisuille. Ehdotuksen takana ovat Espoon kaupunki ja Fortum, mutta aluetta rakentamassa ja suunnittelemassa on useita muitakin kotimaisia yrityksiä. Yhtenä alueen toteuttajista Espoon Asunnot tulee rakentamaan alueelle vuokra-asuntoja, jotka hyödyntävät uusiutuvia energialähteitä.

Ensimmäisenä konkreettisena innovaationa Finnoossa toteutetaan energiakatuja eli alueen pääkatuja, jotka perustetaan maalämpöä keräävien energiapaalujen ja paalulaattojen varaan. Alueesta tulee merkittävä referenssi suomalaisyrityksille kuten Rautaruukki ja Uponor, sillä energiakatujen toimivuudesta on tällä hetkellä olemassa vain pienen mittakaavan kokeiluja Itävallassa. Finnoon tontinluovutus alkaa 2014, ja alue valmistuu pääosin 2030 mennessä.

Espoo on asettanut Finnoon uudelle kaupunginosalle tavoitteen toimia kestävän kehityksen esimerkkialueena. Espoo haluaa tukea kotimaisen teollisuuden vientitoimintaa niin, että se saa Finnoossa toteuttaa riittävän referenssiarvon omaavia cleantech-kohteita ja ratkaisuja. Tämän kilpailun voitto on osoitus, että olemme yhteistyökumppaneidemme kanssa löytäneet hyviä ratkaisuja ja matkalla oikeaan suuntaan energia-asiassa.  Tästä on hyvä jatkaa alueen kehittämistä asukkaille viihtyisäksi ja energiatehokkaaksi kotipaikaksi, projektinjohtaja Kimmo Leivo tiivistää.

Nokkela kaupunki: Anthony Townsend antaa selkeät ohjeet smart cityn kehittämiseen

Juha Kostiainen kirjoittaa blogissaan:

”Think globally, act locally –sanonnan Townsend kääntää muotoon Build locally, trade globally eli sovelluksia kannattaa kehittää järjellisessä mittakaavassa käyttäjien kanssa ja vasta sitten levittää niitä. Loppuun nostaisin vielä kaupunkien moniulotteiseen luonteeseen liittyvän näkökulman eli että älykkäiden kaupunkien kehittämisessä eri riitä, että tiimissä on erilaista osaamista vaan että ”designerien” täytyy kyetä ajattelemaan useamman osaamisalueen näkökulmasta (transdisciplinary). Ei siis riitä, että on tiimissä on monta smartia henkilöä, vaan näiden jokaisen pitää osata ajatella smartisti.”

Digile Rolling up the Sleeves 23.4.2014

LIVE 23.4.2014 08:30 – 15:30

“Everything that can be digitized will be digitized”, said Paul Krugman already in 2008. Digital service economy and digital society is surrounding us. It’s time to roll our sleeves, and take our part of this growth market to Finland.

One of the means to speed up this development is FORGE Service Lab, which is a place for designing, developing, implementing and experimenting digital services. FORGE’s aim is to create new digital services in Finland, for domestic and international markets. FORGE Service Lab is open to everybody who is interested in developing digital services, businesses, educational institutions, business development teams, the public sector – all industries and government sectors are included. It’s a joint effort with DIGILE, CSC and Kainuun Etu, and the Ministry of Transport and Communications is taking part in the ramp-up funding of it.

Another way to accelerate the digitalisation of the society is the national data exchange layer, to which Finland is committed to. Implemented in close co-operation with Estonia, the layer is based on the concept and principles of the X-road solution. The X-Road data exchange layer is a technical and organisational environment that allows organising secure web-based data exchange between the information systems of the state.

Now it’s time join new kinds of ecosystems, as they enable new service architectures where public and private sector are working together i.e. companies, cities, start-ups, and municipalities can build up services which go over silos that are created by the limitations of analogical world and which provide true benefit for citizens.

Come to join the discussion and the making of digital service society. We need to speed up in order to guarantee that Finland will be in the forefront in the utilization of digital growth. The day is also for celebrating the opening of FORGE Service Lab.

The keynote of the day is given by Krista Kiuru, Minister of Communications (confirmed April 8), and other guest-speakers come from Suunto, Zalando (GER), JAMK, CSC-IT Center for Science, CGI, Codento, Cybernetica (EST), Kuntien Tiera, Umbrella, Haltu, Säästöpankkikeskus, Kainuun Etu and Ministry of Finance!

The link to the program is found on the right side of this page.

This seminar is free of charge. If you have registered but cannot attend, please inform us about your cancellation by April 16 latest by e-mail (info@digile.fi) – to avoid the no-show fee of 100 € + VAT.

Welcome and let’s wrap our sleeves!

ISJ Special Issue on Smart Cities

Dear all,

We were inspired by the World Bank Smart City Guidebook initiative and related session during the European Network of Living labs summer school in Manchester*, therefore, together with EnoLL Laurea promoted researchers and practitioners to write about Smart Cities and related issues (e.g. eHealth or other eServices and solutions), and surprisingly many friends responded.

We are now proud to introduce the results to you. The ISJ special issue on Smart Cities has been published. You can find the whole publication behind this link http://www.laurea.fi/en/isj/latest_issue/Pages/default.aspx . The ENoLL Guidebook together with the World Bank will follow later this year.

Articles introducing Uusimaa and Oulu smart city cases and related research will support us when promoting our own cities and smart solutions in Brussels and elsewhere. Also, trough the ISJ Smart Cities publication we get a chance to learn from others and we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Based on cities’ challenges, it is our joint aim to improve services for citizens in a cooperative manner. Whenever useful we aim to improve these services through fruitful collaboration with international partners. Given that Finland lives from export, joint international RDI projects are economical means to help Finnish companies to gain access into and benefit from the European and global markets.

”With this special issue on Smart Cities Laurea, together with the European Network of Livingiabs (ENoLL) wants to support those developing their cities and regions or serving their citizens, public, organizations and firms both in Europe and elsewhere. Moreover the purpose of this ISJ number is to provide reference material for the Smart City Guidebook and extended material for the Guidebook users. The Guidebook will be published in 2014 by the World Bank and ENoLL. The contributions in this unrefereed special issue stem from both academics and practitioners in companies and public organizations both within and outside the ENoLL community.”

With best regards

Guest Editor Tuija Hirvikoski
Director at Laurea

Next autumn, the Prime Minister’s Office and its cooperation partners will organise a major event focusing on open data and its uses. The “Open Finland 2014” event will be held in Wanha Satama, Helsinki, on 15–16 September.

Open Finland 2014 is to present the opportunities that open data provides for citizens and organisations, businesses, sciences, research, learning and for better decisions and smoothly running central and local government administration.

The event will seek answers to the following question: ”Why is it important to have and use open data?” The event will also provide concrete examples and tools in answer to the question: ”How can we make use of open data?”

By opening up data resources, we can increase transparency and the openness of activities. Open data is freely available, reusable, refinable and distributable.

The event supports the objectives of the Government Report on the Future, which focuses on well-being based on sustainable growth. The Finnish society provides countless opportunities for setting up open data businesses and creating crowdsourcing-based services. The public sector can boost sustainable development through the open-minded promotion of agile and experimental activities.

The main partners of the Prime Minister’s Office in the organisation of the event: Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Education and Culture, Ministry of Employment and the Economy, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of the Environment, Aalto University, Centre for Open Source Software (COSS), open ministry, Forum Virium Helsinki, Finnish National Archives, National Land Survey of Finland, Open Knowledge Finland, Sitra, Finnish Youth Co-operation – Allianssi, Tekes, Consultative Committee for Public Information and Finnish Information Society Development Centre – Tieke. The event is produced by Tapahtumantekijät.

Opportunities and success stories

The event will bring together businesses, civil society organisations, researchers, administration and decision-makers. The participants will be challenged to take up open data, explore crowdsourcing and promote openness and opportunities for applying open data. The aim of the event is to gain exposure to the opportunities provided by the use of open data, share Finnish success stories and create new open data opportunities. The programme will consist of international and national addresses, discussions, open workshops and videos about expertise, challenges and opportunities.

The exhibition stands will provide information on open data from all sectors of society. Through the event website, avoinsuomi2014.fi, you may propose success stories from Finland to be taken up in the addresses, videos and stands.

Registration will begin at the end of April via the event website. The programme will be published in May and updated between June and August after the themes of the addresses and exhibition stands have been confirmed.
