GeoGeo Sweeps AGI Award at Smart Energy Conference

A presentation given by founder Paul Georgie has been voted favourite at the Smart Energy Conference that took place back in February.  The accolade means that Paul’s work is once again shortlisted for the Annual AGI Awards for Geospatial Excellence for Best Paper, with the overall winner announced and presented at the Annual Awards Ceremony on the 25th November 2015 at the Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth.

Focusing on the citizens’ perspective of low carbon living, Paul took aim at the current use of geospatial data by governments, organisations and communities in enabling this transition, as well as dishing out some hard truths along the way. 

Paul's insight into the "the good, the bad, and the ugly" when it came to smart energy mapping platforms obviously went down a treat, and we can only look forward to the "Carto-Clanger Awards" in 2016.

“Hosted by AGI Scotland in partnership with the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, we focused on the security of future energy demands and the tools. Sustainable supply requires a new approach. The grid itself needs to become smart, in addition to new technology managing demand. Understanding the needs of the citizen alongside environmental and policy challenges are key. All are highly dependent on a detailed geospatial understanding.”
