CloudOpting Enters Final Year as Applications Prepare to Launch
Since 2014 Corby has been a key demonstrator location for the €6.5million European ‘CloudOpting’ project, alongside cities including Barcelona and Turin. Electric Corby are leading the project here in Corby, which is bringing over €350,000 into the local economy to support Corby’s continued growth.
Electric Corby is playing a significant role within the CloudOpting project, delivering 3 experiments (applications). These apps are:
- An Energy Consumption and Generation Dashboard that will aid organisations to reduce their energy consumption through monitoring, tracking and analysing their energy consumption data.
- A Northamptonshire Bus Portal, which will use live data to help bus companies and the Northamptonshire County Council to enhance their overall services as well as assist passengers with planning schedules and reduce waiting times.
- A Business Portal for local businesses in Corby to communicate and exchange information, allowing them to network, grow, and gain access to business support programmes.
Nick Bolton, Co-Founder of Electric Corby, commented “The involvement of Corby in this pan-European project is another demonstration of the towns future focused approach to growth. Innovation and collaboration play a key role in economic success and working with our colleagues from across the EU is a valuable way to ensure Corby continues to deliver on its ambitious growth plan”
As CloudOpting is entering its final year this March, Electric Corby will be supporting the piloting of the Northamptonshire Bus Portal, which will be released in the coming weeks.
