Brunei partners with IBM to save energy

IBM1IT giant IBM on June 25 announced that it joined forces with Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) “to explore smarter ways to conserve and consume energy in the country.” Using data analyses, researchers want to design smarter energy solutions for homes, communities and grids in Brunei.

IBM said in a statement that it will collaborate with UBD to better understand energy usage and supply in buildings to enable efficient allocation of resources and distribution of power. UBD and IBM also intend to explore how a variety of long-term and dynamic factors affect energy consumption patterns.

The research will play a vital role in capacity and skills development of Bruneians, to support Brunei’s “Vision 2035” of a dynamic and knowledge-driven natural resources-based economy, said IBM.

The collaboration builds upon the ongoing relationship between IBM Research and UBD which has seen the two partners engaged in modeling research involving weather modeling, climate modeling, flood forecasting, crop modeling and renewable energy modeling in the region.

“Our collaboration with UBD has already witnessed significant progress in identifying some of Brunei’s natural resource modeling challenges, and we expect the relationship to continue to develop new insights into how Brunei can use energy more efficiently,” said Ramesh Gopinath, director, IBM Research – India.

“By combining education and innovation, UBD can help strengthen the local infrastructure, maintain a sustainable economy and improve quality of life,” he added.
