According to a United Nations report: World Urbanization Prospects: The 2011 Revision, “the world population is expected to be 67 per cent urban in 2050.” As the trend of urban growth continues, cities are faced with aging and overtaxed infrastructure and systems and are looking for ‘smart’ clean tech ideas to help solve future challenges. Sensus is one company working on these issues.
With headquarters in the Triangle and over 100 years in business, Sensus is a global leader in utility infrastructure systems and resource conservation with operations and service facilities on five continents. Sensus provides ‘smart’ products and solutions in advanced measurement, data collection, analysis and control capabilities that help customers improve efficiency while reducing their environmental impact.
Matt Zufto, executive vice president of corporate strategy and business development at Sensus, talks about the emergence of “smart cities” and the value for a clean technology company like Sensus to be located in the Research Triangle – the center of the clean tech industry.
