Accumulated answers to questions from the webinar
Q: Cases and solutions
A: A: It is not a requirement that companies must use the proposed cases as a starting point. It is possible to find other case suggestions on the AI4Cities website or find something completely different as long as it is related to energy or mobility and reduce CO2 emissions. However, it is not possible to discuss various proposals with Copenhagen in advance, even if it is to qualify for the opportunities, and in such cases we encourage companies to participate in hackaton in September. At the same time, solution providers will be selected based on fulfillment of selection criteria, not according to their geographical location, and all participants will be supported at all stages with feedback and access to relevant data

Q: Existing AI solutions
A: The project is about innovation and therefore existing solutions, also well-documented, have no interest. However, companies are welcome to inform about such solutions as well as they are welcome to further develop these so that they achieve an innovative effect that supports one of the challenges of AI4Cities.

Q: Access to data
A: All participating companies will have access to relevant publicly owned data.

Q: Property Monitoring
A: Copenhagen Property on average use approximatly 130 KWh / m2 electricity and heat per year. The consumption is visualized in the municipality's Energy Monitoring System (EMS) where the energy consumption for the entire municipality's property portfolio is monitored. This, as well as CTS and Buliding Management Systems (BMS), are consulted if system failures are reported, but data is not yet used predictively.

Q: District Cooling
A: Greater Copenhagen Utility supplies cooling to Copenhagen, but this is rarely used in public buildings.
