The term education system generally refers to public schooling, not private schooling, and more commonly to kindergarten through high school programs. Schools or school districts are typically the smallest recognized form of "Education System" and countries are the largest. States are also considered to have education systems.

Ground Up Diversity

Changing education through talks, writing, advising, and teaching.

Social Networking

Many educators believe this is the route to engaging students in learning all the basic skills they need.

Talking Education

Educators believe using talking or videos to review lessons and teach concepts helps students learn and retain more.

Lesson Study

Lesson study applies to style of teaching. Conceptually, lesson study promotes the idea that teachers constantly improve and change their style of teaching based on students’ performance and reaction to it.

Constructive Struggling

The student shouldn’t be embarrassed about failing the first time around, not even the second or third time. The instructor should actually encourage students to learn from that failure.

Introduction

Infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy. The sector is highly responsible for propelling India’s overall development and enjoys intense focus from Government for initiating policies that would ensure time-bound creation of world class infrastructure in the country. Infrastructure sector includes power, bridges, dams, roads and urban infrastructure development. In 2016, India jumped 19 places in World Bank's Logistics Performance Index (LPI) 2016, to rank 35th amongst 160 countries.

  • Communication. Telecommunication towers.
  • Energy. City gas distribution. Electricity Distribution
  • Social and Commercial Infrastructure. Cold Chain. Common infrastructure for industrial parks, SEZ.
  • Transport. Airports. Inland waterways
  • Water Sanitation. Irrigation (dams, channels, embankments)

Infrastructure, water resources and environment are the three domains of utmost importance for the mankind. The optimum combination of these domains set a foundation for the smart cities, which is among the best known mission project of Government of India (GOI). Start-ups in these domains have opportunities to develop smart materials, IT enabled services such as smart transport and water system networks, and green technologies for better use of resources (water, energy and air).

Infrastructure, being a key driver for Indian economy, has received significant investment (from foreign and domestic investors) in the tune of over US$ 24.3 billion in last decade. This provides the ample opportunities for innovative developments. Among the key sectors includes sustainable and environment-friendly public transport solutions, urban habitat models among several others.

Growing population and skewed water availability requires smart and sustainable solutions for increasing water demands. Beside water can be used for navigation purposes. In order to address optimize the use of available water resources, the GOI have launched several schemes such as Ganga rejuvenation, Interlinking of rivers, Jal kranti abhiyan etc. These holistic and inter-disciplinary approaches provide abundant opportunities for smart ideas and concept.

Air pollution, water pollution and solid waste management are three core environmental problems that India is facing today. These problems are expected to aggravate, due to socio-economic growth of the Indians and the rapid industrialization of the country. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a biggest goal of the GOI, is also an environment protection initiative. Green platform, a national level GIS based dynamic data base on 111 environmental parameters are exemplary initiative from GOI. With green-technology being the worldwide phenomena, a scope of start-up in this field can extend far beyond Indian borders.

The conference aims at identifying idea that can have profound impact of betterment of current state of infrastructure, water resources and environment.

Energy, Smart and Green Technology

Pen Down Your Ideas

Energy is the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions globally and many cities already account for three quarters of energy consumption and 82% of CO2 emissions. However, as renewables penetration grows, smaller generation technologies continue to reduce in cost and smaller storage technologies mature, hence there is an opportunity for cities to reap the social and environmental benefits that a distributed energy model can offer them, while also meeting their climate change objectives and becoming more resilient. We need to contribute and achieve the set targets by developing future frameworks and plans and help deliver innovative technological solutions that provide a systematic approach.

As well as improving performance, reliability and controllability, moving to a smarter grid will reduce emissions by allowing greater integration of renewables and more efficient use of the energy they produce, integration of smart vehicles which can act as storage devices to reduce transmission losses and promote cleaner transport and the introduction of demand response mechanisms to reduce demand. This transformation will require a stepped approach with consideration for the built environment and societal structures that already exist. While long-term planning is crucial, it must include identification and prioritization of the steps which need to be taken from now to the future to realize success.

Achieving a Smart Green City requires significant collaboration across all stakeholders. End-users of services must buy-in to concepts for a successful long term outcome. New innovative technology will need to be open source for easy connectivity to other systems and providers will need to prove it is robust. While each city’s approach will be slightly different, national and global collaboration are vital to develop standards and best practices.

The topics which may be covered under smart and green energy technology (but not limited to):

Green Energy, Green Technologies, Energy-efficient Technologies, Green/Clean Technologies in Industry & Business Sectors, Sustainable Bio-energy Issues, Smart Grids, Smart Cities, Smart Textiles, Micro-grids, Nano-grids, IoT programming toolkits and frameworks, Smart city theory modeling and simulation, Policies for smart urban design , Socio-technical challenges in smart city development, Enablers and drivers for smart cities, Public private partnership (3P) model for smart city, Energy efficiency for smart cities, Management and operation of the smart city, Smart people and communities, and sustainable transport system, Cloud solutions for smart cities, Role of big data analysis in smart city, Smart and green building technologies, Smart solutions for special needs people, Smart manufacturing and logistics, Efficient emergency responses, Security and public safety in smart cities, Future challenges in smart cities.

Energy

Publicly available official energy data is a crucial input to policy formulation, research, modelling and other analytical work, and business decisions. Such data can also make the sector more accessible to the general public.

Energy data in India comes from disparate sources. The energy sector is governed by multiple ministries within the central government covering the sub-sectors of coal, petroleum and natural gas, electricity, renewable energy and atomic energy. In addition, certain parts of the sector, particularly electricity which is a concurrent subject under the Indian constitution, are governed by states. Data from these multiple sources needs to be collated, resolved for consistency and presented in accessible and uniform formats. Such an effort entails harmonisation of data definitions, terminology and formats, and involves regular interactions between multiple data agencies. Data thus collated needs to be disseminated through user-friendly visualisations and in machine-friendly formats.
