Enevo and STS partnership delivers Smart Waste Management in Sunshine Coast Smart City Framework

Enevo has partnered with STS to help Australian councils and cities benefit from the efficiency gains that Enevo’s products and services deliver to waste management.

Enevo, a leader in smart waste management, has announced that its project under the Smart City Framework delivered with Brisbane-based partner Smarter Technology Solutions (STS) is moving to wider implementation after a successful initial deployment.

As part of a wide ranging Smart City Framework, 13 municipal service areas including waste management were targeted as focus areas for cutting edge Smart City technology solutions designed to increase efficiency and quality of life. Australia has shown increased commitment and focus on harnessing the benefits of technologies to improve cities with the recent launch of the National Smart Cities Plan in April 2016.

The Enevo waste management solution brings together waste container monitoring, data analytics and fill-level forecasting. Enevo wireless sensors monitor the fill level of the waste containers, transmitting the information to the company’s cloud servers. This data is combined with historical information to build trends.

Greg Howard, Australia and NZ Manager, Enevo, commented “STS is passionate about the benefits Enevo’s solutions provide and they have been active with the Brisbane Internet of Things (IoT) community. The Sunshine Coast Council is a great example of where STS local engagement and support has helped a project grow from pilot to wider deployment as the Enevo solution starts to clearly demonstrate the efficiency gains that are possible. Other councils in Queensland and NSW are now at various stages of investigating how Enevo’s smart technology and predictive analytic platform can deliver demonstrable waste management savings.”

Danielle Story, Chief Innovation Officer, STS, said “Our customers are delighted with Enevo. They now have insight into their waste systems that they’ve never had. Once logged into the Enevo dashboard, they can see waste trends, identify where the waste provider may have missed a collection and take action on bins approaching overflow before it happens. This contributes to a reduced environmental impact and ultimately the efficiency of waste services provisioning.”
