Vancouver, Cisco, Pulse Energy ink green technology contract

Posted by Rob Lewis

The city of Vancouver, Cisco and Pulse Energy announced yesterday at the Shanghai World Expo a collaborative relationship designed to accelerate the development of Vancouver's green-energy goals.

The effort with Cisco and Pulse Energy is the latest in Vancouver's ongoing initiatives to showcase the city as an economic hub for the advancement of clean technology, develop a network of specialised partners, and improve energy efficiency and management.

Beginning in 2010, the three parties will work to advance Vancouver's green-energy vision by implementing technologies for building-energy management, home-energy management, urban carbon-footprint reduction and data center efficiency.

Today's agreement was signed at the Shanghai Expo by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, David Helliwell, the CEO of Vancouver-based Pulse Energy, and Cisco. Both the city of Vancouver and Cisco have Expo pavilions, and a team of Vancouver businesses in the green and creative sectors have joined the mayor there for a series of business sessions around the celebration of Vancouver Green Capital Day.

Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world. In February 2009, Robertson launched the Greenest City initiative with a goal of making Vancouver the greenest city in the world by 2020.
