SmartKalea data in real time

SmartKalea has created a smart platform that provides follow-up and management indicators on the subsystems that are part of the project.

 

Data from a variety of sources are already being collected:

  • Electricity and water consumption through smart meters and platforms.
  • Number of people with smart counting sensors.
  • Information on motor and non-motor vehicle traffic.
  • Information on smart lighting across the city.
  • Environmental data measured by sensors.

New subsystems to be added.

Navigate the platform and find all the information on the systems whose data are collected in real time, comparisons and a series of key indicators from the city.

The platform includes interactive graphics. You can select filters to view only the information that you are interested in.

What is the city's sustainability level?

The city's sustainability level is measured on a daily basis. It indicates the condition of 'SmartKalea city' and is based on the use of power and water, air quality and ways of getting around town.

What do we measure?

Electricity consumption in households, shops, bars and restaurants that participate in SmartKalea is monitored using smart meters and platforms. The smart platform collects daily consumption data anonymously. The data collected are stored for later analysis.

Consumption monitoring can be used to improve power efficiency in households and establishments, since consumption can be followed up continuously and measures can be implemented accordingly.

Advice on how to save on your electric bill

  • Use appliances like the dishwasher or the washing machine when they are fully loaded. If you also use energy saving programs or cold cycles, it will reduce the amount of electricity they use.
  • Turn off the TV, computer and other appliances completely. Having them in stand-by mode is an unnecessary expense.
  • Unplug the computer and mobile chargers when the battery is charged. If you use a power strip, you will only have to switch off one switch to completely turn them off.

  • Check the amount of power you have contracted, if it is higher than what you use, it will mean paying more at the end of the month.
  • Wait for the food to cool down before you put it in the refrigerator. Putting food that is not cold into the fridge makes the fridge work harder, so it consumes more electricity to keep everything cold, and also shortens its lifespan.
  • If you are buying a new appliance, chose energy efficient appliances (A, A+, A++). Even though they cost more in the start, they’ll save you monthly on utility bills.

Advice on how to save on your water bill

  • Put a trash bin in the bathroom, it will stop you from using your toilet as a trash can.
  • Make sure you fully load the dishwasher and the washing machine and select the proper cycle.
  • If you have a garden or plants, water them in the morning or at night to avoid the water evaporation before it is absorbed.

  • Make sure your faucets do not leak and that they are closed properly.
  • Install a faucet aerator and switch to low flow shower heads. They mix water with air to give you more volume with less water usage.
  • Remember to turn the water off while you brush your teeth, shave or lather up.

Did you know...?

Sensors located in some streets of  the Old Town, Sancho el Sabio and Altza district measure pedestrian flow on the corners of Calle Mayor, Narrika, Puerto, San Jerónimo, 31 de Agosto, Fermín Calbetón, San Lorenzo , Sancho el Sabio and Paseo de Altza. The number of passers-by is tracked by a smart platform for analysis.

Keeping track of passers-by is useful to see the increase in human presence on special days or public holidays. Other aspects are also being monitored in the same districts, such as the traffic of vehicles in Sancho el Sabio street or the number of Euskotrain passengers in Altza.

What do we measure?

As part of SmartKalea project, we provided a smart street lighting system with LED lights, which are more efficient than conventional sodium-vapour lamps. Also, to slash energy costs, the system features motion sensors that light up when people walk by, and remain dim the rest of the time.

Did you know...?

The SmartKalea project conducted a research about the waste collected during the 2018-2019 period. The campaign was centred on a pilot experiment of six months focused on collect and analyse the waste dumped at 5 check points in the Altza district. This was supported by the local road cleaning services, Fomento Construcciones y Contratas SA (FCC), which compiled information twice a week (Monday and Friday) at the same hours during the 27 weeks of the campaign.  

The aim was to improve the environmental quality in Altza by reducing the volume of waste found in the district, and to establish measures that improved the environment and citizen well – being.  

The data collected by the road cleaning services was monitored in this section, distributed according to the type of waste, the day of the week, the week, and the street examined. The main conclusion was that the most numerous wastes were tobacco cigars, followed by pipes, napkins, and snack bags.
