Development of Data Utilities and Data Infrastructure


Smart and Connected Communities

Mr. Bromley is an engineer with a masters degree in Chemical Engineering specializing in water and waste water treatment. He is the President of David Bromley Engineering Ltd., a company that celebrated 30 years of business in 2010. Mr Bromley is well recognized with his expertise in industrial site reclamation and sustainable community development. He also is a well regarded for his expertise in water recovery and reuse technology. He has been responsible for the detail review of over 50 technologies in the water sector for a variety of clients throughout his career. He is a guest lecturer in the area of water recovery and reuse at Texas A and M. Mr Bromley has developed and commercialized his own technologies and has had a variety experiences in the process of commercializing technology in the water sector.

Mr. Bromley now resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. His former residency was in St Albert (Edmonton) and Calgary Alberta for 17 years and during that time developed his own firm. He became very familiar with the concept of sustainable communities during his tenure on Premier Ralph Klein’s Alberta Round Table for the Environment and the Economy.

Mr. Bromley and his company have been appointed Project Director of the Rampart Avenir sustainable community development. The Rampart Avenir community is a 1.8 billion dollar project that will be developed in partnership with CISCO Systems Canada. This Smart and Connected Community will be located in the Capital Region (Metropolitan Edmonton) of Alberta and has been uniquely designed to develop a high speed, high volume data utility infrastructure.

The data infrastructure platform will attract:

1. The potential to use local energy production

Relating to energy from solar sources, fuel cells, bio fuels, and geothermal sources

2. Efficiency management systems for energy distribution

Related to the application of smart grids

3. Water distribution energy efficiency systems

Relating to the products to control pressure and water leakage in distribution systems

4. Local food production

Relating to hot house technology and the development of efficient growing mediums, lighting systems, moisture control systems, nutrient capture and application systems for crop production for the local community consumption

5. Building management and control systems

Relating to reducing energy and water consumption

6. The development of Smart materials and conservation products

Relating to the development and application of new materials and products that that are data monitored and/or controlled to allow the materials to react to various environments and improve the utilization of resources

7. Vehicle energy infrastructure

Relating to powering individual or small group transport including energy storage systems such as batteries and capacitors or compressed or liquid natural gas systems

8. The ability to improve delivery of services

Relating to the delivery of communication, security, health, education, government, transportation, retail and entertainment services

9. Creating efficiency in work place environment

Relating to the development of smart work centers and digital connectivity to reduce the need for physical transportation to the work place

10. The use of Data Analytics

Relating to the use of machine analysis of data to improve efficiency in decision making, the operation of processes, diagnostics, system controls and more
