BUILDING SMART CITIES TOGETHER
Develop new approaches and tools to improve the public’s understanding of how smart cities should operate. Promote the citizens’ active participation.
Implement Integrated Energy Management System to integrate and optimise energy from all sources in districts (and interface with city-wide system); including demand response measures.
Conduct deep energy retrofits of public/private residential properties affecting 15,000 people. This includes integration of low-carbon energy sources, physical modernisation, digital controls, and promote policy innovations and citizen/private incentives to save energy.
A portfolio of inter-connected initiatives (please see below) supporting the shift to low carbon shared mobility solutions.
Demonstrate smart lighting integrated with other smart service infrastructure (eV charging stations; smart parking; traffic monitoring via sensors; data management, wifi, etc). A swift and secure way to ‘bootstrap’ smart cities.
Manages data from a wide range of sources, including sensors, as well as traditional statistics. It is built on common principles, open technologies and standards. This development draws on London’s data analytics expertise (DataStore); Milan’s work on an application programming interface (API) marketplace and public use of data; and Lisbon’s experiences with sensor data analysis and gateways.
Build on existing e-bike sharing schemes and install a sufficient number of charging stations.
Adjust ambitions to actual reduction in car ownership and facilitate practice exchange amongst the cities and enable learning from different city contexts and ownership models to support EU-wide take-up.
Implement smart parking technologies, including evaluation of sensor type, implementation (potentially different sensor types and business models), testing and capture of operational experience.
Install a network of eV charging stations, and integrate them with overall place-based measures (building refurbishment; PV; lampposts; energy management system) to support shift from conventional cars to electric vehicles.
Implement electric vehicles in city logistics to reduce the number of gasoline-powered delivery trucks (e.g. with growth in on-line and local deliveries). This includes implementation of electric logistics to test and prove the business cases and promote potential re-use.
