About the Smart Cities Information System (SCIS)
The Smart Cities Information System (SCIS) brings together project developers, cities, institutions, industry and experts from across Europe to exchange data, experience and know-how and to collaborate on the creation of smart cities and an energy-efficient urban environment.
Launched with support from the European Commission, SCIS encompasses data collected from ongoing and future smart cities and energy efficiency projects co-funded by the European Union. Focusing on energy, mobility and transport, and ICT, SCIS showcases solutions in the fields of energy-efficiency in buildings, energy system integration, sustainable energy solutions on district level, smart cities and communities, strategic sustainable urban planning.
With the aim to foster replication, SCIC analyses project results and experiences to:
- Establish best practices which will enable project developers and cities to learn and replicate
- Identify barriers and point out lessons learnt, with the purpose of finding better solutions for technology implementation and policy development
- Provide recommendations to policy makers on support and policy actions needed to address market gaps.
