ICT plays a significant role in helping cities reduce their carbon footprint and making them a better place to live by enabling a better use of energy in buildings and districts, transport and smart services for citizens.
Considered as an integral part of the smart city concept, ICT allows for integration of different urban systems and their operational processes, as well as citizen engagement. Some of the most wide-spread ICT solutions are energy management systems, traffic control systems, smart grids, urban data platforms, mobile applications, etc.
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.
Knowledgebase encompassing 64 demonstration and urban planning projects and their demonstration sites.
This section outlines some of technologies through which Europe aims to achieve the twin goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the security of energy supply.
Library contains SCIS monitoring guides, and Smart Cities resources.
