Smart technology is available and cities are the ideal application fields to demonstrate their power and advantages.
Trials and lighthouse projects are started in different fields from renewable energy supply to the efficient use of resources in production, in buildings or in transportation systems.
A steadily increasing number of cities are joining the smart city initiatives.
The urban regions are therefore taking a real leadership role in supporting the implementation of smart technologies in testing their possibilities and benefits.
