Orchestrating Infrastructure for Sustainable Smart Cities

141110 - CEPS was a principal partner in a major project organised
by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), resulting in a White Paper aimed at identifying ways to orchestrate
infrastructure for sustainable Smart Cities. By 2050, it is projected that 67% of the world’s population will live in
cities and therefore Smart Cities are necessary to reduce emissions and to handle rapid urban growth. But cities, as we know
them, are faced with a complex challenge – the traditional processes of planning, procuring and financing are not adequate
for the needs of Smart Cities. Their development requires the right environment for smart solutions to be effectively adopted
This White Paper explains what is needed to
move cities to greater smartness; the what, who and how of smart city development. It calls for a wide collaboration between
many stakeholders, including other international standardization bodies to ultimately lead to integrated, cost-efficient,
and sustainable solutions.
The CEPS participants included
CEPS Research Fellow Jorge Núñez Ferrer, who acted as Project Partner Leader, Monica Alessi, CEPS Programme
Manager, Christian Egenhofer, CEPS Senior Fellow and Vasileios Rizos, CEPS Researcher.
