More and more people around the world live in cities and conurbations. Smart City is the generic term for developments to make urban living spaces liveable and attractive with the help of digital applications.
Why Smart City?
Through the intelligent networking of municipal infrastructure, the use of modern technologies and the involvement of citizens, there is an opportunity for sustainable urban development in the 21st century. This would make it easier than ever to meet the challenges posed by transport and environmental problems, demographic change and climate protection.
What is the BEA doing?
Together with partners from the digital economy, BEA is implementing smart city projects that focus on the aspects of energy system transformation and climate protection. This also includes the integration of our own power generation plants into concepts for smart neighbourhood development and into the overall framework of a future energy supply structure.
