In times of advancing urbanization, cities are becoming pioneers in developing innovative ideas and measures to protect the climate. Being major contributors to climate change, cities are also especially affected by its consequences. Digitization and smart city concepts have the potential to make urban areas more efficient and sustainable. The key challenge will be the integration of electricity and heat, smart buildings and e-mobility into an intelligent and resource efficient system. As a driver of innovative and renewable technologies, the energy industry plays a key role in this process.
