In times of advancing urbanisation, cities are pioneers in the development of innovative ideas and actions to protect our climate. As the major cause of climate change, they are also particularly affected by its consequences. Digitisation and Smart City concepts have the potential to create more efficient and sustainable cities. The main challenges are posed by the integration of heating and electricity, efficient buildings and electric transport within an intelligent overall system which protects the earth’s resources.
As the driving force behind innovative and renewable technologies, the energy industry will play a key role in this. This is why E-world 2019 will be expanding its focus, combining Smart City with Climate Solutions - with the aim of shaping a sustainable transformation and promoting smart technologies, services and infrastructures.
