Integrated Infrastructures & Processes (including Open Data)

Significant and as yet insufficiently tapped value is offered by integrating the various existing and new infrastructure networks within and across cities – be they energy, transport, communications or others – rather than duplicating these needlessly. This point applies, both, to active and passive infrastructure. Many such infrastructures are ageing; budgets to replace them are stretched; they are procured and managed ‘in silos’; yet the potential afforded to cities and their customers through new joined-up approaches, exploiting modern technologies is substantial. This is achievable; however it will take sustained commitment from multiple parties to access value.

Some actions (this is only an example) on integrated infrastructure may focus on:

  • Intelligent lighting
  • City Information Platforms
  • Shared infrastructure planning
  • Transforming the Energy Chain
  • Road systems
  • Intelligent multi-modal transport solutions
  • Parking systems
  • Urban Mobility
  • Peer to peer transport information
  • Waste-4-Heat
  • Adverse Events

Many cities are grappling with the challenge of understanding how best to connect the rapidly growing volumes of data from their existing service operations, new sensors (IoT), social interactions and the like – in order to deliver better outcomes for their citizens and their local economy.
