Ciudades más inteligentes para un desarrollo sostenible
Cómo optimizar los sistemas de la ciudad en una economía basada en el talento

IBM Institute for Business Value

Por Susanne Dirks, Constantin Gurdgiev y Mary Keeling

En el siglo XXI, el crecimiento, el valor económico y la diferencia competitiva de las ciudades dependerán cada vez más de las personas y su cualificación,
creatividad y conocimiento, así como de la capacidad de su economía para generar y absorber la innovación. Para competir en este nuevo contexto económico, las ciudades
deberán aplicar las tecnologías de la información y herramientas analíticas más avanzadas que les permitan desarrollar un enfoque de los servicios más orientado al
ciudadano y, de esta forma, retener y expandir más eficazmente esa cualificación, conocimiento y creatividad de sus ciudadanos.

Sustainable Urban Infrastructure
London Edition – a view to 2025
A research project sponsored by Siemens

Sustainable Urban Infrastructure (London Issue): A View to 2025 (2008) draws examples from London to provide an environmental profile of where the city stands today and how it can use a variety of technologies to achieve key sustainability goals by 2025. Published by Siemens’ Economist Intelligence Unit, the study highlights key determinants of urban environmental performance that can offer insight for other mature cities. The report offers an holistic perspective, rigorous quantification, a common methodology applied to different areas of sustainability, and consideration of a comprehensive set of potential technological options for improvement, including their economic dimensions. Many strategies to reduce urban energy and water consumption and improve waste management not only help protect the environment, but are also economically profitable. The study will be useful for policy makers, planners, businesses, consumers and individuals concerned with urban sustainability.

European Initiative on Smart Cities

Strategic objective

To demonstrate the feasibility of rapidly progressing towards our energy and climate objectives at a local level while proving to citizens that their quality of life and local economies can be improved through investments in energy efficiency and reduction of carbon emissions. This Initiative will foster the dissemination throughout Europe of the most efficient models and strategies to progress towards a low carbon future.

Indicative Roadmap

This Initiative will support cities and regions in taking ambitious and pioneering measures to progress by 2020 towards a 40% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through sustainable use and production of energy. This will require systemic approaches and organisational innovation, encompassing energy efficiency, low carbon technologies and the smart management of supply and demand. In particular, measures on buildings, local energy networks and transport would be the main components of the Initiative.

The Initiative builds on existing EU and national policies and programmes, such as CIVITAS, CONCERTO and Intelligent Energy Europe. It will draw upon the other SET-Plan Industrial Initiatives, in particular the Solar and Electricity Grid, as well as on the EU public-private partnership for Buildings and Green Cars established under the European Economic Plan for Recovery. The local authorities involved in the Covenant of Mayors (more than 500 cities) will be mobilised around this initiative to multiply its Impact.

Specific objectives

  • To trigger a sufficient take-up (reaching 5% of the EU population) of energy efficient and low carbon technologies to unlock the market.
  • To reduce by 40% the greenhouse gas (reference year 1990) emissions by 2020, that will demonstrate not only environmental and energy security benefits but also to provide socio-economic advantages in terms of quality of life, local employment and businesses, and citizen empowerment.
  • To effectively spread across Europe best practices of sustainable energy concepts at local level, for instance through the Covenant of Majors.
  • In moving towards these objectives, local authorities will propose and implement holistic problem-solving approaches, integrating the most appropriate technologies and policy measures. This would involve ambitious and pioneer measures in buildings, energy networks and transport.

European Comission – Communication on Smart Cities and Communities 

With Europe 2020, a comprehensive strategy has been put forward to foster smart, inclusive  and sustainable growth in Europe and to provide a framework for the European Union to emerge strengthened from the current financial and economic crisis. Innovation has been placed at the heart of the 2020 strategy as Europe’s competitiveness and capacity to create new jobs depends on driving innovation in products and services. It is also the best means of
successfully tackling major societal challenges, such as climate change and energy efficiency.

Libro Blanco Smart Cities 

Nuestro país cuenta con todos los elementos para jugar un papel relevante, ya que la tipología de los municipios es muy dispar. Este libro trata de identificar los pasos a seguir para que la aplicación de la filosofía Smart City sea viable en todos los municipios. El objetivo, a lo largo de los distintos capítulos, es transmitir ideas para que los responsables de la gestión de los municipios consideren la necesidad de evolucionar hacia un modelo eficiente y sostenible y que este modelo se construya ad-hoc a la casuística de cada municipio.

AMETIC – Informe de Smart Cities 2012

AMETIC y el Foro TIC para la Sostenibilidad, por medio del presente informe, expone su visión de las Smart Cities, del propio concepto de ciudad inteligente, de los servicios que puede prestar y de las tecnologías que han de sustentar una más eficiente prestación de esos servicios.
