Advancing the deployment of technology solutions to make Europe’s cities smart, safe, healthy and sustainable

As cities grow in numbers and in size, many turning into megalopolises, they require a new concept: ICT and the Internet of Things optimise services, infrastructure and resource allocation, allow for better-informed decisions, increased control and choice for citizens, boost economic development and encourage social interaction. To turn a city into a smart city based on digital connectivity in an efficient way is a great challenge. Smart city initiatives require forethought and leadership, and smart city stakeholders need to make the benefits of their initiatives visible to citizens.

Why Wait? Seizing the Energy Access Dividend

Why Waitis a first report. The research and data can be made more comprehensive as we extend the work. However, in this first iteration the model framework shows positive benefits of delivering decentralized energy services earlier to those lacking electricity in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Kenya. The report indicates that households can save
hundreds of dollars—equivalent to the average annual income of between 61,800 and 406,000 people depending on the country and timeframe to deliver universal access—
by using solar for lighting and mobile phone-charging instead of kerosene and external phone-charging services.
