IEC White Paper: Orchestrating infrastructure for sustainable Smart Cities – en, ru, zh, ko

By 2050, it is projected that 67% of the global population will live in cities. Smart cities are necessary to reduce emissions and to handle this rapid urban growth.

However cities, as we know them, are faced with a complex challenge – the traditional processes of planning, procuring and financing are not adequate for the needs of smart cities. Their development requires the right environment for smart solutions to be effectively adopted and used.

Electricity is core in any urban infrastructure system and the key enabler of cities development, so IEC has a specific role to play in the development of smart city standards. Delivering the full value of standards to accelerate the development of smart cities and lower its costs also clearly needs a strong collaboration of all city stakeholders.

This White Paper explains what is needed to move cities to greater smartness; the what, who and how of smart city development. It calls for a wide collaboration between many stakeholders, including other international standardization bodies to ultimately lead to integrated, cost-efficient, and sustainable solutions.

The White Paper was prepared by the IEC Market Strategy Board (MSB) project team on smart cities in cooperation with the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS).

IEC mini film: Cities

Tags :

Cities are giant systems with countless subsystems, all of whic depend on electric power and hardware to move people and things, collect data and exchange information. It is impossible to build an efficient urban infrastructure without reliable access to electricity and the many types of hardware that enable data collection. The IEC provides the majority of the International Standards needed to safely interconnect and automate much of the city infrastructure that generates or uses electricity and contains electronics.

News release: Significant milestone for Smart City development

Major standards organizations from around the world agree to work together to help move cities faster to greater smartness

In the wake of the World Smart City Forum, which was held on 13 July 2016 in Singapore, representatives of IEC, ISO, ITU, IEEE, CEN, CENELEC and ETSI gathered for a meeting initiated by the IEC. This meeting was a global first and part of an ongoing dialog among standards organizations. The aim was to accelerate and better align Smart City standardization work, which is essential for successful Smart City deployment. Between 60% and 70% of humanity is expected to be living in urban environments by 2050.

News release: Smart Cities: essential for global sustainability and urban efficiency

Geneva, Switzerland, 2016-07-05 – Today, most cities would like to become smart but many city planners don’t really know how to achieve this objective. Cities battle with pain points that touch the sustainable supply of energy or water, or how to eliminate gridlock and related pollution while allowing citizens to move around.

News release: Orchestrating Infrastructure for Sustainable Smart Cities

Geneva, Switzerland, 2015-01-29 – Globally, urban areas are home to around half the world’s population and generate around 80% of global Gross Domestic Product (GDP). They are responsible for around 70% of global energy consumption and energy-related greenhouse gas emissions.(1)

Cities are central to any solution to global economic, social, energy or environmental challenges. Without a coherent strategy to run cities more efficiently, the global targets on greenhouse gas emissions and the ambitions for sustainable growth cannot be achieved.
