What is a “smart” city?

A “smart” city is a city living and breathing through its people, with its technological upgrading being at the same time a priority. An energy community with additional digital innovations aiming at improving quality of life, enhancing performance at all levels, optimizing resources exploitation and promoting  citizens’ active and productive involvement.

The “smart” city responds with a smart approach to the terms citizenship, governance and mobility. Through this city, the value of the community and its people comes to surface whereby the consumer is now a producer controlling its own consumption. The so-called “prosumers” will play a pivotal role being interconnected with the new energy market as important partners and associates through blockchain, coming naturally in contact with all “smart” city stakeholders.

Services and applications for the cities include:

  • Flexible energy management services
  • Smart water management
  • Smart waste management
  • High operability in public areas (appliances charging spots, Internet access through 4G / Wi-Fi, sound systems for citizens’ direct communication with public services, weather forecast information, access to lighting options)
  • Traffic management through smart applications
  • Exploitation of 5G and IoT potential
  • Central control systems providing direct information with a view to promptly resolving issues even through remote management.

Home services and applications will include:

  • «Smart» appliances such as batteries, inverters, photovoltaic panels
  • Electric vehicles charging stations
  • Ability for the inhabitants (“prosumers”) to monitor and control both produced and consumed energy

Therefore, using digital technologies, already existing structures and facilities will be constantly upgraded substantially interacting with citizens, with safety and credibility. At the same time the use of resources will be optimized while direct and indirect emissions will be reduced to the minimum.  

MYTILINEOS Smart Cities will employ additional concepts and services such as: Smart Energy Contracts, Smart Lighting, Connected public transport, Smart Parking, Public safety, Smart roads / Connected streetlights / Smart Traffic monitoring and management, Citizen/Tourist services entering the life of the citizens and rendering it easier. 

Furthermore, sustainability principles will play a major role in this net zero city. “Green” energy will be corresponding to total energy consumption, while citizens awareness of environmental and energy issues will be raised through continuous education and dissemination of information on issues of energy, water and the importance of technology
