The new report China’s Urban Future sets out the opportunities for smart cities to deliver the national agenda of sustainable and equitable economic growth. By adding digital intelligence to urban systems such as water, power or transportation, new infrastructure can do more than ever before.
This report has been prepared by OAV - German Asia-Pacific Business Association, Volkswagen Group China and Siemens.
The Siemens eMobility Calculator, a sophisticated quantitative model, estimates the infrastructure requirements and potential impacts that the accelerating electrification of passenger transport will have. To learn how this modeling tool may help your city prepare for an electrified future, or to schedule an online demonstration please contact us.
With more than half of the global population living in cities, there is no doubt that we live in an urbanized world and the global challenges of the 21st century are in urban areas.Joan Clos, Former Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (2010-2017)
In many parts of the world, air pollution has reached dangerous levels. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), almost 90 percent of the world’s urban population breathe air with pollutant levels that far exceed the recommended thresholds. City leaders are under pressure to meet these challenges and define strategies for sustainable, clean and smart growth.
The deployment of sensors and digital analytics provide unique opportunities to harness data to make better decisions and take action. New digital technologies will contribute to tangible improvements in local quality of life by enabling citizens to improve their health and make more informed decisions about how they travel, and by giving city leaders a better understanding of the causes and severity of local air pollution. City Air Management technology identifies actions to avert poor air quality in the short-term, simulates the impact of these measures and creates enough certainty around these impacts to foster proactive decision-making.
Complementary, the City Performance Tool assesses the impact of medium- and long-term measures on a city’s overall emissions.
