Smart Communities: Rethinking Infrastructure Report

This report, developed by ICMA and Siemens, looks at smart cities technologies that communities are deploying across the energy and water sectors.

Jan 10, 2018

This report, developed by ICMA and Siemens, looks at smart cities technologies that communities are deploying across the energy and water sectors and examines challenges— some unique to these sectors and some that apply more broadly across smart cities applications. This report draws on interviews with cities and counties that are deploying these technologies, and four case studies—Boulder, Colorado; Cambridge, Massachusetts; Sacramento, California; and Arlington, Texas—illustrate specific examples of smart cities applications in the energy and water sectors.

What's Inside:

  • Defining the Smart City
  • Why This Matters for Your Community
  • Improving Resource Efficiencies between Sectors 
  • Benefits and Barriers to Smart Cities Technology Deployment
  • Smart Cities for Energy 
  • Smart Cities for Water 
  • What We’re Learning 
  • Community Profiles

Thank you for all the hard

Thank you for all the hard work that went into this report. It is very insighful. 

I serve on the Omaha Smart Cities Lab Planning Committee. The Omaha metro area is one of 12 "lighthouse" communities developing an approach to addressing social problems with technology. Transportation is the initial focus. I am sure there is plenty of overlap where both groups could learn from each other. I encourage ICMA and the Smart Cities Lab teams to collaborate. Or, at a minimum, share their findings and ideas.
