Siemens: Smart Cities
Zero Carbon Growth: China’s cities are undergoing structural rejuvenation. In the process, they are growing at an unparalleled rate. Nanjing, for instance, is one of the cities tasked with making China’s mega-urbanization a success. Its ambitious target such as zero-carbon growth entails complex planning. That’s where the Siemens City Performance Tool (CyPT) comes in: It supports planners by providing an overview and recommending possible, concrete steps together with implementation plans. In Nanjing, that means assisting the city in reaching its emission targets. Learn more here.
The Mobility Opportunity: Urban decision makers cite transport amongst their top challenges. Efficient transport can attract economic activity to cities, and boost productivity by improving connectivity and reducing time lost to traffic. This is why Siemens commissioned strategic consultancy Credo to establish both the economic cost of inefficient transport and the potential economic benefits of investing in public transport improvements. Please read the first research of its kind to quantify the economic benefits on a global scale and to show that investments are paying off. Learn more here.
