Energy transition and digitization are major game changers that will give Smart Cities the determining role on the road to a future society. We also see many creative ideas and good projects. Certainly, in the Netherlands, and elsewhere in Europe.
However, the final implementation often yields less than the original design. We often see delays from all sides in projects. Upscaling is the magic word but we don’t see it happening on a large scale yet.
How come? Is sustainability not the biggest priority in reality? Are there gaps in policymaking or is there a lack of legal and administrative framework?
To get a better insight, to share knowledge and experiences and to establish a connection we, Adit Ram of Dreaminc and René de la Fonteijne from Exhem take you to successful projects that are in an advanced stage or have been completed.
