Under Solutions you will find our solution booklets as well as the Smart City Guidance Package and its summary document.
Solution Booklets explain a technology or a concept and its potential for application in a city, in a short booklet of around 30 pages. The booklets are written in an accessible style so that non-technical experts can get grip of the technologies described. They provide various stakeholders with a good overview as well as a dive into what the specific technology or concept includes, and what it could mean for a particular city or municipality. It brings forward the lessons learned from pilot projects and previous applications, the enabling framework, the business case and the potential support the city can deliver to enable the technology or concept to be rolled out. The booklets’ subjects range from technical, like district heating and cooling networks or e-buses, to non-technical matters like citizen engagement or implementing sustainable and smart city strategies. All booklets contain a number of relevant examples, descriptions of cases and useful references.
The Smart City Guidance Package was developed under the former EIP SCC Marketplace, which has meanwhile become the Smart Cities Marketplace. It is an overall urban governance and planning manual that has been created on the basis of a wealth of experiences and advice from practices and projects on the ground. The Smart City Guidance Package may be compared to a tree structure to which the solution booklets are attached as its leaves.
