More liveable space for more residents
Smart urban transformation for citizens
Dresden is a city of knowledge and skills. Almost half of all workers have scientific and technological careers or have studied a subject in that field. The people of Dresden have a deep-rooted tradition of engineering and openness towards new technologies. The interdisciplinary collaboration between businesses and research facilities helps move Dresden forward.
The Munich lighthouse demonstration area within the SMARTER TOGETHER project is located at the western edge of the city, and includes both the large urban redevelopment area Neuaubing-Westkreuz and the flagship new development area Freiham, set to become a model of low-carbon development for up to 20 000 new residents and 7 500 new jobs. With the aid of cutting-edge technology and the intelligent use of data, Munich’s objectives are to cut CO2 emissions by more than 20 %, raise the use of renewable energy to above 20 % and increase energy efficiency by more than 20 %.
