SMART CITY “X” PROGRAM: FROM ADELAIDE TO PEKING TO MOSCOW TO LONDON TO WASHINGTON THE I-CITY “X” PLATFORM IS TO COLLECT BIG DATA FROM SMART COMPUTING, INTELLIGENT INSTRUMENTATION, SMART DEVICES AND SENSORS EMBEDDED IN ITS STREETS AND ROADWAYS, POWER AND WATER GRIDS, BUILDINGS AND OTHER CITY ASSETS, INTERCONNECTED VIA SMART COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS, WIRED, WIRELESS AND MOBILE, USING SMART SOFTWARE FOR DELIVERING INTELLIGENT INFORMATION AND SERVICES: DIGITAL CITIZENS, SMART POLITICS, SMART HEALTH, SMART EDUCATION, SMART HOME, SMART UTILITIES (WATER, ENERGY, WASTE, TRANSPORTATION, INFORMATION), SMART SAFETY AND SECURITY, ONLINE TAXES AND PERMITS, UTILITY BILLS, E-PAYMENTS, GIS INFORMATION ON CABLES, PIPES, WATER MAINS, TRAFFIC MAPS, CRIME REPORTS, EMERGENCY WARNINGS, CULTURAL EVENTS, ETC. HTTP://WWW.SLIDESHARE.NET/ASHABOOK/AZAMAT-ABDOULLAEV HOW TO DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE CITIES Living on the Intelligent City Platform To become intelligent, green and inclusive is the future of any modern city and community. Smart cities, strategies and technologies, are generating interest globally to address the contemporary urban problems: rapid urbanization, stressed city finances, aging infrastructure, rising energy costs, global warming, bad ecology, and competition for global investment and skilled labor, urban poverty, social exclusion and spatial marginalization. The Smart City “X” Program aims to build a new city or to transform any modern city as environmentally sustainable, inter-connected, instrumented, innovative, and integrated, regionally and globally attractive for businesses, citizens, visitors and investors. Considering the 21st century will be a century of cities, most global investment and public funding will go for innovative city projects. SMART CITY is to be managed by its urban brains, an intelligent city cloud smart computing platform, managing its resources, assets, processes and systems: Urban Land and Environment, Roads and Transportation, Energy networks and Utilities, ICT networks and fiber telecom infrastructure, Public and residential buildings, Natural Resources, Water and Waste management, Social infrastructure, Health and safety, Education and culture, Public administration and services, Communities and Businesses.
  • 2. WHAT IS A SMART CITY “X”: HOW IT SHOULD BE DEVELOPED  A smart City “X” is replaceable by any future city or old and legacy city, from Adelaide to Peking to Limassol to Moscow to London to Washington, but largely following to the same conception and definition.  There are many definitions of smart cities, from the infusion of ICT into urban systems to intelligent design and technological optimization to reach full sustainability.  Specifically, a smart city is defined as one in which technology is integrated into a strategic approach to sustainability, citizen well-being, and economic development. In essence, smart cities are a phenomenon created from the convergence of the challenges of modern urbanization and the emergence of new technologies that can address them in a comprehensive way.  The smart city market is to be made up of five main industry sectors: smart energy (and the smart grid), smart transportation, smart water, smart buildings, and smart government (including social services such as health, education, and security) (Navigant Research).  Demographic, environmental, economic, political and socio-cultural factors are forcing the urban world to become more efficient and effective.  A real or true smart city is a unified urban entity with three critical layers/levels/spaces, all planned, developed and managed as its integral parts:  • Digital/ICT/Hi-Tech/Ubiquitous/Cyber/Mobile/Digitally Smart and Intelligent City (Digital/Information Capital; Digital Urban Spaces, Multi-Play Telecom Network, ICT spaces/systems/applications, Sensor Networks, Ubiquitous Computation, Cloud Computing, Network- integrated Real Estate, City OS, Intelligent City Management Platform, Augmented Virtual Reality, Virtual Lifestyle);  • Sustainable/Ecological/Green/Zero-Carbon/Zero-Waste/Eco Friendly/Clean City (Natural Capital; Natural Urban Spaces and Ecosystems, Green Energy Network, Real Eco Estate, Ecological buildings, Green Lifestyle);  • Knowledge/Learning/Innovation/Intelligent/Science/Intellectual/LivingLab/Creative/Human/Social  /Inclusive City/Noopolis (Knowledge Capital; Innovation Systems, Meaningful Urban Spaces, Collective Intelligence, Knowledge Triangle/Ecology, Health Triangle, Human Social City, Intelligent/Smart Lifestyle).  A truly smart city is three innovative cities in one, the Urban Trinity of Information Cyber City, Intelligent/Knowledge City and Ecological/Clean city. It is essential to draw distinctions between a smart city, as a unified urban entity, and “smart city” technologies, applications, and systems, as well as fragmented “smart city” projects, lacking the overall conception of the smart city project and resulting in unsustainably over-costly ventures.  Smart City Program EIS Ltd 2014
  • 3. HOW TO DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE CITIES SMART CITY “X” PLANNING SYSTEM  The Global Report on Human Settlements (Planning Sustainable Cities) argues that future urban planning must take place in the context of the factors shaping 21st-century cities: environmental challenges; demographic challenges; economic challenges; socio-spatial challenges and inequalities; political challenges of decision-making as well as of social and economic rights among ordinary citizens.  The Report states: In many parts of the world, there still persist either conventional forms of urban planning, as in the developing cities, or market-led urban development in the developed world, having serious and negative environmental and social impacts.  Specifically, unrealistic urban planning regulations can force the poor to violate laws in order to survive, with more than 1 billion slum dwellers worldwide, just to double over the next generation, like the whole urban population.  The Smart City “X” Planning approach postulates that there must be a universal “one size fits all” model to sustainable settlements fundamentally resolving critical urban issues (land use and environment, transportation and mobility, water, waste, energy, environmental degradation, and social issues as poverty and social exclusion and displacement) regardless of that each city is marked by its specific political systems, cultural settings, economic structures and ecological climates in which it continually and historically evolves.  The full concept of Smart City entails that there is a single model and universal approach to sustainable urban planning (in large legacy cities > 0,5 m, new megacities > 10 m and hypercities > 20 m, as well as in medium-sized settlements, 0,1-0,5 m and small urban places ,< 0,1m) that can solve fundamental urban problems and emerging urban challenges of the 21st century.  In sum, any sustainable city or intelligent community is to offer not only new or improved methods of urban development, management and maintenance, but a comprehensive, holistic approach, embracing all city systems, processes, and service in an integrated smart city urban planning, all to be run by intelligent management governance systems, the “brains” of the Urban Internet of Everything.  Smart City Program EIS Ltd 2014
  • 4. HOW TO REDEVELOP OLD CITIES: SMART URBAN RENEWAL  Applying an integrated urban planning (creating and following new regulations and standards for land use and zoning, ecology, transportation, roads and streets, housing, sanitation, water supply, sewage, public spaces, public health conditions, education, security and other social services)  Performing comprehensive urban renewal for a whole urban environment and living (rebuilding, land reuse, building, rehabilitation, area conservation, relocation , or housing reform)  Taking into account the Urban context:  Population, density, area, climate, ecology and geography, economy, existing urban planning….)  • Natural Resources demand (energy, water, food, land): eg, energy consumption per sector, CO2 emissions per sector, etc.  • Natural Resources supply and infrastructure: eg, energy mix (share of renewables, fuel, nuclear…), approx. energy price, energy company, energy infrastructure (district heating, share of distributed generation)  • Building stock: % residential sector, commercial sector, facilities, services, industry, number of units …  • Transport: modal split, multimodality, public transport characteristics, footing, cycling…  • Regional and national context: national conditions and incentives for sustainable development in your country (national programmes, rules, incentives, tax regulations, implementation of standard directives…)  • City competences and resources: competences and resources under local governments in your country (compared to regional, national governments) related to sustainable city policies; city budget dedicated to sustainable development policies.  Covering the systemic approach of the City Protocol , “a new open, global, and progressive working framework for cities worldwide to assess and improve performance in environmental sustainability, economic competitiveness, quality of life, and city services, by innovating and demonstrating new leadership models, new ways of engaging society, and by leveraging new ICT… The city should be adaptive, learning, evolving, robust, autonomous, self-repairing, and self-reproducing”. Smart City Program EIS Ltd 2014
  • 5. SMART MEGATRENDS: SMART CITY GLOBAL COMPETITION  The question of who is to lead the future cities market is getting a global meaning as far as global competitors are actively pursuing large Smart City programs as part of smart revolutions: http://  In its Five-Year National Planning, China’s future “smart cities” are to become a main driver of its urbanization process, with 2 trillion yuan ($322 billion) to be allocated to more than 600 cities nationwide.   China’s going for “the business as usual” approach consisting in requesting the fragmented services from the increasing army of urban planners and architects, operators and exporters of smart city technologies, products and services, which SMART City “X” should avoid: Following the India Vision 2020, the nation is embarking on an ambitious $90 billion two-phase industrial program to build new industrial cities as smart, sustainable cities of the future, along a territorial corridor, spanning six states, connecting two capitals, Delhi and Mumbai, and affecting 14% of India’s population. Conceptualized with the Government of Japan, the DMIC program master plan is mostly focusing on deploying next generation technologies and road/rail/air connectivity and infrastructure linkages, with 24 economic nodes, investment regions and industrial areas. The goal is to expand national manufacturing and services base, becoming a "Global Manufacturing and Trading Hub”, minimizing green growth and social development programs.  The Japanese Government created a “FutureCity” with a goal to “construct sustainable cities with superior environmental technologies, core infrastructure and resilience all over the world…to advance the “Future City” model of urban planning with state-of-the-art environmental sustainability, strong disaster resilience and superb livability”.  The European Union has embarked on a long-term strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. There are more than 100 000 cities, towns and communities in EU, with a fierce competition for resources, local, regional and global, and public and private capital. Only innovative cities, towns and communities with innovative public projects will have a strong competitive advantage.   The European Commission established a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Smart Cities and Communities.   Russia’s expenses just for its intelligent model community (Skolkovo Innovation Center) might exceed $15 billion, not mentioning it’s planned multibillion infrastructure projects.  Again, following the mega trend of smart global urbanization, the UK Government organized the Smart Cities Forum coordinated by Technology Strategy Board, with very useful initiative of the Future Cities Demonstrator competition:  Smart City Program EIS Ltd 2014
  • 6. AN URBAN WORLD AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE CITIES: THE CASE OF URBAN I-EUROPE 2020  The recent EU Future CITIES major forum signaled that an Urban Europe Agenda is getting an official attention as a key mechanism of the EU Strategy 2020, developing the smart, sustainable, and inclusive Europe:   Among the questions for debates there were as follows:  Why do we need an EU urban agenda?  What should an EU urban agenda be?  How can an EU urban agenda be implemented?  If the first question is just rhetorical, the rest two bear critical importance , as indicated, in Europe there are more than 100,000 cities and communities, with almost 80% as urban dwellers, all looking to improve their communal wealth and urban life through sustainable integrated solutions.  To be most effective, we believe, an EU urban agenda should be a Global Comprehensive Strategy and Reference Framework for sustainable cities and intelligent communities, comprising the following key features:  Guiding principles with a system of goals and objectives with measurable targets  Integrated sustainable urban development policy covering the economic, environmental, climate, political, technological and social challenges of urban life Integrated investment strategy meeting the economic, environmental, political, technological, digital and social problems of urban life  Implementation roadmap to realize integrated territorial re/development in the most systematic ways (to secure a minimum of 5 % of the ERDF resources allocated for integrated actions for sustainable urban development)  Urban Europe Development Platform for coordinating actors and policies, European, national and local:  In all, on the European level, the Urban Europe Intelligent InterCloud Platform is proposed, where each MS and major city will be featured by its smart cloud system.  On the urban level, each intelligent community and smart city is projected to be managed by its urban brains, an intelligent city cloud platform, managing its resources, assets, processes and systems: Urban Land and Environment, Roads and Transportation, Energy networks and Utilities, ICT networks and fiber telecom infrastructure, Public and residential buildings, Natural Resources, Water and Waste management, Social infrastructure, Health and safety, Education and culture, Public administration and services, Communities and Businesses.  Smart City Program EIS Ltd 2014

  • 8. SMART CITY “X” INVESTMENT STRATEGY  In 2014-2015, Most Worldwide Spending on Smart City Projects Will Be Focused on Intelligent ICT, Energy, Transportation, and Public Safety, mainly Funded by National or International Government and governed by Joint Ventures or PPP.  The “Smart City “X” Investment Strategy aims to transform a city as an intelligent eco city: environmentally sustainable, inter- connected, instrumented, innovative, and integrated, regionally and globally attractive for businesses, citizens, visitors and investors.  Its Vision is to become a Smart City of the Future, Intelligent Eco City or Smart Sustainable Urban Community. While operating, SMART City “X” is to be managed by its urban brains, an intelligent city cloud platform, managing its resources, assets, processes and systems: Urban Land and Environment, Roads and Transportation, Energy networks and Utilities, ICT networks and fiber telecom infrastructure, Public and residential buildings, Natural Resources, Water and Waste management, Social infrastructure, Health and safety, Education and culture, Public administration and services, Communities and Businesses.  As the key challenges, there are recognized the lack of technology and business models standardization, price competition and poor partnership, when each player protects its IP, thus failing to establish a working consortium of general contractors, architect firms, housing companies, IT vendors, auto companies, electronics companies and energy suppliers  Thus, to build a real intelligent community or smart city, all the key sectors of communal life should be covered: land and environment, transportation, mobility, energy, buildings, ICT, water, waste, health, education, safety and security, and other social services, as closely interconnected and interfaced.  Capitalizing on intelligent strategic planning and digital solutions, Smart City “X” is setting forward a total strategic investment package of the next-generation urban development, bettering the existing Smart City Value Chain of Plan, Research/FS and Implementation: {Concept, Design > Estate/Land Space Plan} > {Environment/energy plan> [Traffic plan/Water plan/IT plan/Business plan] >Financing} > {EPC > Production > Device Installation > Infrastructure Supply > Life Support > Community Activities}.
