  1. 1. Smart City #greencity
  2. 2. • A smart city is a green city that uses renewable energy, produces zero waste and is healthy & safe to live in. This city follows the followingmanagement practices that aid in its objective of sustained green living.
  3. 3. Energy management • Use of renewable energy resources as much as possibleas per the availability. • Solar power enabled buildings [ edu. Intitutes, govt. buildings,railway bus stations, hospitals],solar street lightings • Solar power incentives to people connecting to the grid • Bio energy generation
  4. 4. Waste management • Aim for zero waste • Reduce, reuse and recycle. • Localized solid waste segregation and waste management units • Efficient waste to energy plants
  5. 5. Transport • Public transport should green energy powered [ solar powered & battery operated] vehicles • Laying down of cycle tracks, pedestrian lanes, vehicle free zones [ near edu. institutions, hospitalsetc. ] • Heavy vehicles should not be allowed in cities or allowed during restricted hours. Should adhere to pollution checks.
  6. 6. Water management • Rain water harvesting infrastructure integral part of residential & commercial structure • Recharging water bodies with rain water & stoppingpollution by proper waste water treatment • River front development with appropriate selection of flora and fauna that help in reducing soil erosion & reduce water pollution
  7. 7. Air quality management • Lots of green spaces • Air purifiers at high traffic congestion spots • Green walls, plants to counter air pollution • Incentives for green vehicles, fining of polluting vehicles • Air quality monitoring at strategic places
  8. 8. City administration • Ability to approach the authorities directly with complaints,requests & suggestion about city issues[online ] • Online registration of basic amenities [paperless administration] • Civic admin should coordinatewith RWAs and volunteer group. Proper feedback loop should be in place to track work done regularly.
  9. 9. Safety • CCTV cameras at strategic places • Neighbourhoodwatch program • Volunteer network that coordinateswith law enforcement people • RWAs should coordinate with law enforcement people
  10. 10. Smart City materials
  11. 11. Plastic roads "Plastic Man," Rajagopalan Vasudevan has used common plastic litter into a substitutefor bitumen — the main ingredient in asphalt used for road construction. http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/articles/2014-07- 10/indias-plastic-man-chemist-turns-litter-into-paved-roads
  12. 12. Permeable concrete Using permeable concrete that can absorb water and permeable paving that can pass water, are ideal for pavements, parking lots, etc. http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/09/30/3706935/permeable-concrete-climate-change- benefits/.
  13. 13. Smart street lighting In street smart lighting, efficient lights with smart controls are fitted at every lighting point. This helps to improve lighting quality and help saving energy. This leads to increase in the life span of the lighting module and offers flexibility where each street light can be programmed independently as per requirement. http://smartcitiescouncil.com/article/8-spanish- cities-cut-energy-consumption-64-smart- street-lighting
  14. 14. Bamboo • Bamboois a green material and is a viable, sustainable and engineered alternative to other materials. Its light weight and highly flexible. It is an eco-friendly material that reaches maturity much faster than conventional trees and produces more oxygen than the hard wood trees, thus helps in reducing global warming. No pesticides or chemicals are needed for its development. Structural applications of bamboo are diverse and can be used in city furniture, smart buildings and urban infrastructures.
  15. 15. Recyclable Construction Materials • Recyclable Materials should be used in constructionpurposes. the reuse of recycled materials is an innovative and a highly effective way for a smart and sustainable design. Reusing materials from existing on site or procured from nearby site elements such as trees, structures,and paving is a healthy trend. • Most common building materials today can be recycled. Concrete,metals, glass, brick and plastics can be recycled and helps to lower energy requirement and emissions by up to ninety percent in most cases.
  16. 16. Perforated clay bricks • Multi-perforated clay bricks should be used as they have excellent fire resistance, good thermal and acoustic insulation, and superior durability.
