Black & Veatch's 2018 Strategic Directions: Smart Cities & Utilities Report explores progress made by communities and utilities on the path toward smarter cities. The report finds that bold advances in data analytics, electrified transportation and next-gen communications systems will propel smart cities, as creative financing strategies challenge old notions that these projects require massive upfront investment. Transportation agencies stand to gain from smart city initiatives, as zero-emissions technologies mature and concerns about climate change rise, fanning a desire to move people in more efficient ways.
Although obstacles remain, with planning, support and understanding – combined with vision and collaboration – cities and utilities can achieve their initiatives and ensure a more resilient, sustainable future.
