Smart and Future Cities
Building cities of the future
To prepare for the future, cities across the world need solutions that integrate sensors, buildings, facilities and infrastructure. They also need to enable bold new strategies for energy management—from transportation to healthcare, water to waste treatment, and buildings to other resources. We take a collaborative approach in delivering urban efficiencies. With city government as a leader, citizens at the center, and technology as an enabler, we build an ecosystem of efficiency.
Innovating the urban ecosystem
Managing energy demand response is an arduous task for cities that are experiencing a boom in populations. Successful cities require long-range strategies that are effectively executed. Our services and solutions are helping cities bring their energy value chains to life.
Smarter transportation services
Our advanced transportation solutions and smart information services empower city and transportation authorities by enabling “situational awareness” and making coordination between agencies even easier.
Peace of mind for urbanites
Video security provides buildings, bridges, pipelines and ports an enhanced situational awareness that improves response and deters vanadalism and theft.
Smart Public Safety
Cleaner, more reliable water
As populations grow and cities expand, providing clean and affordable drinking water, managing wastewater, preventing water losses and preventing flooding are more essential than ever. Smart Cities need to make their water smart, too.
Built-in comfort and safety
Buildings are a city's most essential component. To keep buildings healthy, we deliver integrated, future-proof management solutions with world-class energy management systems, security controls, energy and carbon dashboards, and active energy controls.
Meeting City Energy Efficiency Goals: City of Boston, USA "Supports target goal of 25% reduction of greenhouse gasses by 2020, 80% by 2050"
The City of Boston has set long-range greenhouse gas reduction goals -- 25% by 2020 and, by 2050, an 80% reduction. Schneider Electric solutions capture and analyze data from the city’s 330 buildings, 640 signalized intersections, 64,000 street lights, 250 parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields, and three dozen bridges, providing energy consumption information to help optimize energy use and reduce operating expenses.Related solutions and products
Reducing Travel Time: Municipal Corp, Mumbai, India 10% Increase in traffic speed, 40% Lower energy consumption, 17% shorter Travel Time
"Mumbai has just three access roads into the city. Existing density made widening the roads impossible. By implementing the SmartMobility Traffic system Schneider was able to provide control of the city's network of traffic signals in real-time, improving flow."Related solutions and products
