1 Smart Lighting

Smart lampposts on the ‘Hoekenrodeplein’ contribute to a safer public square and it saves energy by regulating the lightning intensity trough sensors. For example, lighting can be dimmed or adjusted according to the weather. The saved energy is used to measure air quality or generating WiFi. This concept will be further spread over the city of Amsterdam, like in the port. Read more on Smart Lighting.

2 Smart Traffic Management

By a collaboration between traffic managers from the municipality, province and country, the percentage of vehicle loss hours in the Amsterdam area has declined by 10 percent. The traffic management system of Amsterdam is connected with the system of the national government. Both centres can see what is going on, on just one screen. This is how the centres can jointly and automatically manage traffic within the region. Read more on Smart Traffic Management.

3 TransformCity: Pilot in Amsterdam

With so many different people living and working in cities, why not include all their dreams, their ideas and their ambitions, to create our cities of the future – together? That’s where TransformCity comes in. TransformCity is an online urban transformation dashboard. Citizens, businesses, organizations and the government can directly exchange information and ideas and collectively plan, make and own their city or neighbourhood. One of the examples is a neighbourhood in Amsterdam Southeast: ZOCITY. Check out TransformCity

4 City-zen: Virtual Power Plant

In Amsterdam Nieuw-West 50 households have PV-panels on their rooftop in combination with a home battery. With the use of the home battery it is possible to store energy during low electricity prices and discharge the battery during high prices. This closes the gap between the availability of (renewable) energy and the actual energy demand. Do you have PV panels or do you plan to install them in 2016? You can still participate in this project, read more!

5 The Green Living Lab

How can nature be integrated with the urban environment where we work, live and play in a sustainable way that benefits our health? In The Green Living Lab in Amsterdam, scientists, entrepreneurs and creatives meet to explore, stimulate and promote healthy urban living. For instance the possibilities of making compost out of the organic waste in Amsterdam are investigated. Check out The Green Living Lab.
