Energy Mondays-Smart Cities & Energy-Interdisciplinary Debate

The Energy Monday talk series invites you for an interesting discussion about a fascinating topic of smart cities, where you’ll be able to learn and actively participate in the discussion regarding the technological and social implications of the smart city project

As a concentration and hub of commerce and culture, cities attract people. Today, around 50% of the population of the planet lives in or around cities. It is expected that this number will rise to more than 70% by 2050. Cities will urgently need to adapt to the growing pressures on resources, urban infrastructures and the environment due to rapid urbanization.

Being a potential solution to these urban difficulties, the Smart City concept has been trending during recent years.

  • What is a Smart City?
  • Can smart cities be a solution to achieve a sustainable, greener living environment?
  • What are the prospects and the challenges of these projects?

We have invited these exciting experts to discuss the topic with the audience:

Christoffer Greisen, Project Management for “EnergyLab Nordhavn“. Lea Schick, post-doc researcher in the “Street lab” .

EnergyLab Nordhavn and Street lab are two of the smart city initiatives hosted by Copenhagen Solutions Lab.
