Environmental effects of smart city infrastructures

As part of the project "Environmental Effects of Smart City Infrastructures", the Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit), subcontracted by adelphi Research, is investigating the facilitating and hindering effects of norms and standards on the implementation of smart city approaches. In the process, an evaluation of international standards in the smart city sector is also carried out with regard to regional specifics. At the same time, conclusions will be drawn for the international standardisation discussion on the basis of the case studies examined in the project. Furthermore, an overview of existing and planned legislation with Smart City relevance will be compiled.
