Cities and counties are deploying smart cities applications to support energy, water, and wastewater operations. According to a 2016 survey conducted by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), in partnership with the Smart Cities Council, 38.7 percent of communities have smart cities applications in active deployment in the energy sector, while 37.5 percent have smart cities applications in active deployment in the water and wastewater sectors. Additionally, nearly a third of communities - 29.7 percent - cited the water and wastewater sector as their top smart cities priority.
This report looks at smart cities technologies that communities are deploying across the energy and water sectors and examines challenges - some unique to these sectors and some that apply more broadly across smart cities applications.
