• Smart Public Services
The demands on city services are increasing, and Smart Public Services helps cities to efficiently manage public safety, street lighting, healthcare and government administration. Cities will experience improved information-sharing between agencies, fewer disruptions to public services and increased control over city systems. Improved public services lead to higher quality of life for citizens, increasing the attractiveness of the city for jobs and talent.
• Smart Buildings and Homes
In Europe, nearly €300 billion in energy costs are lost each year due to inefficient buildings. Smart Buildings and Homes tools, including energy and environmental monitoring and visualization, help cities optimize resource consumption for office buildings, datacenters, industrial facilities, hospitals, universities and residential homes, resulting in reduced emissions and energy consumption and improved resident engagement. Our solutions connect buildings to the electric network and to each other, enabling the smart grid.
ABI Research, a market intelligence company specializing in global technology markets, selected Telvent as one of the companies with the best positions on the smart city industry in the world, together with three other international companies, thanks to the holistic approach of its smart city strategy.
The report predicts that companies embracing multiple aspects in their smart city strategies, like Telvent and Schneider Electric, will be best positioned to compete to develop advanced systems that better control, monitor, and manage traffic flows in emerging megacities, one of the main challenges for public authorities today.
