Smart cities have a growing opportunity and imperative to become smart renewable cities

Elaborating on the findings of our Global renewable energy trends report, this paper describes the concept of smart renewable cities (SRCs) and talks about the role renewables play in shaping smart cities. It also explains some trends that have turned cities and the grid into leading platforms for human activity.

As cities expand and strive to become “smart,” solar and wind power can play a crucial role in helping them achieve their goals.

Deloitte developed a SRC framework to identify and classify cities globally that are integrating renewables with their smart city plans. This report analyzes how SRCs can:

  • Foster economic growth; 
  • Promote sustainability through renewable-powered buildings and electric mobility; and
  • Offer a higher quality of life by being inclusive, healthier, and empowering places to live. 

How can SRCs implement their initiatives through an ecosystem of stakeholders? Read the full report to learn how cities and utilities can collaborate to achieve their goals of self-sustaining cities and 100 percent renewables.
