Copenhagen is testing smart technologies to handle the challenges of urbanisation and climate change. Unique access to data and efficient public-private sector partnerships attract many multinationals in the Danish capital. Copenhagen is the first integrated city data exchange in the world.
Copenhagen aims also to become the world’s first carbon-neutral capital by 2025. Denmark is determined to become fully independent of fossil fuels by 2050. These ambitious objectives and the strong political focus on sustainable societies in national and local government create motivation for developing smart cities and pave the way for large-scale testing of smart city solutions in real-life urban environments.
