Currently, cities occupy only 3% of the Earth’s land, but are responsible for two-thirds of the world’s energy demand and 70% of CO2 emissions. They are also the engines of global economic growth, accounting for more than 80% of GDP generated worldwide. One thing is clear, cities must do more with less by taking advantage from technology.
The FIWARE4Cities booklet aims to help cities understand the potential of open source technology and open common standards. It’s a state-of-the-art of how FIWARE helps cities to build their smart city project by using open-source technologies and open common standards.
FIWARE is up and running in more than 200 cities more than 30 countries worldwide and the booklet dives into 36 of them.
