Cities face an unprecedented set of pressures to deliver infrastructure that meets the needs of their growing populations. This is set against a backdrop of rising expectations from citizens and businesses, and greater competition between cities looking to attract investment and talent in order to thrive in a globalized society. Urbanization, changing demographics and the need to mitigate and adapt to climate change underline the critical importance of investing in the right infrastructure in our cities. A city needs to be safe, secure and enjoyable to live and work in. The megatrends set a range of challenges for our cities such as keeping people moving, reducing our energy use, ensuring the air we all breathe is clean, using resources wisely and providing sanitation and clean water to everyone. Connected, intelligent and digital cities are emerging to meet these demands more sustainably. This book addresses how cities across the world are tackling these issues now. It draws on the vast experience and knowledge of Siemens in delivering innovative technologies and solutions that are already reaping benefits for cities and their citizens. Meeting the increasing demands of our growing cities, whilst making sure they continue to thrive, inevitably means more electrification, intelligent automation, and the integration of digitalization into our daily lives. Electrification, automation and digitalization are at the heart of Siemens philosophy and will make our cities more prosperous, and more livable. In other words, they will create better cities and a better life for us all.
