Smart cities is an initiative which cuts across a number of sectors including Energy, Waste, Transport, Digital and Health. EDF Energy R&D UK is developing smart cities strategies, business models and projects in the UK in conjunction with a number of Local Authorities, academic and industrial partners and research organisations to identify and showcase routes to a sustainable, connected, low carbon future.
Our smart cities activities encompass decentralised integrated energy, energy storage, smart grids, electric and autonomous transport, Building Information Modelling (BIM), connected homes, new business models such as energy, comfort and mobility as a service and initiatives to tackle fuel poverty and poor standards of living. All underpinned by emerging connected devices, data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) and our experience of delivering projects for international civic authorities such as Singapore.
