Real Smart Cities
The paper of Anna Strzelecka et al. (2017) presents one of the results of the EU BlueSCities project: the methodology for the integration of the water and waste sectors within the ’Smart Cities and Communities’ concept to compliment other priority areas such as energy, transport and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The result, i.e. the City Blueprint Framework for water and waste and the City Amberprint Framework for energy, transport and ICT are presented for the City of Leicester. The combination of the City Blueprint and City Amberprint provides an integrated picture of the current performance of a city, whereas the focus on Energy, Transport and ICT only, is not particularly smart at all (see Figure 5 and Table 2 of this publication) .
