Smart Cities Become Much More Ambitious

Trillions of dollars on reinvented energy, food, water, transport, sensing, multipurpose materials.
The expenditure on new technologies for emerging smart cities will pass one trillion dollars yearly. That is the subject of this webinar.
It shares some of the research carried out by PhD level multilingual IDTechEx analysts worldwide for their new overview report on smart city technologies with 35 forecasts. Learn how these technologies will enable smart cities to be independent in power, food and water and enjoy completely reinvented transport. Simplification will be key as we face elimination of sewerage, fuel, vehicle charging and other systems, even sidewalks and traffic accidents. Separate farming partly disappears as it vanishes into multipurpose smart buildings made of new multifunctional smart materials. For instance, vertically farm and grow meat without animals. Discover how, with rising sea levels and many cities already on large rivers or in the sea, food, electricity production and travel involving water get more important. On the other hand, new cities being planned in deserts must get clever to find and retain water. Like the report, this webinar is the antidote to smart city approaches that obsess about the information and communication technology aspect and miss the many bigger markets for new technologies emerging in smart cities.
Please complete the survey at the end of the webinar and you get the detailed slides full of surprises.
The webinar is based on the contents of the new IDTechEx report, "Smart Cities Market 2021-2041: Energy, Food, Water, Materials, Transportation Forecasts".
