Join us at Smart Cities Summit in Mumbai on February 10-11, 2016.
The Smart Cities Council is offered, as part of Infrastructure Week, a joint session with Readiness Challenge Winners Nashville, TN and Orange County, FL, on how communities can use community-scale data to bolster their economic, social, and environmental resilience. Cutting edge solutions that help communities use data to meet these needs will also be presented by Neighbourlytics, State of Place, and Xylem.
Orange County Florida is a 2021 Winner of the Smart Cities Council Readiness Challenge. The winning project has three goals: First, reduce the contribution to carbon emissions caused by its building assets. Secondly, make these building assets safer and healthier for occupants. Third, use the Smart Cities Council's Readiness Program to increase the solutions considered during the 'scoping' phase of the pre-procurement process. The initial focus will be on the Orange County Convention Center ('OCCC') (the 2nd largest in the US) by inviting innovative solutions.
In this Readiness Program online session, held on Thursday April 29, Orange County, Florida Chief Sustainability and Resilience Officer, Jeff Benavides discusses the current requirements for the country's second largest convention center.

*Goals and metrics
Our Partners at GovWin discuss how the Biden Administration is likely to provide a very different environment for businesses providing all types of “smart” services, and this holds particularly true not just in the federal contracting world, but also for contractors seeking to do business with cities and other state and local governments.

Welcome to the Readiness Guide. This online document was assembled with input from many of the world’s leading smart city practitioners – the members and advisors of the Smart Cities Council. It will help you create a vision for the future of your own city. Equally important, it will help you build an action plan to get to that better future.
The first goal of the Readiness Guide is to give you a “vision” of a smart city, to help you understand how technology will transform the cities of tomorrow.
The second goal is to help you construct your own roadmap to that future. It suggests the goals to which you should aspire, the features and functions you should specify, the best practices that will gain you the maximum benefits for the minimum cost, at reduced risk.
The Readiness Guide is intended for mayors, city managers, city planners and their staffs. It helps cities help themselves by providing objective, vendor-neutral information to make confident, educated choices about the technologies that can transform a city.
Cities around the world are already making tremendous progress in achieving economic, environmental and social sustainability, in export-based initiatives and in the creation of 21st century jobs. All of these are excellent ways to improve city living standards and economies. The concept of smart cities doesn’t compete with these efforts. Instead, smart city technologies can support and enhance work already underway.
