Solutions for Smart Cities
Cities are increasingly becoming “urban villages” that meet the residents’ desire for identity and a local lifestyle. Their inhabitants must rely on infrastructure and buildings that are sustainable just as much as people-oriented transport and mobility, efficient city management, and safety and security.
Smart, digital technologies provide the key to creating livable, adaptable, accessible, and sustainable urban communities and buildings.
What are Smart Cities?
A smart city is a municipality that uses information and communication technologies (ICT) to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve both the quality of government services and citizen welfare.
A smart city is an intelligent city that integrates digital technologies into its networks, services and infrastructure. It means smart urban transportation networks, upgraded water supply and waste disposal facilities and more efficient ways to light and aircondition buildings.

At Electrocon, we help authorities, planners, investors, and residents co-create an innovative, sustainable, and adaptive infrastructure for their smart cities. Our end-to-end solutions make it possible to merge urban planning, ecology, and information technology to improve the lives of citizens – with microgrids and buildings that leverage data and artificial intelligence for the local generation of renewable energy, for energy and resource optimization, and for a powerful e-mobility charging infrastructure.
Smart city is envisaged to have four pillars, its Social Infrastructure, Physical Infrastructure, Institutional Infrastructure (including Governance) and Economic Infrastructure. The centre of attention for each of these pillars is the citizen.
Smart Cities seek to improve people’s lives in such basic areas as policy efficiency, reducing waste and everyday problems, improving social and economic quality, and maximising the social inclusion of their inhabitants.
Smart cities offer better use of space, less traffic, cleaner air, and more efficient civic services, all of which increases quality of life. What’s more, smart cities provide more career and economic opportunities as well as stronger links with the community.
