The smart city is already here. It’s not just a theory or a long-term project for the conventional city. Governments, businesses and citizens have gone to work to come up with connected environments that meet the five necessary conditions for their development: smart energy, smart mobility, smart grids, smart buildings and smart customers.
Communication among experts can generate ideas that contribute to the creation of the smart city. We launched our Digital Expert Relation Programme at the end of 2016 in order to research these five areas in depth, a commitment to sharing that is making it possible to open company projects to outside experts and share our expertise in electric mobility and the cities of the future.
We have launched almost twenty unique experiments since the programme was created where experts in different aspects of the smart city have been able to test the advantages of new uses of energy in our houses, cars and cities, and discuss the latest advances in the area.
Digital Expert Relation Programme Experiments
In its search for efficiency and sustainability, the activities undertaken under the Digital Expert Relation Programme and the #EndesaChallenges campaign have brought together some of the most important voices on the digital horizon. These are just some of the goals that the programme has set for us:
In the field of sustainable mobility, we have experienced the first and second 'Revival of the electric car in Spain', we have learned about the 'ecaR' charger network in Mallorca and discovered conventional transport alternatives such as bicycles and electric scooters in the '#TwenergyRace'.
“Electric cars are not a thing of the future, but a very present reality.”
Arancha Pato, director of the digital portals Auto10 and Motorlife
Workshops on smart cities such as 'IoT&Startups' and '#SmartWomen' have demonstrated to their various attendees how to change cities via the Internet of Things, sustainable architecture, big data, environmental planning and workspace innovation.
Sustainability has also been one of the pillars of the programme; in the workshop "Circular economy, sustainable tourism and conservation of biodiversity" we revealed sustainability as an engine of change, thanks to alternative uses of electricity pylons and artificial reef parks created using leftover materials from the thermal power plant at Sant Adrià de Besòs
“These projects are important because they publicise sustainable programmes that will protect the environment and responsible tourism, two areas very much experiencing a boom due to their fundamental nature.”

At 'TAT Granada 2018' we saw that promoting real emotions above fake news is one of the principal challenges for ensuring that communication between experts generates ideas that can be used in creating the smart city. This is the objective of the Digital Expert Relation Programme and its experts. Are you interested?
