Smart Site Portfolio and Smart Site Tool published
Can smartness be defined and measured at the site level? And how smart are 2000-watt sites? How can the two concepts of the 2000-watt society and the smart city movement complement and enrich each other? Within the framework of the project “Smart 2000-watt site” novatlantis and the accompanying group have addressed these questions.
- defined a Smart Site Wheel that allows the classification of different measures,
- have compiled a portfolio of measures with many ideas, information and addresses, thus concretizing what “smart” means at site level,
- developed a tool for the self-assessment of an area by sponsors, consultants and planners.
This provides for the first time a basis which
- delivers ideas for possible measures at site level,
- concretizes the concept of a Smart Site,
- helps the project participants to sharpen their ideas about the design of an area,
- is able to comprehensively assess the smartness of an area in all its project phases (planning, implementation, operation),
- serves the documentation of implemented measures.
Smart Site Wheel defines what is meant by the Smart City Wheel Smart City is a term without final definition. The concept is subject to great dynamics. For this reason, the Smart Site Portfolio and the Smart Site self-assessment tool do not represent a self-contained concept, but a first step in the concretization of the term “Smart Site”.
The Smart Site Portfolio (pdf) and the Smart Site Tool (excel-based) can be obtained from the library of the 2000-watt site’s website. Further background information on the documents can be found in the presentation at the IG Smart City, October 30, 2020.
