The Public-Private-Partnership that we are particularly proud of, is with the Municipality of The Hague, where Eneco, Eurofiber and PwC will research and develop a Living Labs environment in the Scheveningen area. This enables the city of The Hague to be more accessible, livable and attractive.
Together with the Municipality of The Hague we will facilitate a smart city infrastructure based on smart city hubs. These hubs offer the opportunity to market parties to deliver all sorts of applications, starting with public lighting. As an Urban Operator, Eneco rents out spaces in the hub to these market parties, who will use this space to place their sensors and deliver the applications. A party who for example wants to offer public WIFI or 5G, can place his routers or small cells. Another party in the area of safety-solutions will likely deliver noise sensors and a service to connect to emergency services as soon as suspicious noise has been detected. Even charging stations for electric cars are possible!
By developing the Living Labs environment, The Hague, Eneco, Eurofiber and PwC will be unique partners in the Netherlands with a proven concept in the smart city domain. It is a unique project because of its open environment, the combination with urban development, business opportunities and the Public Private Partnership.
We will announce the latest details on Smart City Expo, so make sure to stay in touch!
