Cities are becoming smarter and therefore more sustainable. The future of urban spaces is green, digital and connected. This optimistic development is made possible by technologies which are not optimized for their own sake, but are put at the service of society.

This paradigm shift is giving rise to inspiring images of the future that, despite an increasing population, portray cities as places with a high quality of life.

This thought-provoking path into a new future is wonderfully portrayed in the latest documentary "Putting the smart into Cities". How is e-mobility evolving and how does sector coupling for smart energy systems will influence urban places in the future? Curious?

Then tune in from minute 16.45 onwards when CharIN`s contribution is put into spotlight. Needless to say, that is worth watching the entire documentary of the renowned Institute of Civil Engineers and it's numerous partners across the globe.
