C40 on AOL Energy Part 2

In the second installment of the AOL Energy series on cities, C40 Director Mike Marinello joined Peter Gardett, Managing Editor of AOL Energy and Andrew Kinross, Director at Navigant Consulting to explore the information generated by a “smart city.”

Increasingly, cities are implementing technologies to streamline their infrastructure and planning systems to make them function more intelligently. From there, the panelists emphasized, cities can use data from these systems to evaluate and make them even more efficient. What’s more, Marinello pointed out, sharing data between cities – which is done in the C40 – can allow cities “to compare themselves with other cities, and then use that data to seek collaboration and conversation about how to do things better,” creating positive feedback.
