After months of intensive writing, revisions and editing, we are proud to announce that the Book ‘Personal Data-Smart Cities: How cities can Utilise their Citizen’s Personal Data to Help them Become Climate Neutral‘ produced as part of an EU Smart Cities MarketPlace initiative, led by the Major Cities of Europe, Open and Agile Smart Cities and the DataVaults project, is now available for all interested readers in the Series in Energy Sustainability and Efficiency by River Publishers.

This book sets out to address some of the issues that a smart city needs to overcome to make use of the data currently available to them. How can this be enhanced with emerging technologies that enable a citizen to share their personal data?

It provides answers for those within a smart city, advising their mayors or leaders on introducing new technologies. Addtionally, this book contributes to the new model for the European Data Economy. Through elaborate case studies it shows how a city can offer better services and new revenue streams can occur. Finally, it addresses the challenge of assigning a value on data and concludes by looking at the new emerging technologies that will help cities towards achieving their carbon-neutral targets.
