Amsterdam Smart City is a unique cooperation between the citizens of Amsterdam, businesses and
authorities in order to illustrate how energy can be saved, now and in the future. Together we’re
developing smart projects that will change the world, but we test them first in Amsterdam.
The project was initiated by Liander and the Amsterdam Innovation Motor (AIM) and since then a
rapidly increasing number of new partners has joined. We hope many more will follow.
Amsterdam Smart City focuses on innovative technology, sustainable economic investments and
changing the behavior of the people in Amsterdam. Our partners and small-scale local projects allow
us to test these initiatives
The best practices of these projects will be implemented on a larger scale, allowing us to create a
catalyst for climate and energy programs. The ultimate goal of these projects is the reduction of CO2
emissions on an Amsterdam, national and European scale.
Over the next two years a large number of projects will be implemented in the ASC focus areas
Working, Living, Mobility and Public Space. The first three areas are each responsible for
approximately one third of the total CO2 emissions of the city. The municipality of Amsterdam itself
will also reduce its energy use and adopt modern energy saving technologies where possible. All
knowledge and experience that is gained during the projects will be shared with other cities,
nationally and internationally.
Amsterdam Smart City will become more and more visible during the next two year. The partners
invite you to have a look at various initiatives in Amsterdam.
