Metering & Smart Energy International, an online and print publication covering the smart meter, smart grid and smart energy markets, spoke to Smart Cities Guru Anil Ahuja about his book, Integration of Nature and Technology for Smart Cities. The article covers the topics outlined in his book and his perspective on why smart cities are so important. Ahuja writes:
“Smart cities are a response to the need for cities and people to lower their carbon footprint; infrastructure is designed to meet these goals by enabling us to minimise our use of resources and recycle as much as possible.
As urbanisation increases, we are putting more and more pressure on finite resources. It is important to remember that our resources are not infinite – we have no additional or new resources, other than sun, coming to earth. We are (technically) drinking the same water the dinosaurs drank.”
