In 2014, at the World Smart Cities awards in Barcelona, the City of Copenhagen won the award for ‘best project,’ for ‘Copenhagen Connecting’ which gathers and uses data to create a greener city, heighten the quality of life and an even better investment climate.
The jury explained that ‘Copenhagen Connecting’ constituted “innovative urban management driven by socio-economic priorities built on open standards and focusing on the use of real-time data from the whole city and its services to constantly adapt citywide operations to the needs of the city’s inhabitants.”
Copenhagen continues to lead the way with smart city technology deployment. By installing sensors on waste bins, the city determined that 70 percent of waste bin ’empties’ were unnecessary.
