We encourage all parties to use KE as a test bed for exploring Smart City development and engage with various stakeholders such as research institutes, academic institutions, the ICT sector, public utility and public transport companies, professional bodies, landowners and developers, property management sector, building owners and car park operators in various projects.
Developing a smart city is an ongoing process. To achieve this, we provided support for smart city-related research projects in their funding application and facilitate liaison between government departments and researchers. Through our support, research subjects including an indoor and outdoor geographic information system for KE, tree risk alert system, air quality prediction system, using data mining techniques to personalise travelling experience and cost benefit analysis framework for future smart city projects have secured funding for their projects in KE.
With our facilitation, CLP Hong Kong Ltd. is also fostering a smart energy community covering some private developments in the KTD Area.
