Tomorrow’s Digital Cities will be the product of today’s dreams. Important elements in the creation of Smart Cities are the development of cohesive open telecommunication and software architecture, which will underpin the citizen-centric applications. These applications will also be applied in areas of national interest and social need, such as E-Health, Smart Energy and E-Education. The building blocks upon which smart cities will be created include smart and renewable energy; next-generation networks; smart buildings; smart transport and smart governance. To meet the goals of a smart city in supporting a sustainable high-quality lifestyle for citizens, a smart city needs a smart grid. In this way, this Faculty Development Programme likes to address the various renewable energy and smart grid technologies support in transforming the present cities to Smart Cities.
