City 2.0 is about realizing the various aspects and tasks of the municipality as far as possible through information and communication technology. This applies equally to energy distribution and billing, waste disposal and transportation, traffic, building management, citizen protection and safety, street lighting, general administrative tasks, and much more.
In City 2.0, there is an integration of information technology into urban operations to better match supply and demand. This includes the use of microgrids, a widespread, interconnected Internet of Things( IoT) of sensors, resources, mobile devices and data centers. These smart technologies can ensure high availability where and when resources are needed, reducing unused surplus and waste.
