2 European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities Supporting Europe's cities in getting smarterDG CONNECT, DG MOVE , DG ENER initiativeThe European Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities and Communities combines Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), energy management and transport management to come up with innovative solutions to the major environmental, societal and health challenges facing European cities today.With the aim of coming up with scalable and transferable solutions to contribute to the EU’s 20/20/20 climate action goals, it looks to reduce high energy consumption, green-house-gas emissions, bad air quality and congestion of roads.The Partnership aims to overcome bottlenecks impeding the changeover to smart cities, to co-fund demonstration projects and to help coordinate existing city initiatives and projects, by pooling its resources together.It ultimately looks to establish strategic partnerships between industry and European cities to develop the urban systems and infrastructures of tomorrow.

9 Methodologies for the assessment of the environmental impact of ICT: Out of the research program (enabling effect of ICT):GrTransport sector -> Methodology to evaluate the impacts of ITC/ITS measures on mobility, vehicle energy consumption and CO2 emissions (2013)Buildings -> The ICT PSP methodology for energy savings measurement (2011)Out of standardization organizationsL1400 series: methodologies for the assessment of the environmental impact of ICT:L1410: Goods Networks and ServicesL1420: OrganizationsL1430: Projects*L1440: CitiesUnder ITU-T SG5: Environment and climate change - WP3 Q18L.1400 : Overview and general principles of methodologies for assessing the environmental impact of information and communicationVery active involvement of the EC with many contributions in all methodologies (GNS, organizations, projects), physical presence, e-meeting presence and finally accepting the chief editor role for the Cities methodology.In 2012 the EC facilitated the piloting of various methodologies* among which ITU-T L.1410, ETSI and ITU-T L Thereafter a request for a joint ITU-ETSI deliverable around GNS was introduced.Joint Methodology for Environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of information and communication (ICT) goods, networks and services.Chief editor for L.ICT in Cities .Following work under this FG SSCCo-organizing with ITU-T some of the sessions at the Green Standards Week in Paris September 2012, in Genoa June 2014.Also following activities in other areas like Q17, Q16.
