Smart Cities: How to move forward

Actualités / Nyhet  | 

Gordon Falconer, Global Director of Smart Cities at Schneider Electric, came to Norway on the 19th of May to hold talks about how smart cities will become reality in a seminar organised by Schneider Electric Norge and the French Norwegian Chamber of Commerce.

"Laws, rules and contracts prevent cities from using technology that is already available. It's not the technology that's wrong, but the complexity of the cities that makes it difficult to use the technology", says Falconer.

Director of Strategy and Business Development in Schneider Electric Norway, Elyette Roux, is very happy with the visit.

"Gordon has become a celebrity as far as urbanization, digitalization and smart cities are concerned. I am very excited that even more people in Norway will benefit from his knowledge. Gordon has not only held talks about smart cities for several years, he has actually been building them from scratch, says Roux.

Falconer has a background as a developer and smart city consultant. He has previously worked as Director of Urban Innovation at Cisco and Managing Director of Strategy and Property at Masdar City in Abu Dhabi. Now the Scot travels around the world in the task of helping cities actually become smarter.
