Today’s cities are facing many common challenges in the areas of safety, mobility, emissions, accessibility, and congestion. With urban population estimates calculating growth to rise from 54% in 2014 to 66% by 2050, stresses on a city’s services and infrastructure are expected to grow as well.

NextEnergy launched NextChallenge: Smart Cities in 2016 because they think innovation is an important mechanism to proactively address these challenges and identify opportunities for new business models. In its first year, NextChallenge received applications from around the world proposing solutions to create safer, more efficient places for people to live and work with a lower impact on the environment. They can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!
