Welcome to Week 5
In the fifth and last week of this course, we are going to see how some financial and business models are emerging in the context of smart cities. The change that has already started, and that will lead in the near future, is based on flexibility and storage. These two concepts will be discussed in this final week. Also, in this unit, we will understand the kind of financing solutions required in a smart city paradigm, in order to ensure an energy-efficient urban development.
At the end of the week, you will find the final project, which consists in analyzing and synthesizing the Smart Grid model of the town or city that you live in.
