Atlanta, Georgia looks forward to hosting the Global City Teams Challenge + Atlanta Region Smart Energy, Water, and Waste SuperCluster. This event will explore how smart technologies can accelerate sustainable and resilient energy, water, and materials systems in the Atlanta region and in cities around the world. It will present a powerful opportunity for the Atlanta region to ground truth emerging frameworks – and for the Global City Teams Challenge work to benefit from a showcase of Atlanta activities.

The event has two key objectives:

  • The GCTC Energy, Water, and Waste SuperCluster will draft a high-level blueprint of replicable, scalable, and sustainable energy, water, and waste management utilities operating within smart cities. The goal is for this blueprint to be utilized by cities around the world as a way to jumpstart their efforts.

  • The City of Atlanta and other local governments will create a high-level roadmap for smart energy, water, and waste management including interactions with related smart city responsibility areas. This will include key goals, strategies, and leadership commitments.
