APPG for smart cities
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Smart Cities brings together Parliamentarians with the British academics, NGOs, businesses and local governments that are leading the global smart cities revolution. The APPG aspires to raise awareness of the many issues associated with Smart Cities, and provide a platform for stakeholders from different sectors to collaborate and share best practices.
The Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) is the leading decentralised energy advocate, focused on creating a more cost effective, efficient and user-orientated energy system.
Eurocities is the network of major European cities. Our members are the elected local and municipal governments of major European cities. Their objective is to reinforce the important role that local governments should play in a multilevel governance structure. They aim to shape the opinions of Brussels stakeholders and ultimately shift the focus of EU legislation in a way which allows city governments to tackle strategic challenges at local level.
