Juniper Research: Shanghai is world's no 1 smart city for 2022

24/01/2022 04:48 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 24 -- Juniper Research has ranked Shanghai, China, as the world’s number one smart city for 2022.

The other smart cities in the top five ranking are Seoul (South Korea), Barcelona (Spain), Beijing (China) and New York (United States), Juniper Research said in a statement.

It said the smart city rankings were compiled following an extensive study of cities around the globe as published in its latest research, Smart Cities: Key Technologies, Environmental Impact & Market Forecasts 2022-2026.

The ranking of 50 world cities is based on an evaluation of many different aspects of smart cities, covering transportation and infrastructure, energy and lighting, city management and technology, and urban connectivity.

The research particularly lauds Shanghai’s Citizen Cloud as a one-stop point for over 1,000 different services for city residents.

Thanks to the city's rapid deployment of data management platforms, efficient, digitised utility management and public services have become common in many cities across Asia; allowing them to climb Juniper Research’s rankings.

“Many cities have deployed technology and data to help local authorities reduce environmental impact and energy usage,” remarked research co-author Mike Bainbridge.

“The top cities in our recent ranking are finding innovative ways to leverage that technology to deliver observable benefits for their citizens as well,” he added.

Juniper Research provides research and analytical services to the global hi-tech communications sector; providing consultancy, analyst reports and industry commentary.
