"Smart Cities – Europe’s NOBEL prize

I often blog about the capacity of ICT to change lives for the better, and make a real difference on the ground. Here’s one very solid example of where it’s saved energy, saved public money, and empowered people to take control: the pioneering NOBEL project

Nothing to do with the Prize – it refers to the Neighbourhood Oriented Brokerage ELectricity and monitoring system.
