This case study is based on a project developed in Enel X Italy.
Open Data is data that can be freely accessed by anyone. Enel X is committed to transforming this data into valuable information that can be used to build a circular city, rather than just information.
As part of this effort, Enel X has launched a new initiative in Italy to provide useful indicators to support the sustainable evolution of cities from data. The indicators, calculated from Open Data collected from public sources and scientifically validated to ensure maximum coverage and consistency across all Italian municipalities, are an effective tool for municipalities to plan urban development based on objective information on infrastructure, mobility, and services.
We have also developed City Analytics, a platform for municipalities that integrates and analyzes a vast amount of information (all fully compliant with privacy laws), including not only Open Data, but also connected devices, installed Enel X solutions, and other Big Data.
Using City Analytics, we partnered with HERE Technologies, a digital mapping company, to create Mobility Maps, which were made available free of charge to citizens in Spain, Italy, and Brazil during the Covid-19 pandemic and the recovery phase from the pandemic.
