City of Stavanger

STAVANGER KOMMUNE

Smart City solution

Stavanger was the first Norwegian city to establish a smart city office and decide upon a smart city roadmap. With close to 200 open datasets, infrastructure for sensor-technology, and an emphasis on citizen involvement, the west-coast city Stavanger is taking the lead in building Norway’s smartest city.
There is established an innovation infrastructure with open data, free wifi, and wireless LoRaWAN net-work. On top of that, we have services like EV charging in lampposts, smart waste management, and connected utility holes.
But we are aware that smarty cities are all about people. That is why we say that the smart city equals democracy — transparency, co-creation, and solutions that benefit our citizens. In Stavanger, being a smart city is all about working differently internally and together with our citizens.

City goals/challenges

Our smart city work aims to create a more diversified business landscape in Stavanger. Many people know Stavanger as “the oil and gas capital,” but in the last years, we’ve seen a shift in Stavanger’s trajectory towards a greener economy.

We are to reduce our Co2-emissions by 80 % by 2030. Most of the emissions in the city come from road traffic, cruise tourism, energy use in buildings, and industry and construction.

To reach our goals, we’re aware that we need to change the way we work in the public sector. That means more cross-sectoral collaboration, citizen involvement, and experimenting with new technology that can make the lives of our citizens better.
