SmartCity Bærum is a 5 year program under Future Cities.  The goal is to reduce energy use and climate gas emissions through projects and cooperation between local industry and municipality. The main idea is to limit climate gas emissions through development of new technology, routines and organization to implement “green” solutions, while simultaneously promoting a more environmentally friendly and profitable local industry.  - We have received a good response from industry, organizations and the municipality.  There are already 14 members of SmartCity, and more have shown interest.  This makes me very happy, says mayor Lisbeth Hammer Krog.

One of the seven first projects is an EV car sharing project to be operated by Move About.
