"This is not only an important technology for the city of Leuven, but for many cities in Flanders and far beyond. It works, it is proven, so the technology can also be exported abroad. That is important for the region."
"Sustainable urban development is very close to the heart of an institution like KBC. It has a great deal of experience in providing friendly, reliable and convenient solutions that make customers' lives easier. This experience was very useful in developing a model that could handle both the settlement of transactions and data. KBC was selected as a trusted party because of its regulatory expertise and knowledge of blockchain applications.
"The Digital City Pole of Tres fits completely within the story of being able to integrate charging points for electric cars in the digital lighting poles.
The Flemish government makes such an initiative possible through the energy spearhead cluster FLUX50. This initiative of TRES is a warm call to all application builders to work together with local governments and citizens to create a liveable city and municipality."
Enterprise said, "This ambitious project is a great example of the innovation potential that can be realized by connecting smart infrastructure through private wireless networks. In Leuven, the traditional streetlight now has the potential to transform into smart infrastructure - improving not only its own performance, but also future public facilities and services of the city that contribute to a sustainable digital society."
