“The challenges we face are growing with the size of the cities” Cities all over the world are expanding rapidly with more and more people moving away from the countryside. The number of people living in cities worldwide is already greater than those living in rural areas. By the end of the century, it is estimated that this number will account for almost three quarters of the world’s population.


“We must find answers, worldwide, to questions surrounding mobility, public infrastructure, energy consumption, pollutant emissions and quality of life. ” The challenges we face are growing with the size of the cities. We must therefore ask ourselves today how we are going to deal with global urbanisation, what opportunities it offers us and how we want to deal with the tasks associated with it.

“Cities will need to play a major role in realizing development goals” 2016 is a pivotal year for addressing sustainable urban development. After the adoption in 2015 of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on tackling climate change, the Third United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) represents a key opportunity for operationalizing international development goals and pushing them further towards implementation at all levels. Urban development is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. Without strong engagement at the local level, there is a good risk that more than 65% of all the targets may fail to be achieved. Cities will need to play a major role in realizing the international community’s development goals. For the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Metropolitan Solutions 2016 is the © Photothek/BMZ

place and time to discuss these questions in Germany. That is why – together with the Federal State of Berlin – we are hosting the German Habitat Forum on 1 and 2 June 2016 as part of this conference event.

of German development policy. In 2016 we will be laying the groundwork for our future engagement. Three core tasks constitute the main focus of our agenda:

how that future will be secured in the next 20 years. The Habitat III preparatory process started in September 2014 and will continue until the third session of the Preparatory Committee for the Habitat III Conference in Surabaya, Indonesia, in July 2016. During this period, 11 regional and thematic meetings have been held all over the world, mobilizing national and local governments and stakeholders. The Habitat III policy units, that have since submitted their recommendations, were an exercise built on the work of the UN Task Team on Habitat III and the elaboration of the Issue Papers. A crucial step in the preparatory process, the Open-ended Informal Consultative Meetings, held 25–29 April 2016 at the UN Headquarters, offered an opportunity for member states and stakeholders to offer feedback on the conclusions of the Policy Units and the regional and thematic meetings. In his opening statement on the first day of the meetings, Habitat III Secretary-General Joan Clos expressed sympathy and support for Ecuador in light of the earthquake that

Smart Cities in Asia Asian metropolisies are pacemakers in digitization and urban development. Text: Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin

The Asia-Pacific region homes the majority of the world’s biggest and fastest gro-wing urban areas. Simultaneously it is a region confronted with unique challenges concerning making use of tight resources and energy. So it does not come as a surprise that the topic “Smart City” plays a central role in the city development in this region today and in the future. Making cities brisk with life, more intelligent, re-sourceful and more efficient, but most of all more livable is the aim here. The term “Smart City” stems from the urban design concepts of the 90s. They were researching planning strategies in connection with smart growth. Today the term is mostly used in connection with IT-technologies. At the end of the 20th century Asian countries already began supporting urban districts financially but also spatially. Solutions for urban problems such as scarcity of resources and population growth were to be found. “Smart” Cities, in our perception, are well functioning organisms, which will also be vital and livable for future generations. They are resilient and adaptive for great challenges ranging from

Asia-Pacific-Weeks: Connecting Europe with Asia The Asia-Pacific Weeks (APW) annually invite leading experts to Berlin for an exchange with an economic region with highest growth-rates and a notable influence on the global future. Since 1997 the Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin (APW) have offered a unique European platform for an interdisciplinary, European-Asian dialogue with players from various fields, enabling debates on globally relevant subjects like smart cities, industry 4.0, digitalization, start-ups, their innovations. In 2016 the APW takes place from May 23rd through to June 3rd in Berlin. Under the title „Asia-Europe Innovation Dialogue“, this year’s focus is on Startups and their facilitative, innovative ecosystems.

Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländern.

Gerade in den wirtschaftlich dynamischen Ländern in Osteuropa, Asien, Afrika und Lateinamerika können heutige Nischenmärkte, wie zum Beispiel Energieeffizienz, regenerative Energieerzeugung und Umwelttechnologie künftig großes Wachstumspotential entwickeln. Deshalb ist es von

Die Internationalisierung, gerade in bisher wenig erschlossene Märkte, stellt für jedes Unternehmen eine Herausforderung dar – unabhängig von seiner Größe. Das globale Wirtschaftswachstum wird zukünftig vor allem in den Entwicklungs- und Schwellenländern stattfinden. Für die internationale Wirtschaft gelten Entwicklungsländer daher zunehmend als attraktive Absatzmärkte und Investitionsziele. Die Geschäftstätigkeit in diesen wirtschaftlich vielversprechenden, aber politisch und sozial oftmals sensiblen Regionen, bedeutet für die Unternehmen ein erhöhtes Risikomanagement. Bei der Erschließung von Auslandsmärkten spielt die Finanzierung von Export- und Investitionsvorhaben, das Financial Engineering, eine zentrale Rolle. Unternehmen, die sich Märkte im Ausland erschließen möchten, haben einige Möglichkeiten der Mittelbeschaffung. Die Bandbreite reicht von klassischer Exportfinanzierung über innovativ strukturierte Projektfinanzierung bis zur Nutzung von Finanzierungs-Programmen der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit.

Internationale Finanzierungsinstitutionen und Entwicklungsbanken stellen in den weniger industrialisierten Ländern in erheblichem Umfang Finanzmittel für die Stadtentwicklungsprojekte bereit. Die aus den Ausschreibungs- und Förderprogrammen resultierenden Aufträge eröffnen vielfältige Exportchancen, sowohl für Consulting Unternehmen als auch für Herstellerfirmen. Zu nennen sind

besonderem Interesse, diese Zukunftsmärkte frühzeitig zu erschließen und dabei die Aktivitäten der Entwicklungsorganisationen als Baustein und Multiplikator mit in die Markteintrittsstrategie einzubeziehen. Die Entwicklungsorganisationen Die Märkte des ehemaligen Ostblocks, seien es die neuen EU-Mitglieder, die Länder der Balkanregion oder die Nachfolgestaaten der Sowjetunion, liegen für deutsche Unternehmen sozusagen vor der Haustür. Von den verschiedenen EU-Förderinstrumenten, auch für deutsche Unternehmen nutzbar sind, oder den Projektfinanzierungen der European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) mit Sitz in London können deutsche Exporteure profitieren. Die einzelnen Maßnahmen werden oftmals durch Co-Finanzierungen der Europäischen Investitionsbank (EIB) ergänzt. Die Region Asien-Pazifik ist mit Abstand die größte Wachstumsregion weltweit. Sie nimmt zunehmend größeren Anteil am globalen Wirtschaftsgeschehen. Die Weltbank-Gruppe in Washington (IBRD und IDA) und die Asiatische Entwicklungsbank (ADB) mit Sitz in Manila sind an der Finanzierung einer Vielzahl von Projekten beteiligt. Lateinamerika ist seit Jahrzehnten ein lohnender Markt für Exporteure. Die Kreditvergaben der Interamerikanischen Entwicklungsbank (IDB), die ihren Sitz ebenso wie die Weltbank in Washington hat, dienen vor allem dem Aufbau der sozialen und technischen Infrastruktur. Der afrikanische Kontinent hat für deutsche Exporteure zwar volumenmäßig eine geringe Bedeutung, er sollte jedoch in der Vertriebskonzeption nicht außer Acht gelassen werden.

Projekte im öffentlichen Sektor nur mit finanzieller Beteiligung von multilateralen Entwicklungsbanken oder über die bilaterale Entwicklungshilfe realisiert werden. Die Projektleitung liegt immer bei den nationalen Behörden; Ausschreibung und finanzielle Abwicklung unterliegen aber den Richtlinien der jeweils engagierten Entwicklungsbank. Unternehmen, die eine solche Ausschreibung gewinnen und ihre Waren dann z.B. in ein afrikanisches Land liefern, haben dadurch einen großen Vorteil: Sie können sich darauf verlassen, dass nach der Lieferung oder Leistung auch ein Zahlungseingang

Smart Cities Magazine Smart Cities Magazine is a brand new Portuguese magazine. Focused on the Smart Cities market, this publication provides an extended overview and journalistic analysis of sustainable cities projects, challenges and solutions. Within

its pages, the reader can read up-to-date information concerning ICT developments, environmental needs, health and education trends, energy and urban mobility management or examples of social innovation. Presenting international and national case studies, Smart Cities Magazine was launched in July,1st, 2014. The project also includes a news website with daily updates. The magazine, first of its kind in Portugal, is produced by the Portuguese publisher MediaLine

Viessmann Eis-Energiespeicher GmbH „Heating with ice“ has by and by developed to one of the most efficient and most profitable technologies using renewable energy for heating and cooling. The ice energy storage system by Viessmann Eis-Energiespeicher GmbH provides

energy to heatpumps using a simple method: energy provided by the sun, extracted from the air and geothermal heat is either transmitted directly to the heatpump or buffered in the ice energy storage. Thus no energy gets lost and is ready for use, when needed. Using that method, the cold ambient temperatures of the winter can be used for cooling demands in summer – and the other way around. The ice storage is acting as an energy-manager and balances out seasonal fluctuations in the natural energy supply. Using water as the storage medium and it doesn’t cause any impact to the environment. It can be used anywhere and does not require any official permits. One specific characteristic of the ice energy storage system is the use of crystallisation energy. This additional energy, released during phase change from liquid to solid, is equivalent to the amount of energy which is needed to heat water from 0 to 80 degrees Celsius. By repeating the process of freezing and thawing the water in the tank, this additional amount of energy is available multiple times during one heating period. More than 100 large-scale plants, configured to individual requirements, are already implemented in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Swiss and the Netherlands. The number of different areas of application covered with the ice energy storage system is large: ranging from supermarkets, apartment buildings and public institutions over company buildings, production sites to low temperature local heating network solutions. Individual simulation of each system allows it to be optimally sized and ensures that all on-site conditions are taken into account. In close collaboration with expert planners, we specify the scope of services, project the sizes of components and define, which system modules are relevant for each case. At the agreed time, all components are delivered and installed in accordance with the defined scope of services.


The active monitoring of energy sources is the most important component for ensuring reliability of operation and efficiency of the ice energy storage system. The aim of this management is firstly to supply the heat pump with the highest possible average brine inlet temperature during the heating season. Thereby the amount of electric energy required by the heat pump can be minimized. Accordingly the heat pump efficiency is at the best possible rate which means that costs will be reduced. Taking into account specific seasonal requirements placed on the energy source, weather conditions and the individual use of a building, experts are managing a plant to get the best out of it. The success speaks for itself. Projects using an ice energy storage system have won more than 30 environmental and innovation awards in recent years.

Metropolitan Solutions interactive Inspiring collective thinking on how to create better cities - that is the goal of the interactive channels of Metropolitan Solutions for its visitors. There are many ways to share ideas and opinions at Metropolitan Solutions 2016. Each of the more than 26 conferences and workshops is offering time and space to discuss with the experts arriving from all over the world to Berlin. But not only Twitter and Facebook will provide additional opportunities to share and comment results of the debates at this year’s “MetSol”. In addition an own website will bring all all the different perspectives, expertise, policies, experience and knowledge together to find collective insights on how cities can be made more liveable.
