Iskraemeco is excited to join forces with the Municipality of Kranj and other consortium partners on the implementation of one of the most significant smart city projects in Slovenia.

A settlement near Kranj was chosen as the pilot area for the digitization of the city, the introduction of advanced smart city infrastructure, and upgrading water, electricity and gas metering systems.

Iskraemeco and a consortium* of partners have been working according to the Kranj Municipality guidelines, accelerating the implementation of the Smart Energy & Water, Environment Monitoring & Sustainability, Smart Lighting, and Smart Traffic solutions.

Kranj - Smart City for Citizens and Municipality

The final pilot solution of the Smart City project will enable the collection of data from smart meters (electricity, gas, water) and smart sensors, further display of the data in an intuitive and user-friendly way, and its in-depth analysis.
