Smart Otaniemi

Smart Otaniemi is an energy sector driven ecosystem that connects experts, organisations, technologies, and pilot projects. It is looking at new opportunities for renewing the energy sector in cooperation with other industrial sectors. The projects in the ecosystem couple electricity, district heat, communications, and transportation with energy production and storage to make their combined energy use smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable.

Smart Otaniemi offers sandboxes and playgrounds where energy utilities, ICT sector, building and transportation operators, and service and product providers can co-create and test new services and products together with the citizens.
