Qatar is claiming a world first with its eCity project, part of its multi-billion dollar Energy City Qatar (ECQ) development.
Through its alliance with Microsoft, ECQ plans to roll out a series of advanced digital services to residents and visitors to ECQ through an automated IT platform.
At a presentation of the eCity project in Qatar this week, Microsoft and ECQ said the city was the first project of this scale combining digital services for residential and business use. “We will have the first fully integrated e-city of its kind in the region if not in the world,” Hesham Al Emadi, acting CEO energy city Qatar, claimed.
Benefits will include cost reduction, efficiency, and ease of use, Al Emadi said.
