Municipality Rhodes, Unesco World Heritage, Region of South Aegean / NUTS II: EL42
Greece

Rhodes is well known Mediterranean island and a tourism destination since the beginning of the 20th century. The majority of employment is forwarded to the service sector mainly tourism related. During summer months the island hosts more than 1.000.000 arrivals in ports, marinas and local airport. The continued growth of travel and trade is constantly raising the bar on demand transportation systems. The required expenditure for the construction of new transport infrastructure so as to meet the growing demand, very often exceed the financial possibilities of governments and public institutions. Thus most needed today are data-rich decision-making tools in promoting mobility services and products. Rhodes aims to become a smart city. We seek to develop initiatives in new energy technologies that are both sustainable and financially attractive. Rhodes’s development strategy is primarily based on the promotion of the sustainable development in the area. We are a signatory at the Covenant of Mayors and a member in the Smart Cities and Communities Stakeholders Platform, supported by the European Commission (EC). The aim is to develop and promote a smart city strategy in order to face specific needs and demands regarding key policy areas, such as sustainable development, environment, energy, public services.
