Megacities are changing and facing new problems and challenges: territorial expansion of the city, growth of dynamics of social and economic processes, increase of environmental risks and risks connected with safety. Where can a rapid-growing megacity find answers to new questions of its development? Technological revolution which changes all spheres of human life offers its solutions. In many cases, these solutions penetrate everyday life by themselves, fully changing established practices and relations. Such a process is observed by us in the sphere of transport and urban planning. Technologies challenge traditional issues and open new prospects and possibilities. Technologies of clear and renewable power engineering determine sustainable future.
Are modern megacities ready for new technological revolution? Which technological solutions are being used by the cities already? Which spheres of city life will change in the nearest future and how the municipal government has to get ready for this?
