Smart City Living Labs - 
The Real Thing, or Fun Bling?

Check out our latest blog.
Living labs are all the rage right now. From Barcelona to San Jose to Seoul, every smart city has a living lab, aiming to drive innovation and city improvement. But what have these labs delivered? Are they the real deal, or a shiny distraction?
This blog faces up to these questions, sharing insights about living lab success and failure from around the world. Australia is just now jumping onto the living lab bandwagon. Time to reality check this innovation paradigm, and make sure we are smart players.

International Collaboration - 

Talking Smart Cities with the Spanish Ambassador

The Delos Delta team recently met with the Spanish Ambassador, his Excellency Manuel Cacho Quesada, to explore smart city collaboration between Spain and Australia.  

Spain has been a smart tech leader for many years, and Australia is an emerging force.  There are great opportunities to expand Spanish-Australian smart city investment, partnership, trade and research into the future.  

The Spanish Ambassador was delighted to hear that his compatriot, Mr Joaquim Alvarez, would be visiting Australia in March 2019 to share his digital transformation expertise.  More Training Information

We look forward to further discussions and collaboration with our Spanish counterparts in 2019 and beyond.  A warm thank you from Delos Delta to the Ambassador and his team for their hospitality.  

Round 2, Smart Cities and Suburbs Program


The Delos Delta team is proud to have helped Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council and Maribyrnong City Council secure funding for their fantastic smart city projects.

Well done to our many clients who also received grants: Randwick City Council, Logan City Council, Lake Macquarie City Council, Wyndham City Council, and Wollondilly Shire Council.

Big thanks again to the Australian Government for their leadership.

How Australia Fell Behind, and How we Can Get Back on Track - 

The Smart Meter Revolution!

New Zealand has 73% smart electricity meter penetration, compared to around 30% in Australia! It's like the Rugby Union all over again! We can't have smart cities without universal smart meters! This is a public policy priority for Australia. We need to get moving, and much faster!

Check out the new Policy Paper by Delos Delta and Topfer & Associates.

Smart Cities Week 

In November, nine winners of the Smart Cities Awards 2018 were announced at Australia's first Smart Cities Week in Sydney.

From everyone at Delos Delta,

Thank you to our clients, partners and supporters for a fantastic 2018!
