Focused on delivering economic resilience and long-term growth through innovation and sustainability, Perth’s smart agenda for the future has started now.

Perth is a leader in the field of smart technology and offers opportunities for purpose-driven investors and corporates. A number of projects are now underway with commitment made to developing solutions that proactively support our position within the Internet of Things. This includes smart mobility, smart energy, industrial IoT, AI and machine learning, as well as bolstering the potential for data centres.

Smart investing is being delivered through the three key pillars of energy, mobility and digital and aims to create added-value through their integration into a single roadmap. Driven by a £300 million City Deal that will leverage ongoing investment and exciting research and development opportunities, the area has committed to increasing business productivity, accelerating decarbonisation, and creating high-worth, sustainable jobs.
