Preliminary Literature Review on the Roles of Smart City Technologies for Energy Policy Making in a Policy Cycle Howard Cheung, Leo K C Chan, Nancy C Y Wong



To examine the development of smart city technologies to support energy policy development for carbon neutrality, a preliminary literature review was performed to categorize literature of smart city technologies based on their relevance to various stages of policy cycles of energy policies. The study was conducted by Sub-keyword Synonym Searching with keywords of smart city technologies between 2016 and 2020 and stages of policy cycles. The results showed that hot topics in smart city technologies such as circular economy, big data, circular economy, energy water nexus and microgrids are well investigated, but there was a lack of smart city technologies to support the agenda-setting process of energy policy development and a lack of development in smart city technologies directly related to policies such as smart building and smart city framework.

Keywords Smart Energy, Smart City, Policy Making, Smart Tool, Smart Government
