The city council of Albacete, within its Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI), needed to deploy an air quality monitoring system using sensors to monitor the levels of air pollution and environmental noise control in the city and thus achieve one of its strategic objectives of reducing pollution levels in the city.
The monitoring network registers the main parameters to alert when any of them are altered through a notification system and thus help decision-making. In the same way, it will contribute to the fulfilment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
In addition, it provides greater transparency for the population as it includes visible information panels that will inform citizens in real-time of the different indicators measured in a simple and intuitive way, as well as in the Environment section of the municipal website.
The project involves an investment of €271,764, 80% of which is financed with European funds through the Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy (EDUSI) supported by ERDF funds.
