Green Rooftop Monitoring for World Bank Delegation

Green Rooftop Monitoring for World Bank Delegation


Sobolt presented our green rooftop monitoring project, performed with the Municipality of Rotterdam, to those participating in the Smart Cities Study Tour. Sobolt found 300,000 square meters of green rooftops in Rotterdam. Using advanced AI algorithms, Sobolt calculates the water buffering capacity of these rooftops as well as the water buffering potential of optimal green rooftop placement.


The Smart Cities Study Tour aims to showcase Dutch expertise in sustainable urban planning and smart mobility to international representatives of the World Bank. Every year, the Study Tour offers a combination of deep-dive style workshops, peer-to-peer exchanges and site visits across the country. This year, the Study Tour was organized by Smart Cities KSB, the Global Smart City Partnership program and the Embassy of The Netherlands, with the support of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. We were honored to speak with the diverse delegation in the beautiful Rotterdam Towers.


For many of the delegates, using AI in sustainable urban development is a new and exciting concept.  Green rooftops offer potential solutions to a variety of urban issues, all of which the delegate cities recognize. We are looking forward to expanding our green urban solutions across the world and investing in these new relationships!
