Zdeněk Židek
Member of the Executive Committee

Zdeněk Židek heads the leading Czech electrical installation company OMEXOM GA Energo, which he co-founded in 1993 and still holds a co-ownership stake in. However, he has devoted his entire professional life to energy. He has been interested in Smart City since 2010. According to him, the awareness of the importance and benefits of Smart City in the Czech Republic is still very low, although the situation is gradually improving. As such, he is actively trying to work in the field of promoting and popularizing Smart City technologies and his efforts culminated in 2017 with the launch of the unique Smart City Polygon technology project. The aim of the project is to show the public what a “smart city” looks like in practice. He is also one of the founding members of the Clever Plzeň Region Cluster, where he understands a Smart City not as the technology itself, but is a new, responsible way of managing the public infrastructure that the technology uses.

Ing. Petr Kaněra
Member of the Executive Committee

Petr Kaněra graduated from the Czech Technical University in Prague, majoring in automation and robotization of technological processes. He has been an executive at KAPEX s.r.o. Since 2008, which he founded. He has devoted almost his entire professional life to the environment, especially project management in waste management.

The Czech Smart City Cluster considers it an ideal platform for sharing experiences and exchanging views between academia, the public sector and businesses.
