Summary/Abstract: Despite all the progress made in recent years, it is a fact that Romania still has an economy based on intensive consumption of resources, a society and an administration that are still looking for a unitary development strategy and a natural capital affected by the risk of damage that can become irreversible. The concept of coordinated and coherent development of cities has the premise that human civilization is a subsystem dependent on these fluxes of matter and energy, as well as its self-regulation capacity. This concept aims to maintain a rational, long-term balance between economic development and the integrity of the natural environment in forms understood and accepted by society. As far as our country is concerned, the defining element of the concept of "smart cities" is the full connection to a new philosophy of development, unique to the European Union and widely shared on a global level - that of sustainable development. The sustainable development of a smart city from this point of view is not one of the possible options, but is the only rational perspective of development through the confluence of economic, social and environmental factors.
