Peter is an expert on smart cities and data exchanges, and in how to make them a reality. He played a central role in helping to create Hitachi's City Data Exchange in Copenhagen, and was an outspoken advocate for developing other data exchanges globally. He worked with a range of cities, businesses, and organizations to help them understand their data strategy and how to monetize it or create value from it.
