Smart cities are promising solution for providing efficient services to the citizens with the use of Information and Communication Technologies. City automation has become essential concept for improving the quality of the citizens' lives, which gives rise to smart cities. Fog computing for Internet of Things (IoT) is considered recently an essential paradigm in smart city scenarios. In this work, we propose energy efficient Fog Servers (FSs), which delivers the information data to the mobile users (in the vehicle). We introduced the concept of energy efficiency through the judicious distribution of non-renewable or/and renewable energy to the FS, which improves outage (and dropping probability. As a first step, we optimise the locations of the FSs for IoT Information Piece Delivery (IoTPD) in a smart city vehicular environment with dropping less than 5%. Then, we maximised the energy savings by pushing dropping to a certain level (5%). To improve the dropping, the available renewable (wind) grid energy is optimally allocated to each FS. This, in turn, also reduces carbon footprint.
