Smarter Together is a pilot project that aims at developing ICT solutions for the energy transition in urban areas. A special focus will be on residential housing renovation, production and consumption of renewable energy and mobility. Lyon, Munich and Vienna are the three leading cities in the Smarter Together project. Smarter Together is a Smart Cities project supported by the European Union in the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme.
The overall aim of PROSPECT is to enable peer-to-peer learning in regional and local authorities in order to finance and implement their sustainable energy plans.
HotMaps aims at designing a toolbox to support public authorities, energy agencies and urban planners in strategic heating and cooling planning on local, regional and national levels, and in line with EU policies.
How can we better connect urban planning with energy and climate policies? As an INTERREG Europe project, MOLOC facilitates transnational exchanges around best local policy […]
Welcome to the largest meeting of French local authorities in the energy field. Organised by the Urban Community of Dunkirk, Bordeaux Métropole and ADEME in 2016, this annual event gathers more than 2,000 people during 3 days.
The Display Campaign is the first and most widespread European Campaign to encourage municipalities to publicly display environmental performances of their municipal buildings. More than 13,000 buildings are labelled with the Display poster showing their energy and water performances as well as green house gas emissions.
This project aims to develop Europe’s expertise in using and applying energy-SSH through an innovative Platform that will unite those who “demand” energy research, because […]
Through projects Energy Cities challenge the way we deal with energy in all spheres of a city. They are a great opportunity to fund unheard-of urban practices and to experiment with other cities. The successful solutions that our projects produce are blueprints for peers facing similar challenges. Participation of cities in EU-funded projects is also essential to demonstrate policy-makers how the locally-based energy transition can be a reality.
