Bridging European and Local Climate Action

BEACON

The project Bridging European and Local Climate Action (BEACON) is a multi-level governance project promoting climate action and facilitating an exchange between national networks and governments as well as municipalities and schools in Europe. It is financed via the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) a support programme of the German Ministry for the Environment (BMU).

Make the city of tomorrow visible today!

Living Streets

Living Streets is a real-life experiment whereby each year, for two months, residents can temporarily transform their street into the sustainable place they have always dreamed of. Each of these living labs explores a new urbanism with fewer cars and more social interaction. Living Streets is (…)

Accelerating Condominium Energy Retrofitting

ACE-Retrofitting

43% of the European population lives in condominiums/multi-occupancy apartment blocks, which are primarily of low energy performance. How can cities accelerate the energy retrofitting of these buildings?

Sustainable Mobility for Citizens in Europe

CitiZEN

Efficient and effective urban mobility can significantly contribute to achieving sustainable economic growth and employment opportunities in our cities. It is of huge importance to achieving the EU 2020 objectives as 70% of the EU population live in cities and account for over 80% of the EU’s GDP. Moreover, in many urban areas, the increasing demand for urban mobility has created a non-sustainable environment with severe congestion, poor air quality and high levels of CO2 emissions.

PROSPECT

PROSPECT

Peer-powered cities and regions

PROSPECT

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. The learning will empower them to make use of best practices in developing financing for these plans, which have been implemented successfully in other cities and regions in the EU. The specific objectives of PROSPECT are:

progRESsHEAT

progRESsHEAT

Fostering the market uptake of renewable electricity, heating and cooling technologies

progRESsHEAT

The progRESsHEAT project aims at assisting local, regional, national and EU political leaders in developing policy and strategies to ensure a quick and efficient deployment of renewables in the heating and cooling networks.

MEDNICE

MEDNICE

Bundling energy efficiency tools for the Mediterranean

MEDNICE

As a so-called “horizontal project”, MEDNICE will be the overarching intiative that bundles 10 (modular) projects funded in the framework of the same Interreg Mediterranean programme.
In the Mediterranean area cooling (and heating) as well as low building standards induce high consumption and expenses. And this, even though a wealth of natural resources and a conducive climate do provide excellent conditions for greening residential and public buildings.

Smarter Together

Smarter Together

Smart and Inclusive Solutions for a Better Life in Urban Districts

Smarter Together

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.

Cities as testbeds for the energy transition

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.
