STEP UP Cities’ Innovative Projects - Ghent
Ghent’s urban development/regeneration project Sint-Amandsberg Dampoort (SAD) aims to transition an existing district with 30,000 inhabitants towards climate neutrality, with a focus on stimulating energy efficient renovations. The project joins together several sectors – mainly energy, ICT and transport – consisting of a number of actions such as developing a district SEAP, linking and improving tools and techniques and setting up stakeholder-driven pilot projects. The majority of actions are already being implemented, and the remainder will be implemented in a step-wise manner. The timeframe for some actions is 2020, while others have a longer scope.
