Celsius Smart Cities Workshop- 16th September 2015

This interactive workshop will bring together excellence from several advanced European Smart Cities projects that will put forward their expertise and their project results on integrated planning, energy efficiency and district energy solutions, among others.

MSc Global Sustainable Cities Brochure

The Institute for Future Cities (IFC) has published a new brochure for the MSc Global Sustainable Cities.

 STEP UP cities have conducted an analysis of current and planned energy actions in their cities. The aim of this analysis has been to identify the most viable stand-alone actions and cross-sector opportunities for the cities to include in their enhanced SEAPs.

Cities have undertaken an inventory of actions and assessed these in terms of their feasibility and impact. To achieve this, multiple dimensions of each action have been analysed, including:

  • Technical assessment
  • Contribution to EU2020 climate and energy goals
  • Economics and Finance
  • Stakeholders assessment and willingness for collaboration
  • Risk assessment

To carry out an inventory of actions and assess them by these different dimensions, cities have gathered information and data from across different municipality departments as well as external stakeholders. To find out more about the tools and approaches used by different cities, you can download a summary of the cities’ work at the bottom this this page.

Cross-sector opportunities

Analysing stand-alone actions can allow for cross-sector opportunities to be identified, which bring together individual, sector-specific actions into an integrated initiative with the potential to deliver greater benefits to the city and its inhabitants.

Cross-sector can be considered in different ways. Some STEP UP cities have focussed on cross-sector opportunities in terms of bringing together actions that cross more than one of the smart cities sectors – transport, energy and ICT – whilst other cities have focussed on those that cross multiple Covenant of Mayors sectors – buildings, transport, public lighting, industry, local electricity production and local heat/cold production.

To read more about the cross-sector opportunities identified in each city, or to find more about the approaches taken by STEP UP cities, you can download a report summary here.
