This week, members from the REMOURBAN consortium, will be in Brussels for a series of EIP Action Cluster workshops culminating in the EIP SCC General Assembly with the central theme “Towards a joint investment programme for Smart Cities”
The Climate Conference in Sønderborg (Denmark) is a biannual appointment for representative from municipalities, industry and academia to enter a dialogue about the best solutions to reach their climate goals at city, regional and national levels.
REMOURBAN Partner Veolia will present the Valladolid case at the 3rd International Conference on Smart Energy Systems and 4th Generation District Heating in Copenhaguen (12-13 September)
Ten homes in Sneinton have been selected as part of a UK first pilot to radically improve older houses using energy saving and energy generation measures. Proposed improvements will make the residents of these homes ultra-low energy consumers, dramatically reducing household energy bills and making homes warmer.
If we are to heed to the message from a WSB2014 report stating “It is impossible to reach desirable climate change scenarios with the current building sector”, then retrofitting must sit squarely on the agenda. But what does it really take to uphold near-zero energy criteria on a district level? This is what our colleagues, Miguel García Fuentes, (CARTIF), Ignacio González (Acciona Construcción), Jane Lumb (Nottingham City Council), and Alfonso Gordaliza (Veolia), tackled at this year’s edition of Sustainable Places hosted by Teesside University in the UK, drawing on their own tangible experience under Remourban.
As part of this year’s EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), REMOURBAN’s Miguel García Fuentes (CARTIF) and Philip James (Nottingham City Homes) joined two discussion events in Brussels about smart cities.
UK Covenant of Mayors signatory Nottingham is taking the lead on e-mobility in Europe through an ambitious electric bus project.
Another great edition of EU Sustainable Week is behind us! The event offered three dynamic days filled with interesting discussions, inspiring speakers and conversations that you wished would never end.
During the EU Sustainable Energy Week, the EIP-SCC held a series of practical Action Cluster Meetings bundled into a one-day event entitled « Building a market for Smart Cities and Communities ».
Cities represent three quarters of energy consumption and 80% of CO2 emissions worldwide, and with urbanisation expected to continue, a growing number of ‘Lighthouse’ cities across Europe have taken up the challenge of testing new ‘smart’ energy-saving solutions in large-scale test-beds under the impulse of European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 646511
