Demonstrate agile energy maps capturing direct and indirect production and consumption of energy over sectors
Develop and pilot an EU-wide smart city Indicator framework as a collaborative exercise; adopting/adapting existing measurement assets; and establish a means to achieve wide-scale adoption.
Also some strategies for smart city implementation will be addressed in order to develop new approaches to create incentives for European cities to favor the transition to the smart concept.
In order to enable economic viability of the smart city solutions, REMOURBAN will address an innovation task, focused on creating new integrated business models, which aims at the creation of a European market for innovation that opens up investments.
The main target is offering economies of scale and available technology solutions, generating strategies for a smart combination of funds, in order to stimulate the investors, to reduce real and perceived risks of the investments and to foster the replicability.
The urban regeneration model is the major project target. The consortium aims at developing solutions that will be very close to the citizens. For achieving it, an extensive strategy for citizen engagement, from the very beginning, will be deployed. However, it has been detected that there is a chance to innovate in the way to engage the citizens, and a specific task will be focused on defining new methodologies and procedures for improving the citizen engagement in the project development.
