On 13 September the REMOURBAN coordinator Miguel García-Fuentes (CARTIF) participated to the 8th International Conference on Sustainability in Energy and Buildings held in Turin (Italy).
This year’s edition was about building sustainability in the smart city context, which is at the core of REMOURBAN. In particular, our project participated at Session 3 “Energy Smart Cities and Communities: from performance indicators to real district-scale examples”, chaired by Professor Francesco Causone at the Department of Energy at the Politecnico di Milano.
For Miguel Garcia “The workshop has been a valuable opportunity of knowledge exchange between REMOURBAN and Sharing Cities” a sister H2020 Lighthouse project represented in Turin by the Politecnico di Milano and the City of Lisbon. The intervention from the municipality of Lisbon on their approach to building characterisation and evaluation has been particularly well received. Such approach is based on a multi-level energy performance simulation of existing archetypes. Still from Sharing Cities, Professor Causone presented the approach followed by the aggregation of indicators at city level.
From his side, Miguel Garcia presented the REMOURBAN regeneration model and approach to replication in the light of the analysis of clustering run by the project. Such analysis has identified
5 geographic areas in Europe corresponding with cities located in the North, Centre, South, East and Scandinavian countries. Its scope is to comprehend the possibility of replicating the REMOURBAN regeneration model based on each cluster’s performance on key domain (energy, mobility, ICT) and enablers (people, governance and finance) indicators.
