2017 to 2019

Network of Research Institutions for Planning Efficient Energy Systems in Urban Areas

According to EUROPE 2020 Strategy and the EU Action Plan for a circular economy, resource-efficiency is strictly linked to the competitiveness and sustainability of territories. It is assumed that high efficiency rates in future building stock, new technologies like low temperature district heating and heat pumps, recovery of heat and energy waste in industry, full exploitation of the potential of biomass, will make our energy systems more clean and efficient. In this context, IDEE project will capitalize the results of Urban Energy Web project (Interreg IVA Italy-Austria) and go beyond it creating a cross-border research network on “integrative system analysis on urban energy systems”. Such research nucleus will combine the complementary competences of 4 partner research centres and one public authority to develop an integrated bottom-up assessment framework on urban energy systems.

A new integrative model framework will be elaborated, interpreting energy, environmental, building, economic and geographic information data will be jointly elaborated to support local authorities and other key stakeholder to plan energy investments in urban areas, giving strategic inputs on available potentials, the most innovative applicable technological solutions and their environmental impact, costs and return on investment. Such models will be applied in pilot selected areas (Maniago - FVG, Feltre - Veneto and Salzburger Seenland - Austria),
thus being replicable also in other territories.
