Cities are major contributors to climate change (generating 70 % of the global energy-related greenhouse gas emissions). The EU-funded ATELIER project will demonstrate positive energy districts (PEDs) in eight European cities that will strive for sustainability and carbon neutrality. Amsterdam and Bilbao are two lighthouse cities that have committed to generate an energy surplus of 1340 MWh of primary energy, prevent 1.7 kt of CO2- and 23 t of NOx-emissions, and invest EUR 156 million to realise their PED goals. Bratislava, Budapest, Copenhagen, Krakow, Matosinhos, and Riga are the fellow cities that will replicate and adapt successful solutions. ATELIER’s ultimate aim is for more PEDs to spring up around Europe.
Only dataset contemplated in the data management plant will be accepted in this community.
