CARTIF PROJECTS

MAKING-CITY

Low carbon cities

Description

MAKING-CITY is a large-scale demonstration project, coordinated by CARTIF whose main objective is to achieve low-carbon cities thanks to the development of strategies aimed at transforming the urban energy system, taking the Positive Energy Districts (PED) concept as a reference. 

Groningen (Netherlands) and Oulu (Finland) are the two lighthouse cities responsible for demonstrating the objectives of the project. In addition, 6 other cities – Leon (Spain), Bassano del Grappa (Italy), Kadiköy (Turkey), Trencin (Slovakia), Vidin (Bulgaria) and Lublin (Poland) – will work on the replicability of the demonstrated solutions and the 8 cities of the project will develop their long-term city plans (city vision 2050).

 

Objectives

  • Demonstration of the PED concept in Groningen and Oulu
  • Procedure for the definition of PED concept
  • Replicate the PED concept developed in MAKING-CITY in the 6 Follower cities
  • Methodologies for long term urban planning and definition of City Vision 2050 for all the cities of the project
  • Monitoring and evaluation programme for the implemented actions
  • Innovative business models for the development of PED

Actions

  • Energy efficient building retrofitting
  • Integration of renewable energy sources (PV, solar thermal, geothermal, heat pumps)
  • Energy storage and heat recovery
  • Integration of electric vehicle charging points
  • ICT urban platform
  • Social acceptance and citizen participation

Expected results

  • Energy surplus of 350MWh/year in the 60,200m2 of retrofitted district
  • Reduction of more than 1,400t of CO2 during the project and improvement of air quality
  • Increase of renewables contribution (80%), heat recovery and integration of energy storage technologies
  • Increase self-consumption and energy efficiency at district level
  • Installation of electric mobility solutions
  • More than 4,000 new jobs
