MAtchUP is a demonstration project whose main objective is the implementation of innovative technologies in the energy, mobility and ICT sectors in three lighthouse cities: Valencia in Spain, Dresden in Germany and Antalya in Turkey.
In addition, the project aims to strengthen urban planning processes through models that facilitate the replicability and upscale of interventions. CARTIF is responsible for this Work Package where lighthouse and follower cities (Ostend in Belgium, Kerava in Finland, Skopje in North Macedonia and Herzliya in Israel) will work on developing replicability and upscaling plans that will be the basis for their Plans of Action for Climate and Sustainable Energy.
- Address the challenge of urban transformation through advanced planning.
- Deployment of more than 150 innovative actions in three lighthouse cities.
- Validate the environmental, social and economic impacts generated from the implementation of the previous solutions.
- Ensure the profitability of the actions through innovative business models.
- Promote the emergence of new small businesses through open data platforms.
- Development of a city evaluation framework based on the concept of sustainability.
- Definition of a methodology for the quantification of impacts.
- Implementation of an extensive system for monitoring actions.
- Identify, deploy and validate innovative business models.
- Provide lessons learned in the project to the Covenant of Mayors office.
- Increase in energy efficiency in residential and public buildings (186,000 m2).
- Implementation of 200 electric vehicles (including buses, public and private fleet vehicles and bikes) and 122 charging points.
- Reduction of CO2 emissions: 3.6 kt in buildings and 0.4 kt in transport.
- Contribution of 39% of the energy demand of the project interventions with renewable energies.

Smart cities projects:
NetZeroCities recognisses the need for cities to develop specific strategies that are tailores to suit local and regional contexts, and will support them by aggregated and co-desgined services and thematic expertise through a one-stop-shop platform accessible to all cities through an online portal (Mission Platform)
ATELIER is a demonstration project whose main objective is the design, implementation and validation of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) in Amsterdam and Bilbao
MAKING-CITY’s main objective is to achieve low-carbon cities thanks to the development of strategies aimed at transforming the urban energy system.
The mySMARTLife project seeks to create sustainable and ecological cities, increasing energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy and reducing CO2 emissions.
Nature4Cities’ objective is to improve decision-making in cities with collaborative nature-based models that can be integrated into urban planning in cities.
SmartEnCity aims at a comprehensive sustainable urban regeneration model based on innovative technological solutions for energy, transport and ICTs
REMOURBAN’s objective is to develop and validate in three lighthouse cities (Valladolid-Spain, Nottingham-UK and Tepebaşı-Turkey) an urban, holistic and replicable regeneration model that facilitates the process of transforming urban environments into more sustainable and intelligent areas.
The CITyFiED European project, co-financed by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Program, aims to develop an integrated strategy to adapt existing cities to more sustainable and smart cities.
