Sustainable and ecological cities
Coordinated by CARTIF, mySMARTLife aims to create sustainable cities, more environmentally friendly, by reducing CO2 emissions and increasing the use of RES. 150 smart actions will take place in the lighthouse cities Nantes, Hamburg and Helsinki while follower Cities Bydgoszcz, Rijeka and Palencia will learn from these experiences. “Smart Citizens“, playing a vital role in their city’s development and “Smart Economy” as an innovative and dynamic economic concept, will be the basis of this urban transformation.
The interventions planned and carried out in the lighthouse cities include innovative technological solutions connected to high-performance buildings, usage of RES, clean transport and supported by ICT solutions.
- Transforming cities into more sustainable and environmentally friendly places.
- Reducing CO2 emissions, increasing the use of RES.
- Involving citizens in planning the urban transformation.
- Increasing the digitalization of cities by Urban Platforms.
- Implement 150+ smart actions in Nantes, Hamburg and Helsinki.
- Passing on experiences to Bydgoszcz, Rijeka and Palencia and to mySMARTLife Cities Network.
- Advanced urban planning through Smart People and Smart Economy.
- Development of Replication plans of smart actions in follower cities.
- Smart people: engaging citizens in the urban planning ecosystem, to create an attractive environment for human activities.
- Smart economy: A solid economic framework to fix talent and companies (SMEs, start-ups).
- Developing a evaluation framework by a set of KPIs.
- 6 Urban transformation strategies in Nantes, Hamburg, Helsinki, Palencia, Rijeka and Bydgoszcz.
- 369,509 m2 retrofitted, 66,441 m2 of new construction in Nantes, Hamburg and Helsinki.
- 55% of energy efficiency improvement and 54% of RES energy.
- 2,095 kWh of electricity storage.
- 49 ktons of CO2 emission savings.
- 30 EV, 84 charging stations, approx. 300 e-Buses and two autonomous e-buses.

Smart cities projects:
The project has as main objective to quantify the impact of the massive deployment of autonomous and connected mobility solutions in Europe through the development of a tool based in systems dynamic that will be build as of citizens and organizations perceptions collected in co-creation activities.
NEUTRALPATH has an objective to demonstrate the deployment of clean and positive energy districts (PCED) designed through participative processes focused on the citizen and that contributes significantly to the transformation of cities towards climate-neutrality at the time horizon 2030.
REHOUSE project has as main objective the development and demonstration, up to TRL7, of 8 renovation innovative technologies packages, designed for covering a wide range of building renovation actions, allowing overcome the actual barriers that makes the renovation rates in Europe being low.
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.
MAtchUP is a demonstration project whose main objective is the implementation of innovative technologies in the energy, mobility and ICT sectors
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.
