Energy and Climate Policy
We support public authorities when implementing energy and climate policies, defining and/or evaluating urban and territorial planning strategies as well as developing tools that guide them during the decision-making process.
How? We use and exploit geo-referenced information in public bases, in order to develop GIS maps to carry out geolocated studies with various levels of detail, for the evaluation of climatic and energy parameters, as well as the potential use of the territory.
The development of integrated evaluation models (AMI) allows us to advance in the definition and evaluation of climate and energy policies for a better territorial planning at national and European level.

LOCOMOTION will design a set of IAMs that will provide politicians and other stakeholders with assessment tools to analyze the feasibility, effectiveness and costs of the different sustainability policies and strategies.
The CCliMAP project has the general objective of providing resources and instruments to aid decision-making for the reduction of greenhouse gases
The main objective is the development of advanced methods for energy planning at different scales (building to region), that support the development of tools. It will offer a working basis to those entities responsible of the generation, deployment and evaluation of energy actions aimed at the compliance with the energy efficiency objectives 2020–2050
