R2CITIES project: The “washing machines” district smartens up to halve energy consumption

A peripheral district in Genoa, Italy, has become a smart city lab. The R2CITIES European project has improved apartment conditions, reduced waste and lowered the energy bill, all with the help of citizens.

The bulk of the work has now been done and, according to the first data, recorded between 1 and 10 November 2017 and presented during the last edition of the Genoa Smart Week, the target has been met: energy savings are 53%, with bills down by an average of around 30 euros per day.
