Project details



Towards smart zero CO2 cities across Europe

Start date: 01.02.2016

Duration: 66 months

Coordinator: TECNALIA Research & Innovation

Budget: 31.87 M€


Cities play a key role in fighting climate change. Energy demand and CO2 emissions are particularly high in urban areas. At the same time, urban density allows more alternatives for energy-efficient housing, eco-friendly transport and service provision.

SmartEnCity’s vision is to create Smart Zero Carbon Cities that are more sustainable and inclusive, improve citizens’ quality of life, create jobs and wealth, and offer equal growth opportunities.

It aims to develop a systemic approach for transforming European cities into sustainable, smart and resource-efficient urban environments in Europe. We aim to develop strategies that can be replicated throughout Europe in order to:

  • Reduce energy demand and
  • Maximise renewable energy supply.
