POCITYF is a smart city-oriented project, whose major goal is to deliver a set of Positive Energy Blocks – a limited geographic area whose average local renewable generation is greater than its consumption – in the Lighthouse cities of Evora (PT) and Alkmaar (NL) and their Fellow cities Granada (ES), Bari (ΙΤ), Celje (SI), Ujpest (HU), Ioannina (GR) and Hvidovre (DK).
With the creation of Positive Energy Blocks and Districts, POCITYF aims to transform those cities’ mixed-urban environments, with a strong emphasis on cultural and historical protected areas, into cheaper, healthier, more accessible and reliable spaces for their citizens. In one word, to improve, in a sustainable and citizen-driven manner, the wellbeing in the 7 mentioned cities.
To achieve that, POCITYF will deploy a total of 10 integrated solutions, comprising 73 individual innovative elements (technologies, tools, methods), rooted under existing City Information Platforms. The project will be carried out along 4 Energy Transition Tracks (ETT), namely:
Overall, POCITYF will therefore add layers of smartness in key city infrastructures, technologies and services (i.e. buildings, energy grid, e-mobility), creating new possibilities to make cities safer, greener and more responsive to the needs of their citizens, businesses and other organizations.
In the Lighthouse cities of:
The 10 integrated solutions will be developed, tested and monitored. These cities will act as exemplars by helping fellow cities to plan and initiate the replication of the deployed solutions.
In the Fellow cities of:
Part of the solutions tested in the Lighthouse cities will be replicated, accordingly to their specific contexts. Replication plans will be developed during the course of POCITYF.
NEW R&D/EDP Labelec will be the project coordinator of POCITYF. It will also be:
