syn.ikia: Sustainable Plus Energy Neighbourhoods

:: Previous Initiative

General Description

Households currently cause a fifth of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. The transition to net-zero energy districts is underway. Future cities and communications can feature sustainable neighbourhoods with zero greenhouse gas emissions. The EU-funded syn.ikia project will design a blueprint for sustainable plus energy buildings and neighbourhoods. This will include a balanced application of integrated energy design, energy- and cost-efficiency measures, local renewables, local storage, energy flexibility, and energy sharing and trading. The project will encourage community engagement and allow for flexible management of energy demand. It will also provide big data-based infrastructure management and smart networks.
