How can we secure smart and efficient public - private collaboration in the making of making energy wise cities?
In energy wise cities, the buildings and blocks form an active part of the energy system in producing, storing and consuming energy. Energy-efficient and low-carbon buildings, in turn, enable the use of renewable energy, real-time energy monitoring and regional zero or plus energy systems.
The 6Aika Energy Wise Cities project boosts energy-efficient housing, zero energy construction, diversified energy systems, energy efficiency monitoring and end user guidance in the six largest cities in Finland. The integration of energy systems, together with buildings, enables open regional energy platforms and the development of flexible energy ecosystems. The actions taken in the project will have a significant impact on the achievement of the national climate goals.
The project uses a structured, well-documented procedure for making the most of collaboration between public and private sectors, enhanced with the latest knowledge from the research community. It includes:
All participating cities are committed to offering urban districts and public buildings as real-life test beds for new energy wise solutions. Best practices and learnings will be shared through discussion and presentations.
