The Sharing Cities project demonstrates the effectiveness of new technologies in improving urban mobility, increasing the energy efficiency of buildings and reducing carbon emissions at three strategic locations – London, Lisbon and Milan.
You can reach us:
Shared e-mobility system in Milan
Milan’s shared e-mobility system includes: e-cars, e-bikes, e-logistics vehicles, smart parking, e-vehicle charging, and condominium e-car sharing.
Smart lamp posts
Milan is exploring how a range of sensors and services can be added to lamp posts to transform them into a smart infrastructure for the city, demonstrating how smart technology can add value to people’s lives. The goal was to improve the efficiency of energy use in public lighting.
Sustainable Energy Management Service (SEMS)
This measure involves the development of an advanced, data-rich, management system which gains maximum benefits from the retrofitted buildings, sharing energy data through the open platform enabling energy services to be provided that reduce energy use and bills.
Sharing Cities Urban Sharing Platform (USP)
The Sharing Cities Urban Sharing Platform is a logical collection of technical components, capabilities and processes which provide functions and services that enable a Smart City.
Milan aims to address deep energy retrofit of the residential building stock, both public and private to save until 60-70% energy consumption and improve comfort inside dwelling.
Greenwich Energy Hero DSM
In London, households in the Royal Borough of Greenwich were incentivised through points-based rewards to change their energy consumption patterns and behaviour, with the goal of reducing pressure on the grid during peak times.
Smart Lamppost Electric Charging
The Royal borough of Greenwich has upgraded its lampposts with LED lighting, electric vehicle (EV) charging points and smart parking sensors.
An e-bike loan scheme supporting low-carbon shared mobility
In an effort to encourage a modal shift away from cars, the Royal Borough of Greenwich implemented a business model and service for e-cargo bikes, and introduced an e-bike sharing scheme.
Sharing Cities offers products and services for these Smart City Solutions
Smart streetlights enable the reduction of running expenses associated with public lighting by delivering several value-added services to cities and citizens.
Building Energy Management System
According to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in the EU.
Public Charging System for Electric Vehicles
The current EU regulation on emissions for cars is the strictest worldwide. Along with further restrictions the thresholds cannot be meet with conventional cars only anymore. One alternative technology, reducing the local emissions, are electric vehicles.
Vehicle Sharing System
Vehicle sharing systems allow customers to use various vehicles without the need to own each vehicle. There are different types of vehicle sharing systems on the market. Differences can include the type of vehicle shared, like car sharing, bike sharing, scooter sharing or electric vehicle sharing.
Urban Data Platform
Urban data platforms build the basis for a multitude of applications in a Smart City. An urban data platform intends to map, store and integrate data from different stakeholders of the Smart City ecosystem.
Virtual Power Plant
VPPs are a response to the growing number of distributed energy resources (DER) making their way onto the grid, as VPPs allow their production to be pooled to achieve the flexibility and scale needed to trade in the electricity market; unleashing gains for prosumers, aggregators, and grid operators.
