EV charging infrastructure in Nottingham
A new charging depot with 12 charges has been implemented at a local Park and Ride site to charge 13 new BYD buses . These buses will be deployed on the Centrelink and Ecolink bus routes and operate along the city's new ULEV (Ultra Low Emssion Vehicles) shared lane which when completed in March 2018 will provide bus priority for both electric and biomethane buses and also allow electric cars to use bus lanes for a trial period.

EV Charging stations in Valladolid
Objectives of the project were:
The Electric Vehicle Office in the city plays a key role to manage and support the deployment of electro-mobility in Valladolid. It acts as a catalyser.
Selecting the location of each charging point requires a deep analysis of variables such as physical barriers, demand in the near area, distance between other points, etc. It is also important to consider other private operators in the area that also cover the demand.
The charging points and the whole mobility infrastructure are monitored to obtain the main variables of the sustainable

Problems to display the content were overcome by making changes in the app. Intensity of the light needed to be changed.
When a Museum is undergoing renovation or modernisation, the earlier you take innovative electricity and wiring into consideration, the better.
Innovative technology is very interesting, especially for the younger generation of visitors. Overall this leads to more visitors.

Other platforms can now „piggyback“ on our solution to get electricity and internet conenction.
Features can be added dynamically in the future without touching the hardware ever again.
The impact of actions to reduce traffic combustion in cities can directly be verified.
Distributed Generation - PV system installation
Building integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) is the integration of photovoltaics (PV) into the building envelope. The PV module serves the dual function of power generator and replacement of conventional building envelope materials. BIPV systems can provide savings in materials and electricity costs, reduce use of fossil fuels and emission of ozone depleting gases, and add architectural interest to the building. It will have a total capacity of 150 kWe, will produce 240 MWh/year electricity which yields 125454 kgCO2e reduction.

Multimodal Mobility Stations
Within the Smarter Together project scope eight multimodal e-mobility stations were built within the project area of Neuaubing-Westkreuz and Freiham. In order to meet different needs the mobility stations connect different offers for individual mobility: rental bikes, e-bikes, e-tricycles (all MVG), e-car sharing (STATTAUTO) as well as charging stations for electric vehicles, supplying 100% green electricity (SWM). A digital information pillar displays all available mobility options in the area – including easy access to information about the offered local services and public transport as well as map

New heating network
As part of the HeatNet North West Europe Interreg project, Aberdeen City Council is completing a pilot project in Torry. An existing district heating network within this area currently serves three multi-storey blocks. The pilot will expand this existing network, linking in three municipal buildings. In 2002 Aberdeen City Council formed a separate not for profit company to provide combined heat and power (CHP) schemes in Aberdeen. Carbon emissions from these buildings have reduced by 45% and typical fuel costs to tenants have been reduced by up to 50% over the previous electric

Real-Time Energy Map, Nottingham
The Real-Time Energy Map solution takes as input the immediate energy consumption in the area based on database data, potentially using the ESRI GIS system. The solution is a mix of data collection, data store and aggregation and data visualisation (interpretation):
Data Collection: data such as temperature, humidity, gas and electricity consumption is collected from a diverse range of installed sensors in the dwellings . The data is collected on regular basis intervals (typically 15 minutes to 1 hour).
Data Store and Aggregation: each site has its own data
