[...] better energy usage regulation. Furthermore, the system can be connected to the smart grid as well as electric charging infrastructure to enable better energy efficiency and billing plans, for example, according
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
Flow Sign in the Archaeological Museum Hamburg
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.

E-Charging Station with remote control in Mülheim
In the district of Mülheim, new charging infrastructure was setup, which enables the tenants to charge their electric vehicles.
Customers are required to register at tankE [...] on users’ choice of
mobile phone contract.
As a registered driver, you are able to fill your vehicle at “Tanke” branded charging stations with green electricity from renewable sources [...] of charge
Additionally to encourage use of Electric vehicles, in cooperation with KVB, the car-sharing company Cambio and the carpark-sharing company Ampido, tenants are offered various forms of shared
Sustainable Energy Supply by Soil Sanitation
Regulations of the electricity market (generation and sale) play a key role in success: as pricing is monitored, difficult to develop a business case around it.
Owing to strict regulations in the handling of groundwater wells with regards to the built environment above, a lot of planning is needed.
External factors could influence underground water flows.
An e-bike loan scheme supporting low-carbon shared mobility
[...] The Royal Borough of Greenwich is located approximately 10km to the east from the city centre. It is less well served by the cycling network and infrastructure. Due to this, private companies recently started to introduce regular and electric dockless bike sharing schemes to the area. However, there is not at present an integrated, city-wide e-bike sharing scheme in London. Electric bikes (including e-Cargo bikes) have been part of a wide range of low carbon mobility measures supporting the borough's Low Emission Neighbourhood programme.

Nottingham ready to beat...
[...] be net zero by 2028 . To meet such lofty goals the city has invested in one of the UK’s largest electric bus fleets , expanded their tram network, runs many services on renewable sources, improved cycling [...] council and aims to distribute low cost energy and address fuel poverty . As of 2018, 100% of the electricity they provide is renewable. The council also owns a heat network that supplies heat to business
100% supply from locally generated renewable energy sources (including photovoltaic);
Innovative energy contracting of the EWZ;
Greencity-Grid: highly efficient linkage of power generation and consumption;
Environmentally friendly mobility concept (own S-Bahn and bus stops, two car-sharing locations and approx. 10% of parking spaces reserved for electric vehicles).
Sustainable Energy Management Service (SEMS)
SEMS is implemented using the MONET, an innovative integrated platform for the energy monitoring of different systems serving Smart Cities.
The retrofitting interventions are monitored through the Sustainable Energy Management System, able to maximize building-level utilization of renewable self-generation, minimize building electricity costs by load management, promote behavior change, create a consumption and production map through the acquisition of data from multiple sources and visualize estimated production and consumption balances for each building.
The Parker Project- V2G Services
The aim of the Parker project was to validate that series-produced electric vehicles as part of a company fleet can support the power grid with V2G services. Ultimately supporting the use of renewable energy while earning money through grid services.
Optical sorting system for smart waste collection
[...] not involved in GrowSmarter to re-route electricity. This was not easily done, because the team could not pressure the grid-operator, but succeeded eventually.
Single base bike sharing
Different types of bikes are available (e.g. electric) at Strijp-S with the aim to improve the sharing of green mobility solutions in this district.
District Retrofitting in Eskişehir
[...] To reach the sustainable objectives in 17 buildings of Yasam Koyu district, a series of interventions were designed such as façade and roof insulation, windows replacement with low-E glazing, lighting replacement with efficient LED system, installation of mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, installation of fan-coil heating/cooling system, room thermostats, windows and door magnetic sensors for smart decisions to optimize the control of heating and cooling and building integrated photovoltaic panels for renewable electricity generation. In complement with building
Development of an integrated e-bike sharing scheme
[...] and implement electric mobility solutions, as this may reduce local emissions and at the same time foster the use of alternative fuels (renewable energy).
In Munich, the MVG’s (Munich’s public transport provider) current bike-sharing system is not well-suited for senior citizens (60+) or physically impaired people, because these groups often prefer electric bicycles or tricycles (or trikes) or the sense [...] cannot use the normal bicycle sharing in Munich. No electric support, no possibilities to carry charges and you need a smartphone to rent it. The E-Trike prototype shows solutions for those problems.
Reusing EV Batteries for Energy Storage
As EVs are gaining popularity virtually everywhere, solutions for repurposing their rather quickly deteriorating, but still valuable batteries (delivering 70-80% of their original output at end of life) have significant market potential and could yield many environmental benefits. Tartu – having built up a considerable electric taxi fleet (ca. 60 vehicles in the taxi fleet of OU Takso) – is a suitable test site for piloting solutions to reuse electric vehicle (EV) batteries for storing energy.
The objective of this activity is to use EV batteries in a sustainable way by giving them a second
Intelligent Street Lighting in Ludwigsburg
As part of the "Living LaB" innovation network in Ludwigsburg, this use case is an example of how cities can become "smarter" in the future. Smart lanterns do not only save electricity but also protect the envrionment and animals.
Construction Consolidation Centre in Stockholm
[...] Construction materials make up 30-40 % of goods moved around modern cities. A centralised logistics depot in Stockholm will help cut emissions associated with these journeys drastically, allowing materials to be moved in the most efficient way possible. Using hybrid-electric and ethanol fuelled vehicles will also help reduce emissions.
