The NRGcoin concept is motivated by the following issues in the energy sector:
Inadequate subsidies for renewables. Too little subsidies lead to slower integration of renewables, while too high support causes stress on the grid infrastructure.
Risk for policy change. Retroactive changes in support policy undermine the trust of investors and lead to slower adoption of renewables.
Rising electricity prices. Without proper balance of supply and demand, the grid infrastructure needs to be reinforced to handle peak production and consumption.

The aim of this use case is to create a harmonized public transportation authority (PTA) ticketing system that is also compatible with a bike sharing system (BSS). Moreover, this use case seeks to increase open interfaces available to Mobility as a Service (MaaS) operators and to the mobility service providers that want to link their service with public transportation.
In the long run, the goal is to have a wide variety of services linked to the open public transport platform, such as several different bike types and electric vehicles. What’s more, the objective is to make MaaS

[...] In order to replace fossil fuelled vehicles, both electric and sustainable biofuels are necessary. In Sweden the market for alternative fuelled cars is already developed. However, the market for the heavy vehicles, such as distribution trucks, is moving much more slowly.The City of Stockholm recognises that in order to get more heavy vehicles operating on biofuels, filling stations providing biofuels are needed. To push the market, barriers to the adoption of alternative-fuel heavy duty vehicles need to be removed and incentives introduced. A renewable fuelling

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
Vehicle Sharing Service in Mülheim
A car-sharing service is set up with a range of different vehicles to be able to cater for a variety of transport requirements in different situations. To completely be able not owning your own car it is necessary that car pools offer this choice of vehicle. An electric vehicle might be suitable for shorter trips in the city but when travelling longer distances with a big family an electric vehicle might not fit the needs and it is therefore important to offer alternatives.
This possibility has been put together by Cambio. Integration of various vehicle sharing alternatives
Enabling cycling outside the city...
In 2008, the City of Madrid adopted its Bicycle Master Plan (2008-2016). The plan boosted the development of a cycling infrastructure network, currently over 300 km, and also led to the implementation of BICIMAD - the city’s electric bike-sharing system. Despite this, cycling levels remain at a very low rate (below 1% of all trips). This is particularly the case for trips to and from the peripheries. A higher perceived accident risk when cycling can explain the latter.
This measure will contribute to reducing overall car trips, decarbonising mobility in Madrid and thereby improving

Mobility Station in Mülheim
Mobility hubs will provide commuters and residents with a location, where you can easily find various kinds of transport, such as trams, trains, buses, taxis, (e-)car-sharing, (e-)bike-sharing and parking lots with online management of parking spaces. Additionally, the mobility station can be used for charging electric vehicles.
There will be a possibility for the urban administration to regulate inner-city traffic by adjusting prices according to demand and capacity. Mobility stations provide access to a range of transport options, improving the flexibility of urban mobility and reducing

By installing Omniflow's Smart IoT Lamppole, Biedronka saved an impressive 82 % of electric energy when compared to normal LED lighting systems or 97% compared to old technology lighting.
The lighting units are managed remotely by an Internet of Things software, are powered by wind and solar energy, and have a built-in energy storage battery to further reduce any reliance on the grid. When batteries are depleted, consumption switches to take energy from the grid.

This pilot project aimed to find new and innovative technological solutions to promote the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) and distributed generation (DG) in smart grid systems. In particular, the purpose was to develop, implement and test in field innovative devices to demonstrate the technical feasibility of increasing the monitoring of the distribution grid and the controllability of RES connected at lower voltage levels. DG and RES do not currently participate in real-time management of the grid and so to enable DG to become active players in the electricity system, it is necessary
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
