Virtual energy advisor by Barcelona municipality
Providing information on real-time energy usage and waste levels to tenants is a key tool to help them see and reduce their own environmental footprint. The Virtual Energy Advisor is being developed within the Barcelona Municipality project ‘Take charge of your energy’ with the aim to reduce household electricity consumption by minimum 10% by encouraging behavioural changes amongst tenants.

Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH) and Smart Controllers
• NCC created an efficient citywide heat network.
• The project enabled Nottingham to cope with climate change and build resilience to external energy prices
• The heat source is Energy from Waste (EfW), which is recovered by the incineration of waste; offsetting approx. 27K tonnes of CO2 emissions per year
• Customers received a far more efficient energy supply than those with gas boiler
Active House smart home solution
Real-time information on resource consumption helps tenants see and reduce their environmental footprint. Using this in pricing provides further incentives for residents to cut waste and energy usage.
Switching from steam based to water based heating systems powered by...
Standard & Technical Details: 2.5km of piping, 8.2 MW heat and 1.6 MW of electricity biomass plant.
The solution is changing steam pipes to district heating based on water as energy transmitter. The power is supplied via a biomass power plant owned by the municipality. Pipes can be used with any other water based heat production system. The biomass power plant is fueled by the waste of public green spaces.
Smart Street Lighting in Tartu
The smart street light solution that will be implemented in Tartu is simple and can be deployed quickly even on a large scale. The solution enables municipalities to start saving right from the moment of introducing the solution without having to worry about the payback period. Furthermore, as savings are instant, it will also reduce the payback period of the LED luminaire. The successful installment of the solution will also enable other smart city innovations based on the same technology and principles, such as smart parking, smart traffic management and smart waste management.
Energy efficient refurbishment of tertiary buildings by the City of...
The City of Stockholm has implemented energy retrofitting actions in 2 tertiary buildings. One of the buildings is a cultural centre named Tarmrenseriet, and the second, Kylhuset includes 2 offices complex buildings. Installation of adaptive control system for heating & ventilation, heat recovery in the ventilation system, excess heat from the kitchen to heat hot water, integrated PV in the glass of the skylight with battery storage and smart energy management system, insulation of the roof and a waste heat recovery system from nearby building.
Renewable refuelling stations for heavy duty vehicles
[...] The City of Stockholm is trying to find suitable locations for renewable feulling stations. Some of the stations will be completely new stations and some will be adding alternative fuels to existing diesel stations. The land is leased to filling station operators at a standard price, on the condition that at least two of the following alternative fuels are supplied at each station.
Biogas: Methane gas from waste water treatment plants and food wastes in Stockholm. Cleaned and compressed biogas can be used in CNG vehicles.
Within the EU, there are many brownfields with polluted soil, water or air. A significant number of these brownfields have a central location and are connected to the transport system. Green Remediation is a solution which remediates these brownfields and enables the use of these areas. The main benefits of applying this model are: 1) Prevention of new developments on greenfields 2) Improvement of human health and environmental conditions. The idea behind this green remediation is that not only pollution is minimised or eliminated, but also the efficient use of resources and impacts of restoration techniques are reduced. The essential point is that the polluted soil or groundwater is decontaminated on-site, eliminating the need for removal and transport off-site. Additionally, energy can be generated locally, allowing savings in power consumption. Also, old infrastructure can be reused or recycled.
Smart local thermal districts
Ca l’Alier demonstrated the feasibility of a Nearly Zero Site Energy Use through a combination of photovoltaic power (85kWp), a connection to the district heating and cooling (DHC) network that recovers heat from urban solid waste treatment plant, and the installation of an energy management system that is capable of optimising consumption as well as forecasting the building load.

Reusing EV Batteries for Energy Storage
As the EV market continues to grow and manufacturers are announcing more and more models that are affordable to the end users, the market for second-use EV batteries can be expected to increase remarkably as well. Besides offering a solid business opportunity as replaced batteries are expensive to discard and recycle while still having most of their capacity, reusing batteries reduces waste and adds another 5-10 years of effective lifetime. Several automakers are already experimenting with alternative uses for these second-life batteries in stationary energy storage, so the solution that will
