RepliCable and InnovaTive Future Efficient Districts and cities
The project strategy has four pillars:
• Large scale demonstrations, including three holistic district renovations at Laguna de Duero-Valladolid (Spain), Soma (Turkey) and Lund (Sweden);
• Maximization of the replication potential through the organization of a cluster of cities and building a community of interest among cities;
• Development of innovative and cost effective methodologies and procedures for planning, deploying and replicating energy efficient district retrofitting actions;
• Development of better business models to support the strategy for transforming urban areas into Nearly Zero-Energy Districts (NZED);
One of the main targets and outcomes of the project was the elaboration of a sound and feasible replication plan. 10 representative European cities and a relevant number of stakeholders were involved in the project through the CITyFiED City Cluster. Dissemination, knowledge exchange, benchmarking actions, deployment of project results in other European cities are the main impacts of the CITyFiED project. Moreover, training and information for the participation of the future users of retrofitted demo sites are a core point of the dissemination strategies that will spur the impact of the project.
