Resource Efficient cities implementing ADvanced smart citY solutions
Based on thorough integrated climate planning the READY project will demonstrate a Whole City Approach including: 1) Demo of a balanced and holistic approach towards affordable retrofitting of residential buildings and offices 2) Development and demo of new solutions for low-temp. district heating, components and management ICT systems 3) Development and demo of flexible combined grid balancing/energy storage solutions for buildings and RES systems including combined heat pumps for heating and cooling, electrical vehicles charging, new PVT systems and 2ndlife reuse of EV batteries in buildings 4) Resource and energy smart solutions for kitchens 5) Solutions for water efficiency and waste water energy recovery 6) Demo of new innovative industrial equipment for use of RES and integration of demand and supply, - based on business plans, and follow-up by promotion and dissemination activities. These measures will demonstrate how the demand of energy and particularly the needs for fossil fuels and release of CO2 can be considerably reduced to nearly zero, and show a sustainable way to go for other European cities.
READY will develop a whole smart city approach, including the development of low temperature district heating network, flexible grid balancing/energy storage solutions for building and RES systems, and other several targets. The demonstration will take place in Denmark and Sweden.
