On Thursday 5 October our colleague Sarah Bogaert gave a presentation on the City-zen project during European Utility Week. The City-zen presentation was part of the “citizen engagement” session. The key-takeaways of the presentation can be found below.
The objective of the City-zen project is to develop and demonstrate energy efficient cities and to build a methodology and tools for cities, industries and citizens to reach the 20-20-20 targets. In order to make this possible 20 projects were set up in Grenoble and Amsterdam.
Last week EnergyVille was present at the European Utility Week in Amsterdam. The event serves as an annual meeting point for the smart utility community, ranging from utilities, network operators, vendors, consultants, startups and system integrators covering the entire smart energy value chain. It was attended by over 12.000 international visitors, 550 speakers (including 4 from EnergyVille) and almost 600 exhibitors.
