Sustainable and Resource Efficient Cities - Holistic simulation and optimization for smart cities
The planning platform for resource efficient cities
SURECITY´s mission is to support the integration of policies and measures towards resource efficient and low carbon energy systems in cities. We want to help local authorities, companies and citizens to analyse and develop sustainable environmental and energy strategies and to foster the creation of new business models in the transition to the circular economy.
Planning for Resource Efficient and Low Carbon Cities
The platform will alows users to test and assess mid- and long-term cost-efficient pathways to reach environmental and energy performance targets
Integrated Environmental and Energy Policy Modelling
The platform will integrate results from TIMES-MARKAL model and an environmental assessment model for city-level energy and environment policy modelling
Supporting Stakeholder Engagement in Local Policy
The platform will allow different types of users to assess policy implementation with a multi-level approach to modelling, supporting effective stakeholder engagement through participatory modelling
SURECITY is being developed by a consortium with municipalities, research institutes and SME, bringing different perspectives and complementary backgrounds to meet the project goals.
