The REMOURBAN project - the third Smart Cities and Communities project funded by Horizon 2020 to finish - is drawing to a close and now sharing the key lessons learnt throughout the project.
REMOURBAN has developed a holistic model leveraging the convergence of energy, mobility and ICTs to improve energy efficiency, increase the use of renewables, reduce energy consumption and drastically reduce CO2 emissions in urban areas while transforming citizens into active actors of their cities’ renovation.
The model was implemented and validated between 2015 and 2019 in three Lighthouse cities, Valladolid (Spain), Nottingham (UK) and Tepebaşi/Eskişehir (Turkey), while replicability actions have been tested in the follower cities of Seraing (Belgium) and Miskolc (Hungary).
"We are really proud of the achievements we have had in REMOURBAN. The people living in the buildings we have retrofitted now are paying less for the energy they consume and they have better living conditions,“ Miguel Ángel García, Remourban’s coordinator, said in the final interview shared by the project.
