The CITyFiED cluster of cities represents a community of cities closely connected to the CITyFiED consortium. The purpose of this cluster is to assure, from the very beginning of the project, the replication potential of the CITyFiED results based on proven technologies and measures to achieve near zero energy districts, on cities having either similar or alternative typologies than the represented by the project demo sites, Laguna-Valladolid, Soma and Lund.
In view of this, each City Cluster city will select a district belonging to their city and will provide both quantitative (such as, estimated energy consumption in kWh/m2) and qualitative data (such as, type of ownership of the buildings of the district): a virtual study tailored on the district selected will be carried out by the CITyFiED consortium. This will help each city belonging to the City Cluster to acknowledge the benefits that the CITyFiED methodology can abridge to its district in terms of energy savings and improvement in living quality.
The selection process of the 11 cities has ended and the City Cluster, representing the group of European cities with the highest replication potential of the CITyFiED technical retrofitting model, has been finalised.
