A wide and high level community of over 40 cities, which will benefit from networking activities with other municipalities and communities and information sharing of the retrofitting methodology implemented in the CITyFiED Demo Sites.
The Community of Interest represent a second layer of cities acting as potential replication targets for the project results: the purpose is to create a wide and high level community of over 40 cities which will benefit from networking activities with other municipalities and communities and they will acknowledge the retrofitting methodology implemented in the Demo Sites.
The CITyFiED project welcomes applications of Cities willing to become part of the CITyFiED Community of Interest.
|A smarter, faster route to the future: the CITyFiED Community of Interest|
For those towns, cities and municipalities looking to navigate the complex systems of Smart Cities and find the most efficient route to achieving near zero energy districts, CITyFiED has the answer.
A select group of 40 cities and leading associations will be invited to have direct access to innovative, tested and cost effective methodologies and procedures for planning, deploying and replicating energy efficient district retrofitting actions, heating solutions and integrated electricity generation.
This high-level group will also be exposed to a vast array of soft skills – exchanges of experience on partnerships, finance and legal frameworks to enable more confident, cost effective and time sensitive decision-making. Either through peer-2-peer exchange with the three demonstration sites and 11 replication cities; a multitude of online learning opportunities; webinars and study tours. It is a low-investment, high-impact formula designed to facilitate your energy goals.
Finally, members of the Community of Interest will become recognised actors leading European drive for smart cities and energy transition. Considerable opportunities for partnership building, media visibility and promotion to local, national and European stakeholder groups are assured.
