The IDEAS project ("Intelligent NeighbourhooD Energy Allocation & Supervision") has developed a complete Energy Management System enabling energy tradings and optimisation that supports the development and conception of Energy Positive Neighbourhoods (EPNs).


Discover how communities, public authorities & utility companies can be engaged in the development of energy positive neighbourhoods through:

  • A neighbourhood energy management tool to optimise energy production and consumption.
  • User interfaces that engage communities and individuals in the operation of energy positive neighbourhoods.
  • A decision support urban planning tool to optimise the planning of neighbourhood energy infrastructures.
