More than two thirds of the European population lives in urban areas. Cities are places where both problems emerge and solutions are found. They are fertile ground for science and technology, for culture and innovation, for individual and collective creativity. Cities consume most of the energy today and their energy demand will continue to increase in the future.

Four European cities and six academic and technical partners have collaborated on this project to develop a methodology for integrative smart city planning. The INSMART project has developed the tools to better forecast energy consumption and carbon emissions when looking at options for city development. Using the INSMART methodology alternative scenarios are analysed and ranked for new and existing developments, taking into account housing stock, transport, public buildings and spaces and options for renewables.

At our final conference we will be describing the INSMART methodology and explaining how it will be beneficial to other cities. We will be examining the results for each of our four cities and sharing what we have learnt about how this methodology can be applied and integrated TO the planning process at city level.
