EU CONCERTO initiative paves the way for Smart Cities: Presentation of 22 energy efficiency projects at the EUSEW

A workshop was held by CONCERTO Premium which presented the initial findings of the detailed analysis of individual projects. Examples of the redesign of entire urban districts were displayed from which other European towns, cities and communities can learn.

European cities and communities benefit from CONCERTO on their path towards becoming a Smart City. This is due to the fact that the experience, as well as the technical, commercial and political knowledge that was generated in the 58 pilot cities and communities, is processed in numerous different ways before being made public.  One important channel in this is the CONCERTO initiative`s website: Amongst other things, this also includes the CONCERTO database which holds detailed information and data about the buildings and energy supply facilities that are components of the projects.



Since 2005, the European Union has co-financed 22 projects in 58 cities in the scope of the EU CONCERTO initiative. The objective of these projects is to build and renovate buildings in an energy efficient manner and to utilise renewable energy sources in an intelligent mix. This is a commitment that pays off, as was demonstrated in Brussels at the EU Sustainable Energy Week during a CONCERTO session.
