Project goals and fields of work

The measures on the agenda of the international consortium for the next five years are based on a sharing economy, the joint use of goods and services, the recycling of resources, innovative business models, user-friendly services and target-orientated and socially responsible use of modern technology. The active participation of citizens is a further central aspect of the project.

The planned measures can be divided into five main categories:

  • The "Stadtteillabor" (Living Lab) set up to encourage the participation of citizens and user groups. The concept goes far beyond previous forms of citizen participation; users work with companies and local providers to develop solutions for urban mobility and energy-saving.
  • The development of low-energy districts, based on renewable district heating (geothermal and low-temperature district heating) and renewable energy supplies
  • Holistic refurbishment of existing housing (energy-related high-standard refurbishment of 42,000 square metres of living space, on-site consultation) and safeguarding of current rent levels
  • The expansion of integrated infrastructures in the form of smart data management platforms and services (e.g. intelligent lamp posts, distribution points for goods, services and district-specific sharing economy approaches, apps, etc.)
  • Sustainable district mobility solutions, such as car-sharing systems, e-bikes and cargo-bikes for delivery services, mobility points with information pillars, etc.
