Project Description

The modern smart city faces a host of issues that need to be tackled, such as improving energy services, transport services, and governance methods. However, it makes little sense to look at these things in isolation; in fact, they have to be viewed in an integrated way. DESENT is a project which aims to do just that. It will create a decision support tool for urban energy and transport usage. This tool will be highly individualised, which means data will be more specific and therefore more useful. The project will develop a smart energy control concept which will look at household and vehicular energy use together. This decision support system will then be integrated into smart grids which can take this information into account. This will result in a high-resolution picture of the activity of individuals and their trip patterns. Furthermore, it will help predict energy consumption of individuals in buildings and for their transport needs. The project will be conducted in the cities of Weiz, Austria; Helmond, the Netherlands; and Steinkjer, Norway.
