Project Description

Decision-support environment for planning and integrating multi-energy networks and low-carbon resources in cities

Almost everyone in a city, no matter what their circumstance, requires gas, electricity and heating. They are fundamental to any basic standard of living. However, even in the 21st century these vital utilities are almost always operated separately to each other. This “silo like” approach prevents city planners from two key things. Firstly, it prevents identification of opportunities for synergy in networks, which would increase the reliability and robustness of the energy supply. Secondly, it stops any optimal planning of any heavy infrastructure investments, which would take into account the evolution of future energy demands whilst avoiding oversizing at the same time. Therefore, InterCiTy’s overall aim is to foster interoperability of energy networks within both existing and future urban infrastructure. It shall do this by developing a decision-support IT tool which focuses on an integrated approach to multi-energy supply networks. The expectation is that this tool will allow for the evaluation of every aspect of energy use in an integrated, simultaneous approach. The project will take place in the cities of Vevey, Geneva, and Stockholm.
