Project Description

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

Nowadays, energy supply networks in cities – natural gas, electricity and heating/cooling – are almost always planned and operated separately from each other. This “silo-like” approach prevents energy utilities and city planners from: a) identifying opportunities of synergy among the networks, as to increase reliability and robustness of energy supply; b) optimally planning heavy infrastructure investments, thus taking into account future energy demand evolutions while avoiding oversizing.
IntegrCiTy’s overall aim is to foster energy networks interoperability either in existing or future urban infrastructures by developing a dedicated decision-support tool, that shall be applied and tested/validated in three Swiss and Swedish cities.
