Discussions on defining a PED framework are very much in focus, since there are several European-wide approaches towards the topic (as can be seen in the Booklet of Positive Energy Districts in Europe). A PED framework needs to cover cities’ actual needs and challenges, deal with conflicting targets, be precise enough to set up clear implementation strategies and at the same time be wide enough to include different local or regional pre-conditions for PEDs across the continent. Last but not least: How does it relate to integrated urban strategies or climate targets?
The Urban Lunch Talk provides an overview of approaches and encourages participants to engage in a discussion on a PED framework.
