About the PED Programme:
The Programme on Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods (PED Programme) has the ambition to support the planning, deployment and replication of 100 ‘Positive Energy Districts’ across Europe by 2025 for urban transition and sustainable urbanisation. Positive Energy Districts will raise the quality of life in European cities, contribute to reaching the COP21 targets and enhancing European capacities and knowledge to become a global role model. The Programme on Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods has been established in 2018 by the Action 3.2 on Smart Cities and Communities of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan. The transnational Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe provides a well-established Programme Management Structure for the PED Programme. Solid understanding and consideration of cities’ strategies towards PEDs, experiences and support needs serve as the base of developing and designing of the programme. This is why the PED programme aims at a strong engagement of city authorities, research organisation, public utility provider and industry and citizens’ organisation in the programme implementation.
