SPACERGY concerns research into ‘Energy Sensitive Cities’, to achieve inclusive, shared visions, collaboration and informed acting by planners and decision makers, in joint coalitions with users and other stakeholders.

The project will help increase knowledge on reciprocities and beneficial interactions of spatial aspects of urban developments, energy and mobility infrastructures. To do so research is related to real-life urban developments and stakeholders in four different locations. Based upon in-depth modelling and action research with stakeholders it will provide guidelines to support informed decision making, to be applied in other developments throughout Europe.
