Reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions  in cities across Central Europe
 
With the era of affordable and abundant energy long since past, saving energy and reducing waste has become one of the top priorities of the European Union. There are several possible areas of intervention, with building energy management having one of the greatest potential in terms of cost-effectiveness an overall emission reduction potential. A key part of the solution for better building energy management is a better understanding of our current practices and the status quo, and that includes getting an accurate picture of where heat escapes from buildings. To contribute to these goals, the EnergyCity project is gathering aerial thermography data on 7 cities in Central Europe (Budapest, Prague, Munich, Bologna, Treviso, Ludwigsburg and Velenje), which are then processed and refined into an online Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) to visualize and compare the cost-effectiveness and potential of different renewable energy solutions in the project cities. A series of pilot actions in the seven cities will deliver pilot training for carbon mapping, implement awareness raising campaigns and fuel poverty reduction plans.
