Residential Renovation towards nearly zero energy CITIES
Develop and demonstrate replicable strategies for designing, constructing and managing large scale district renovation projects for achieving nearly zero energy cities
The social housing district of Lavatrici was developed during 1980-1990. The pilot is located on the west part of the city in the so called Pegli 3 District on a natural hill.

The use of low efficiency lighting systems and appliances and a slim insulation means very high energy consumption for Yakacık district of Kartal, Istanbul and therefore a high potential for improving.
A complete retrofitting based on façade improvements, ICTs and renewable energy systems will be implemented in the Cuatro de Marzo district, the demo site chosen for the R2CITIES project.
In Genoa, Italy, there are tenants who only pay as little as €50 in rent for a small apartment in a social housing estate, but this is only part of the story.
Mayors of cities in Europe and its Mediterranean neighbourhood have committed to acting together to ensure the transition to a more energy-efficient model based on the use of renewables and the reduction of CO2 emissions
For the second time since our project’s inception in 2013, the city of Genoa has hosted a R2CITIES periodic meeting. And again, it was all designed to coincide with the city’s Smart Week – a series of meetings, workshops and debates on energy-related topics at various venues throughout Genoa.
MySmartCityDistrict group now extends to CITyFiED, SINFONIA, READY and City-zen. A total of 7 projects for greater leverage
in sharing and promoting energy efficient renovation solutions for cities and communities EU-wide.
