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
R2CITIES has participated in the Genoa Smart Week
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.
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.
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.
Between 16 and 20 June, R2CITIES partner, Genoa Municipality played host to over ten events, not including several satellite events, designed to pave the way forward for green urban policy
New technologies and energy management could soon lead to sustainable cities.
This progress meeting, led by coordinator Rubén García from Fundación CARTIF, and hosted by Genoa Municipality, marked the end of the first year of R2CITIES.
Three projects, R2CITIES, EU-GUGLE and ZenN, involving 15 municipalities have decided to join forces for greater leverage
in sharing and promoting energy efficient renovation solutions for cities and communities EU-wide.
