This project pretends to move forward with the urban energy savings. Based on a three cornerstones procedure, the SUI project aims at a whole new urban planning that allows cities to grow in a sustainable way.
Consequently, we develop an innovative new concept for city planning, where cities are arranged and grow through small integrated areas. We will probe Smart Urban Isle as innovative basic energy unit in the Smart City.
Investigation, implementation and validation of energy neutral ‘Smart Urban Isles’ (SUI), defined as ‘areas around a public building, which make use of the synergies between different (building) functions and of the scale advantages for energy (storage) solutions’.
