Project: EU project

Project Details


RESPONSE aims to turn energy sustainability into a do-able vision by solving the energy trilemma (security, equity/affordability, environmental sustainability) at building, block and district levels in smart cities. RESPONSE builds upon intelligent integrated and interconnected energy systems coupled with demand-oriented city infrastructures, governance models and services that foster energy sustainability. RESPONSE will inject locally produced renewable energy in the energy mix, while optimising the operations of the energy systems by integrating storage technologies and smart grid solutions along with advanced monitoring, control and automation. Its partners will also establish an open and collaborative ecosystem allowing the deployment of citizen-centric design and cocreation initiatives for energy sustainability. The generated solutions will be turned into successful business cases through demonstration and will eventually be replicated through sustainable business models and novel financing schemes at EU-wide scale. This way, RESPONSE acts locally to generate a global positive impact on energy sustainability and climate change.
