Energy Positive Neighbourhoods (EPNs) are those in which the annual energy demand is lower than the energy supply from local renewable energy sources . The IDEAS project strives to demonstrate how EPNs can be cost-effectively and incrementally implemented by designing, testing and validating energy management and urban planning tools and related user interfaces and business models in a residential neighbourhood in Porvoo Finland and a university campus in Bordeaux, France. This paper presents preliminary results on ICT-supported business in EPNs that will be validated through real case demonstrations .
