Project: Sustainable and Resource Efficient Cities - Holistic simulation and optimization for smart cities.

SURECITY´s mission is to support smart city level integration of policies and measures towards a low carbon energy system including mobility services, keeping sustainability goals on air quality, sustainable land-use, efficient water use, job creation and improved governance supporting to the local authorities, companies and citizens to develop and analyze sustainable energy and transport strategies and markets and also to incentivize the creation of new business models. To do so, SURECITY will develop a software platform which bridge scientific models to perform holistic and optimal assessments to design local energy and emission abatement strategies in the medium- and long-term for neighborhoods and cities and the end users, i.e. municipalities, citizens and companies, allowing to design and assess the social, technological and economic impact of measures in all major economic sectors. Stakeholders, e.g. enterprises, municipalities and regional government, will be closely involved into the definition of requirements and functionalities of the platform to maximize the development of new services and business models including the design and assessment of policy, market measures and strategies. The SURECITY’s platform will be implemented and validated within three cities: Almada (PT), Malmö (SE) and Judenburg (AT).
