WP6 – Business models and consumers’ value proposition for PEDs
D6.2 – Value generation by PEDs: Best practices case study book:
• In a recent deliverable, we summarize the risks for different types of silo thinking in PED development and propose the an integrated system thinking approach for effective collaboration
• WP6’s first deliverable, titled “Value Generation by PEDs: Best Practices Case Study Book”, uses a case study approach to identify business model archetypes that have the power to create economic, environmental, and social value in PEDs.
D3.2 – Challenging
‘silo thinking’ for promoting PEDs
• WP3’s first deliverable, titled “Challenging ‘silo thinking’ for promoting PEDs” summarizes drivers of silo thinking in the context of PEDs and explores opportunities for leveraging systems thinking in addressing these silos.
WP4 – Techno-economic aspects and pathways towards positive energy districts
D4.2 – Status quo and framework conditions as a basis for developing techno-economic pathways in selected case studies
• The purpose of this report is to present the context that frames the development of potential PEDs
(named as Framework Conditions2
) in a selection of European cities (Frankfurt, Germany; Vienna,
Austria; Nottingham, UK; and Torres Vedras, Portugal). These cities are selected as case studies
because they have expressed the political will to introduce the concept as part of their
decarbonisation strategies and participate as Partners in the Smart-BEEjS project.
D3.4 – Round‐table discussion on local energy transition
• The purpose of this report presents the output of the Smart‐BEEjS round‐table discussion regarding the status quo of the local energy transition, involving a diverse set of eight stakeholders, representing the eight European regions that are participating in the Smart‐BEEjS project (Table 1): Amsterdam
(Netherlands), Canary Islands (Spain), Italy, Ruhr Area (Germany), Switzerland, Nottingham (UK), Torres Vedras (Portugal) and Vienna (Austria). The key theme of the round‐table discussion1 was the perceptions of the stakeholders regarding the main drivers and challenges that these regions face currently in their efforts to deliver a sustainable energy transition. The four dimensions explored during the round‐table were: (a) the level of collaboration among municipalities and citizens in the different regions; (b) critical infrastructure changes and needs for achieving a decentralised energy system; (c) types of social values that might possibly be incorporated into different business models; and, (d) insights into the phenomenon of energy poverty during the energy transition in each region.
D5.3 – Report on “must-read” factors in policy design to tackle energy poverty through PED creation.
• The main aim of this brief is to encourage policy makers and key stakeholders working on the creation of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) and similar low carbon initiatives to incorporate energy poverty reduction within their district design.
D5.2 Development of a Standardised Method for Impact Evaluation of Positive Energy Districts
• This report presents propositions for the elaboration of a standardised method of impact evaluation
for Positive Energy Districts (PEDs). Based on previous experiences seeking to capture, through a series
of KPIs, the impact of different smart and sustainable city concepts, we propose an indicator-centric
approach to evaluate measures against specific PED objectives.
