Funding scheme:IP - Integrated Project
The scientific and technological objectives of the ECO-City development project are to establish a basis for and demonstrate innovative integrated energy concepts in the supply and demand side in three successful Communities in Spain, Denmark/Sweden and Norway. The three Communities all have an advanced energy profile in comparison to other national neighbouring communities. The demonstration activities, which are coordinated with the Communities on-going activities, are based on both the demand (Eco-build/RUE) and the supply of (RES).
All demonstrations will be designed using a "Whole Community Design Approach" in order to ensure the largest energy saving potential possible, and to ensure coherence and end-user involvement in all the activities. The impact of the Swedish/Danish community actions (2000 household equiv. energy cons.):30% reduction in energy demand,100% supply of heat from biomass,100% supply of electricity from wind power,100% waste recycled and recovered for CHP production.
