European City Calculator: Prospective modelling tool supporting public authorities in reaching climate neutrality

Description du projet

Un outil web de modélisation prospective pour la neutralité climatique

De nombreuses villes européennes se sont engagées à devenir climatiquement neutres d’ici 2050 ou avant. Cependant, seules quelques-unes d’entre elles sont parvenues à développer et à mettre en œuvre des stratégies incluant des voies de décarbonisation tangibles. Il apparait donc que les villes ont besoin de s’appuyer sur des outils, des informations et des compétences pour assurer leur transition vers la neutralité climatique. Le projet EUCITYCALC, financé par l’UE, aidera les autorités publiques à planifier la neutralité climatique grâce à la méthode de modélisation prospective ouverte de l’outil web European City Calculator (ECC). L’ECC fournira aux villes des perspectives sectorielles sur le type et l’ambition des mesures ciblées et des scénarios politiques à adopter. Le projet soutiendra dix villes pilotes de l’UE en facilitant l’apprentissage par les pairs, en promouvant un programme de formation et de renforcement des capacités multidimensionnelles et en stimulant l’engagement des parties prenantes locales.

Objectif

In order for Europe’s transition towards climate neutrality to succeed, cities need to be in the driving seat. European cities are at the forefront in addressing climate change, with many having committed to develop and implement SEAPs/SECAPs through initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors. Many cities have also committed to become climate-neutral by 2050 or even earlier. Yet, despite ambitious short- and long-term commitments, only few cities have managed to translate plans into concrete implementation strategies with tangible decarbonisation pathways. In transitioning towards climate neutrality, cities have to overcome complex challenges that cannot be tackled with a business-as-usual approach. For this, cities need to be equipped with tools, information and skills that empower them to become local transition leaders.
This is where EUCityCalc comes into play. Its objective is to support public authorities in planning towards climate neutrality through the prospective modelling approach of the European City Calculator webtool. The European City Calculator is an open-source, prospective modelling tool providing cities with a sectoral outlook on the type and ambition of measures they can take to achieve a transition towards climate neutrality. As a flexible model adapted to territorial specificities and reflecting the city governance, it supports cities in designing tailored transition pathways and policy scenarios.
With the webtool at its core, EUCityCalc will support 10 pilot cities - Riga, Dijon Métropole, Mantova, Zdar, Palmela, Sesimbra, Setubal, Koprivnica, Varazdin, Virovitica - in developing and implementing scientifically robust, detailed and integrated pathways and scenarios towards climate neutrality. Through peer-to-peer learning, a multifaceted capacity-building and training programme and the engagement of local stakeholders in expert working groups, EUCityCalc will empower cities in devising a clear and concrete roadmap towards climate neutrality.
