Holistic optimisation leading to integration of sustainable technolgies in communities

Objective

The HOLISTIC project aims to stimulate a paradigm shift in the use of energy within communities to more sustainable patterns. It will demonstrate how this transformation can be initiated in three typical communities by acting on every aspect of community life. The project is based in three selected zones in Dundalk (Ireland), Mödling (Austria) and Neuchâtel (Switzerland) each of which is representative of a typical community, since they contain within their borders every aspect of community life - housing, school, hospital, hotel, shops, leisure facilities and industry.

Virtually all renewable technologies and a range of technologies for the rational use of energy will be demonstrated within the project, as well as technologies and techniques for managing supply and demand. The project will demonstrate that action taken on all aspects of a community, not just sub-sets of it, and using the most appropriate technology solution for each case brings improved results which are of wide applicability.
