The CITyFiED Project consist of an integrated strategy to adapt existing European cities into the future smart cities through the implementation of technologies and methodologies for the sustainable urban renovation.
According to this line of action, the main targets to be achieved during the project development are the following:
A big impact across Europe is intend to be achieved by the CITyFiED project results, thanks to its replicability, and it is expected to mean a step forward in the strategies for energy city renovations towards near zero energy districts.
The development of an innovative methodology for urban renovation at city scale is one of the most relevant contribution from Acciona in the CITyFiED Project. This methodology is conceived from the sustainable perspective and though a global and holistic vision, including economic, social and environmental aspects.
Acciona also participates in the study of different technical solutions to be applied in the façades of buildings to reduce thermal demand with significant implication in Laguna de Duero (Spain) demo site. In this demonstrator case, Acciona collaborates in the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodology during the execution of works.
Finally and with less participation, cooperates in other project topics as, i.e., the definition of innovative business models able to cover the particularities of this scale of intervention.
Through these tasks ACCIONA is involved in several of the relevant scientific and technical objectives of the project as well as the promotion of sustainability and the adaptation of existing municipalities to smart cities.
60 months, from April 2014 to March 2019.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement N° 609129.
