Eurocities is hosting a series of replication and scale-up webinars with Sharing Cities.
Join us for the fourth webinar about Sustainable Energy Management Systems on 8 September 2020, 11:00 - 12:15 CEST
This webinar will explore Sustainable Energy Management Systems (SEMS) through two case studies from lighthouse cities. Tools for replication, scale-up and implementation in other cities will also be presented. After the presentations, we invite all participants to join the discussion, ask questions and share their experiences. We are looking forward to an engaging exchange!
Cities account for about 65% of global energy demand. The generation and consumption of energy poses challenges for urban areas: energy poverty, network reinforcement costs associated with increased electrification, and load balancing.
The Sustainable Energy Management System (SEMS) is a modular system which centralises information from, and control over, many local energy systems and devices. SEMS integrates heat, power, transport, and the built environment, combining data connectivity and the internet of things to optimise energy systems and strategies. The SEMS helps to process data inputs in real time; improving decision making, reducing system inefficiencies, and delivering financial, social and environmental benefits.
About this event
Since 2016, the lighthouse cities of Lisbon, London and Milan have implemented ten smart city measures in the framework of the project Sharing Cities. Based on this knowledge and technical experience, Sharing Cities is launching a series of short technical webinars to explore the measures one by one: digital social market, e-bikes, building retrofit, sustainable energy management system, smart lampposts, e-mobility, and urban sharing platform. Each measure is also supported by a smart booklet and playbook which go into greater detail on how to replicate and scale-up the solution in your city.

The Sharing Cities ‘lighthouse’ project is a testbed for finding better, common approaches to making smart cities a reality. By fostering international collaboration between industry and cities, the project aims to develop affordable, integrated, commercial-scale smart city solutions with high market potential. Sharing Cities is a part of a family of projects that make up the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP SCC01 – Lighthouse Projects).
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement N°691895
