Sharing Cities consortium meeting took place in Royal Borough Greenwich in London from 19 to 22 September. The theme of the consortium meeting was 'Delivery and Innovation through Collaboration' with the partners sharing their experiences of implementing innovative trials in the fields of building retrofit, smart energy management systems, electric mobility, smart lampposts, data platforms and citizen engagement. Sharing Cities works with the borough's Low Emission Neighbourhood (LEN) programme to implement new schemes to tackle local air quality. The Royal Borough also took the opportunity to launch a brand new project called Zero Emission Deliveries (ZED), which aims to reduce congestion and poor air quality in Greenwich caused by delivery vehicles. In addition, the Borough launched an electric bike loan scheme for its residents.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement N°691895
