Smart City & Energy

Urbanisation, demographic changes and climate change, mobility, energy and environmental issues pose major challenges for growing towns of the future as well as the regions they are located in.

The competitiveness of regions will be increasingly determined in towns. A smart city combines social and technical innovations intelligently in order to create towns as long-term attractive business locations with a high quality of living. In terms of energy, our services have to become more efficient, energy supply has to be prepared for a post-fossil era and our societies for a "zero/low carbon society". The goal is to become more energy-efficient and have more renewable energies in the energy mix. The intelligent interlinking of energy supply, distribution (grids), storage and consumption is an attempt to develop and implement sustainable and smart energy systems.

Based on, and in addition to "Sinfonia", the cluster members are provided with support to develop and implement new cross-industry solutions for buildings, mobility, infrastructure, the supply, distribution and storage of energy in urban environments as well as the necessary planning tools and business models: expertise from the Renewable Energies, IT, Mechatronics and Life Sciences clusters as well as the key area of Industry 4.0 ("Internet of Things") in the IT and Mechatronics clusters as well as the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Smart Energy Solutions initiatives enable holistic concepts and new solutions.
