Project description

PED-ID – Identification of Positive Energy Districts (PED)

In the transnational research project PED-ID will design assessment tools and processes to facilitate the development of plus-energy districts in the future. Decision makers can thus be provided with improved information at an early stage and a corresponding data-based participation process can be created. The project is carried out by e7 in cooperation with the project partners SEVEn, The Energy Efficiency Center (CZ), the Technical University of Prague (CZ), White Arkitekter (SE) and Sustainable innovation AB (SE).

The project is funded by the European research program JPI Urban Europe.

Structured method for accelerating decision-making processes

A structured method will be developed to collect relevant data on the potential PED area. The data will be processed accordingly and subsequently prepared for appropriate target groups. The target groups can actively use these in the data-driven participation process, consolidate their opinions and make decisions based on data.

This process will be tested using real Living Labs of potential PED projects in Austria, Czech Republic and Sweden. This concerns the participation process and the elaboration of the necessary data. With the help of this method, the decision on PED sites will be accelerated in order to reach the goal of 100 PED sites in Europe.

JPI Urban Europe – the knowledge hub for urban transitions

JPI Urban Europe was created to address the global urban challenges of today with the ambition to develop a European research and innovation hub on urban matters and create European solutions by means of coordinated research.

Under the Plus Energy Districts (PED) call, JPI Urban Europe sought transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners to advance urban PED implementations and establish cross-national exchange of experiences. These collaborations are intended to help facilitate knowledge transfer and learning from different European contexts, cities, and countries to create greater engagement and understanding in PED implementation processes.
