Analysis of innovative technical solutions

This report summarizes the main results of the cities‘ analyses of innovative technical solutions for new urban developments. The main objective of this analysis is to identify innovative technical solutions for low-carbon development and analyze the implications for urban energy planning processes. The analysis was carried out in order to highlight commonalities and differences relevant for future city developments.

Review of current governance processes of urban and energy planning in Amsterdam/Zaanstad, Berlin, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna, Warsaw and Zagreb

In each participating city, the project team supported by a Local Working Group analysed its urban planning processes to find out how energy issues are currently dealt with. They investigated important factors influencing these processes either at city level or above (regional or national level). These analyses were summarised in internal working papers (“city reports”) for Amsterdam/Zaanstad, Berlin, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna, Warsaw and Zagreb. This report presents the status quo across all cities and for each city as of June 2016. It is based on the city reports, interviews, meetings of the Local Working Groups and beyond as well as on exchanges between the cities.

Integrating energy in urban planning processes –
insights from Amsterdam/Zaanstad, Berlin, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna, Warsaw and Zagreb

Based on the analyses before (see deliverable 4.1), the cities developed proposals for an energy-related upgrade of their governance processes. The output was approaches of upgraded governance processes in each city. It includes a set of ideas and suggestions as to how and where to integrate energy issues to meet the challenges of an energy transition. Moreover, the approaches are not only covering the planning process(es), but also the legal framework, strategies or changes in organisation. This report provides the big picture and a comprehensive overview of all developed approaches. It is based on the city reports of the approaches, interviews, inputs of the Local Working Groups and beyond as well as on exchanges between the cities.
