Welcome to the Roadmaps for Energy Project (R4E Project). This project is the result of a great effort and willingness from 10 European partners for improving the quality of life of their citizens while being respectful with the use of energy resources.
The Project coordinator is the city of Eindhoven (NL), while Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), more specifically the TU/e LightHouse, experienced in developing Visions & Roadmaps for municipalities, has a major role in the process of R4E, supporting and guiding each partner city through the entire process.
This project will focus its efforts in planning and rolling out realistic and affordable actions towards creating innovative energy policies within the fields of smart buildings, smart mobility and smart urban spaces.
The consortium formed by the cities of Eindhoven, Newscatle, Istambul, Palermo, Tallinn, Murcia, Sant Cugat del Vallés, Forli, TU/e and the UPC (Polytechnic University of Catalonia) held the kick off meeting in Eindhoven on 3 and 4 march 2015.
During the project, with a total duration of 3 years, a number of workshops with local stakeholders will be hold as part of the planning of the project. The project partners will contact companies and organisations involved in energy related topics and more specific to the focus areas of smart buildings, smart mobility and smart urban spaces to take part in these workshops. Some of such expected stakeholders are: public transport organizations or contractors, housing associations, energy suppliers and of course public sector decision and policy makers from the partners cities.
The involvement of these different stakeholders is crucial to enrich and make possible the process of developing valuable and reliable roadmaps for the themes of the project.
