Demo Project 02: Vision

Accelerate the Future: Co-create a Bold City Vision, to Plan, Implement, Replicate and Scale-Up to Positive Energy Districts and Climate-Neutral Cities

Vision (DP02) in a nutshell

An ambitious, comprehensive, operational and agreed upon city vision is the backbone for becoming climate neutral. DP02 covers the urban, technical, financial and social aspects of a citywide energy transition, and is prepared together with industry through an open process of engagement, public consultation with citizens, urban authorities, and across municipal units. These activities are aligned within a digital roadmap, which identifies the targets and milestones for co-creating, implementing and iterating a Bold City Vision along with the resources and investments required for its delivery.

Problem addressed & specific objective

Traditionally working in silos, municipalities have different and often disconnected strategies for reaching city goals across different domains. By developing a framework for integrated strategy development, cities and municipalities will create strategies that support each other, use open innovation, avoid duplication of effort and costs and a reduction in the resources used for implementation. This will lead to an accelerated pace at which cities can reach their goals and visions.


  • Implement a collaborative culture with citizens and other local stakeholders, combining relevant digital platform(s) with physical engagements.
  • Embed the Positive Energy Block concept in the broader urban energy planning to have better grounding,

The +CxC Bold City Vision approach merges technical, social, spatial, economic, innovation and other perspectives, supporting cities in their quest to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and contribute to a climate-neutral Europe by 2050.

Technical Feasibility Study:

The analysis of technical aspects of a district takes into account the individual building’s energy status and their overall ensemble in the district. The detailed inventory of the energy consumption and production in the PEB buildings and facilities provides an overview of the reduction of the CO2 emissions associated with the PEB establishment, together with the economic and social impacts of the interventions envisaged.
