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.
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.
