PLEEC - Planning for Energy Efficient Cities (2013-2016)

PLEEC - Planning for Energy Efficient Cities

SPS conducted case studies in three cities as a contribution to the PLEEC – Planning for Energy Efficient Cities project between 2013-2016.

SPS had a significant contribution to PLEEC (Planning for Energy Efficient Cities), by conducting case studies in three cities. As energy transition and efficiency are high on the European agenda, PLEEC sought to understand and describe urban strategies for energy efficiency holistically, by mapping a variety of urban experiences, policies and projects tackling energy efficiency in a number of European cities. PLEEC was funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme and sought integrative approaches to achieve sustainable and energy efficient cities in order to attain the EU’s objective of improving energy consumption by 20% in 2020. The project had 18 partners from 13 European countries. By seeking to coordinate strategies and com-bine best practices, PLEEC sought to develop a general model for energy efficiency and sustainable city planning.
