Smart-BEEjS – Human-Centric Energy Districts: Smart Value Generation by Building Efficiency and Energy Justice for Sustainable Living
Promoting the local fight against global climate change
Positive energy districts aim to tackle energy poverty and injustice by generating local, decentralised, innovative energy ecosystems, and empowering consumers. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network programme, the Smart-BEEjS project is studying and supporting cities and communities in their goal to produce more energy than they use. It considers policy, technology and the needs of society and citizens to explore how to transition to local, carbon-neutral systems of energy production that meet the needs of all energy consumers. The project complements the EU’s Strategic Energy Technology Plan, which aims to establish ‘100 positive energy districts by 2025 (baseline 2015) and 80 % of electricity consumption to be managed by consumers in 4 out of 5 households’.
