SCIS demonstration and urban planning projects

STACCATO

With the STACCATO project three European capital districts - Amsterdam-Noord (Amsterdam, the Netherlands), Óbuda (Budapest, Hungary) and Oborishte (Sofia, Bulgaria) - demonstrated sustainable energy concepts in existing representative residential areas. The urban areas all faced technical arrears and a lack of social cohesion. These large-scale... Continue reading
