KIC- EIT Co-location Benelux Intelligent, energy efficient buildings and cities are the key to sustainable development! Jan H. Blom
From minimal dissatisfaction to a sustainable energy-positive built environment • Buildings today: • consume ~ 37% world energy • exploit ~ 40% of world resources • produce ~ 40% of world waste • 2050: Indoor environmental quality optimized for health, comfort and/or productivity, while considering ecological/ climatic requirements and economics • Multiscale/ multiphysics and transdisciplinary approach • Address technological solutions for energy generation, storage, distribution and conservation • Integrate and optimize in design, construction and operation of new and existing buildings • Combine, tune and integrate infrastructures for distribution of energy, transport and waste disposal
The topic Intelligent, Energy Efficient Buildings and Cities
Vision Highly visible pilots • Urban environments are the key areasin an sustainable future since they account for the major part of the population and the energy use in the EU and worldwide. A new role for cities as “centers of excellence”is emerging • Evolution towards CO2 neutrality is irreversible • The full trias energetica including system integration will form an essential element in this evolution; this includes that energy efficiency of buildings, installations and end-user behaviour are an important starting point. (Sources: SET-plan EII roadmaps smart cities, smart grids, E2B,…) Energy system integration with strong end-user focus
Vision Integration different energysources • The EU ambitions towards 80% renewable energy supplyrequires efforts on all levels, including large integration of local distributed renewables; there is a tendency towards larger electrificationof the energy system (e.g. electric transport); integration of different energy sources remains essential • All high level roadmaps on sustainable cities integrate transport, buildings and grid aspects. • Visible sustainability and a social attractive living environment are essential for inhabitants; this is possible through a holistic approach where the energy aspect forms an integral part together with urban planning, cradle to cradle approaches,… (Sources: SET-plan EII roadmaps smart cities, smart grids, E2B,…) Integration building, transport, grid In term integration with other urban aspects

Covenant of mayors • The Covenant of Mayors is a commitment by signatory towns and cities to go beyond the objectives of EU energy policy in terms of reduction in CO2 emissions through enhanced energy efficiency and cleaner energy production and use.
City networks • Energie-Cités is the association of European local authorities promoting local sustainable energy policies. • The association created in 1990 represents now more than 1000 towns and cities in 26 countries. EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities, covering the local governments of more than 140 large cities in over 30 European countries.
Future cities and transport (FoCit)/Urban Europe Joint program UrbanEurope The vision of the proposed JPI URBAN EUROPE is to fundamentally rethink and manage the dynamics of urban development in Europe to sustain and enhance urban areas as a place of vitality, liveability and accessibility for future generation..
