Energy positive districtDIGITAL TRANSFORMATION INCLUSIVE & SHARING CITIES
A PED constitutes a mix of building types aiming to achieve a positive energy balance at annual basis by optimising the synergy between different building and use forms. Several initiatives haven been started aiming at accelerating the deployment of PEDs. The most prominent one is the EU initiative under SET-Plan, Action 3.2 Smart Cities and Communities that considers ‘Positive Energy Districts’ as driver of sustainable urbanisation. It aims by 2025 to have at least 100 Positive Energy Districts synergistically connected to the energy system. Our workshop will contribute to this initiative, show good practice examples and discuss pathways towards implementation.
