City-zen field trip in Vienna

On 3-5 october 2016, we organised, with our partner Energy Cities, a field trip in Vienna to know more about the city strategy on retrofitting, citizens empowerment and district heating.

Vienna, one of the most livable cities, draws its future in a smart city framework to carry on ensuring quality of life through innovation.


These two days were full of lessons, field visits and exchanges with local partners : City of Vienna, Tina Vienna, Wohnfonds_Wien, Aspern Smart city research, University of Natural Research and Life Sciences (BOKU), EU-Gugle, iC-CES, Wien energie Gmbh.

  • The Project

    A city operating entirely on clean energy. In theory, it's possible. But in real life? How to integrate new solutions in existing buildings, systems and people's lives? What are the technical, economic or social barriers? And how to overcome these? That's what we've learned by doing in 20 projects in Grenoble and Amsterdam.
