City-zen roadshow in Belfast – Part II

City-by-City, the collaborative Roadshow methodology will be further developed. In order to address these city challenges effectively, the Roadshow makes use of two contextually dependent approaches. One designed by TU Delft, focusing on energy synergies, the other being a creative design project that responds to spatial & social questions. This is complemented by a trade show, showcasing innovative technologies among which those demonstrated by City-zen partners in Amsterdam and Grenoble. These approaches will overlap during each Roadshow to develop a holistic vision, which will be ‘owned’ by each city. Now Belfast.

  • 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.
