Craig Martin online lecture

On 11 September, prof. Arjan van Timmeren (Environmental Technology & Design) talked about cities, knowledge institutions, citizens and industries working together on advanced metropolitan solutions.
Examples e.g. from AMS-Institute and City-zen projects (City-zero (carbon) energy in the urban contexts) show that challenges cities face today require a holistic, systemic and transdisciplinary approach that spans different fields of expertise and disciplines.

Craig Martin (Climate Design and Sustainability) told about ‘City-zen roadshows’ on energy transition of neighbourhoods in 10 European cities. For this a team from TU Delft and other academic partners spend five days in a city looking to collaborate with local authorities, citizens and market players.

This lecture is part of a series of six lectures organised by the minor Neighbourhood of the Future, Green Blue Cities.

  • 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.

  • Our Activities

  • Achieved Impacts

    • 20 innovations in Grenoble & Amsterdam
    • 35,000 tonnes CO2 saved per year
    • 76,000 m² renovated residential buildings
