KADIKOY

Istanbul, Turkey

With more than 450,000 inhabitants, Kadıköy is one of the central districts of the metropolitan area of Istanbul and also one of the “Follower cities” involved in the MAKING-CITY project. 

Hasanpaşa and Caferağa are the two districts selected to replicate the PED approach developed in MAKING-CITY.

PED REPLICATION

As one of the signatories of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, Kadıköy aims at reducing its carbon gas emissions by 20% in 2020, and by 40% in 2030 (2015 Paris Agreement). Two highly urbanised neighbourhoods have been selected to replicate the PED concept developed in the MAKING-CITY project: Hasanpaşa and Caferağa. 

Main actions to replicate the PED concept carried out in the MAKING-CITY project are:

  • the retrofitting of buildings (windows, high efficient insulation…)
  • the installation of solar panels on the roofs of some buildings and car parks
  • the use of solar thermal panels to produce hot water
