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
