Lublin, Poland

With more than 340,000 inhabitants, Lublin is the largest city of Eastern Poland and one of the 6 “Follower cities” involved in the MAKING-CITY project.

Two areas located in the Wieniawa district have been selected to replicate the PED concept developed in MAKING-CITY.


Located in the Wieniawa district, the two areas selected to replicate the PED concept elaborated in MAKING-CITY are both a mix between public and residential buildings: schools, universities, cultural centre, municipal offices…

In Poland, Lublin was the first city to introduce a “green civic budget”. The city committed to reduce by 23% its gas emissions and by 9,5% its energy consumption in the 2008 Low Carbon Economy Plan.

The PED replication developed by the MAKING-CITY partners will mainly include:

  • the retrofitting of buildings (windows, high efficient insulation…)
  • the installation of more renewables power stations and their connection to the entire district
  • the implementation of an intelligent urban lighting management system
