AN INNOVATION CAMP TO SHOWCASE PEDS AND THEIR INNOVATIVE ENERGY SOLUTIONS
Join the POWER UP YOUR CITY summit, a MAKING-CITY event dedicated to adopting carbon-free energy solutions and driving positive change in urban environments. Explore the transformative concept of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) and their potential to create sustainable and energy-positive communities.
PEDs go beyond traditional sustainability measures by generating more energy than they consume. Through cutting-edge technologies, renewable sources, and efficient infrastructure, PEDs redefine energy consumption in cities. Watch this video to learn more about the concept.
At the POWER UP YOUR CITY summit, our goal is to provide a comprehensive understanding of PEDs and equip participants with the knowledge and tools for this journey. Drawing on the experiences of MAKING-CITY lighthouses Oulu, Finland, and Groningen, Netherlands, we’ll discuss PED implementation, best practices and lessons learned.
Join us at the POWER UP YOUR CITY summit and be part of the conversation to adopt carbon-free energy solutions and transform cities sustainably!
Explore Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) at the final MAKING-CITY event in our Lighthouse city of Groningen. Participate in workshops covering best practices in technological, economic and social aspects. Deepen your understanding by visiting two PED districts in Groningen to see how these districts are helping to develop urban energy with advanced technologies.
