The SmartEnCity final publication on "The Journey towards Zero Carbon Emissions - A Travel Guide for Cities" is now available for download and will soon be at hand as a printed copy as well. Download your digital copy already now!

Learn about the various intelligent and innovative solutions that have been developed in our three Lighthouse Cities Vitoria-Gasteiz, Tartu and Sonderborg. In this booklet, we have collected their best practices: all presented solutions have been tested by the SmartEnCity partners and are suitable for replication in other cities. Plus, we are also sharing our worst practices, so that certain mistakes can be avoided in the future.

The publication also contains more information about our biggest outcome, the Cities4ZERo strategy, which provides a step-by-step guide on how cities can shape their path to zero emissions. Starting from an Integrated Energy Plan, there are dedicated steps from planning to realisation, which are presented in detail in the second half of this booklet. Moreover, the two SmartEnCity Follower Cities Lecce (Italy) and Asenovgrad (Bulgaria) give practical insights into their experiences regarding the application of this method.

As the involvement of citizens from the very beginning is the key to success, we share insights from key stakeholders in the project. And to further spread the knowledge of SmartEnCity across Europe, we introduce the SmartEnCity network, a strong community of ambitious cities with the goal of supporting each other.

If you are a city that is interested in becoming more climate-neutral yourself, and even if you are already in the process towards your own zero carbon transition, have a look at our publication and learn from the SmartEnCity way! 

In a way, we thus consider this booklet as a travel guide to start the smart zero carbon emission journey in your own city. Have a good trip!
