CITYOPT will create a set of applications and guidelines supporting efficient planning, detailed design and operation of energy systems in urban districts. It will consider appropriate service business models, privacy and trust and will involve users in all project phases.


CITYOPT has developed a toolset for optimising energy systems in smart cities. These tools will show how to prioritise alternative energy solution scenarios based on social, economic and environmental criteria.

Planning tool - support analysing, simulating, optimizing and communicating city planning alternatives. A holistic approach integrates energy dynamics of local grids and buildings, consumption behaviours, energy storage, and local energy production using renewables. Read more


Operational tool - increase optimisation opportunities related to user behaviour, like residential demand response schemes for inhabitants to participate in online-optimization, and visualizations to engage users. Read more
