In the heterogeneous former industrial area near the main train station „Grazer Hauptbahnhof“ a new energy-autonomous district area will be constructed over the next few years. In an integrative planning process energy technologies for the intelligent „zero emissions“ city shall be demonstrated for the first time. The project contents include

  • the testing of new components such as new solar modules, solar cooling, urban solar power generation, integrated façade technologies, micro CHP, smart head grids
  • the implementation of demonstration buildings (Research Tower, PV pilot plant „Grätzel Cell“, energy center and local energy grid as well as residential and commercial areas with innovative building technologies)
  • concepts for sustainable urban mobility including e-mobility

Our tasks in the projects are in particular the design and implementation of informal planning processes (in addition to the urban planning instruments):

  • Establishment of a city district management for comprehensive information and involvement of citizens, companies and organisations in the project area
  • Support and counselling of competition proceedings
  • Awareness raising / smart consumer coaching
  • Conduction of interviews with experts on urban topics
  • Conduction of „Smart City Awards“
