Shaping the future of energy together
The success of the energy transition depends not only on advancing the expansion of renewable energy but also on holistically redesigning urban energy supply. TransUrban.NRW demonstrates how innovative and sustainable heat transition can be achieved in cities and neighborhoods. TransUrban.NRW is among the winners of the "Real-world Labs of the Energy Transition" idea competition, where future-proof energy technologies are tested in practice. This funding project promotes climate protection in the heating supply of a structural transformation region through innovative solutions. A consortium of 12 companies and associated partners from the real estate industry, research, and the energy sector is focusing on fifth-generation energy systems. These low-CO2 heat and cold supply systems play the role of modern energy platforms. The goal is to achieve an optimal balance of different neighborhood needs through intelligent networking and the use of digital processes to leverage optimization potential and synergies.
