"Informed Cities Forum 2010 - Research into Practice" by D. Slater, Newcastle City Council

  1. 1. Informed Cities Forum 2010 - Research Into Practice David Slater, Executive Director of Environment & Regeneration Newcastle City Council
  2. 2. Sustainable City AwardIndependent evaluation by national body Air quality Newcastle 20 Recycling Biodiversity 15 Economy Waste 10 5 Food Eco Footprint 0 Climate change Employment Green Space Transport Health Education http://www.forumforthefuture.org.uk/
  3. 3. Newcastle Declaration on Climate Change• Declaration is a short policy statement of our intensions around climate change mitigation for the City.• It is supported by our Sustainable Energy Action Plan• Behind this we have research to inform building level interventions…..Newcastle Carbon Routemap
  4. 4. Newcastle Declaration on Climate Change• Ensure that every home that can benefit from cavity and loft insulation has been treated by 2015.• Deliver low carbon energy solutions across the city including community based energy schemes, solid wall insulation and renewable energy generation.• Support the city’s businesses in reducing their carbon emissions by 34% by 2020• Do all we can to support “green collar” jobs in sectors like marine and offshore technology.• Develop the Science Central site as the focal point for applied research and practice by the public and private sectors across the whole sustainability field• Eradicate fuel poverty as far as is practicable by 2016 by both improving energy efficiency and increasing household incomes• Support work with the residents to reduce their energy consumption by 10% through behavioural change and other low cost measures• Support the development and introduction of electric vehicles across the North East, including the expansion of charging points powered by renewable energy where practicable.• Promote lower carbon methods of travel, aiming for a 4% reduction in fuel use through walking, cycling and better use of public transport by 2020• Stimulate and encourage the production and consumption of locally grown products and services
  5. 5. Covenant of Mayors – Sustainable Energy Action Plan
  6. 6. Research to support City’s efforts towards sustainability – example of Newcastle Carbon Routemap• Co-funded by the Science City Partnership and City Council• Concentrating on Domestic sector first• Collating relevant information on existing building stock into GIS: – Building Type, Age, Tenure, Orientation, Occupancy, Energy profile, thermal efficiency, – Links with developments and geography of different parts of the city (best energy solutions) – Aims to target efforts & translate carbon reduction scenario into delivery plans – Key research to inform retrofit and regeneration projects – Helps delivery on the key commitments in Newcastle Declaration & SEAP
  7. 7. • Identify south facing roofs – PV & solar thermal
  8. 8. Where are the solid wall properties?
  9. 9. Heat Networks – what are the heat loads? Heating Load Primary Mains Route Energy Centre
  10. 10. Many other research programmesWe have many further areas of collaboration underway:• Eco-Neighbourhood Project• Transport & emissions & congestion• Science City Partnership• Act 2• Retrofit for the Future
