    Creating Smarter Cities 2011 - 23 - Karen Fraser - EU Smart Cities and Communities Initiative Creating Smarter Cities 2011 - 23 - Karen Fraser - EU Smart Cities and Communities Initiative Presentation Transcript

    • EU Smart Cities & Communities Initiative 1 July 2011Karen FraserScotland Europa
    • Agenda Quick introduction to Scotland Europa Setting the scene: EU policy context What is a Smart City? The Smart Cities and Communities Initiative EU Funding for Smart Cities Scotland Europa/ Scottish engagement
    • Scotland Europa- Who we are Scottish Enterprise Members (public, Scottish private, Development academic) International
    • Scotland Europa Members
    • Our teamDedicated EU Policy & Funding resources for SE/SDI, members &Scottish companies Scotland Team Brussels Team  EU Funding specialists –  Experienced staff focusing strategic EU funding on EU policy – early support, project warning, interpretation & development & analysis compliance  Direct links with  Close collaboration with Commission & other National Contact Points regional & national  Working in partnership representations in Brussels with Enterprise Europe Scotland and Scottish  Engagement with EU European Green Energy business networks & Centre associations e.g. EURADA, ERRIN
    • Setting the scene: EU policy context  Europe 2020 Strategy  Successor to Lisbon Strategy: strategy for smart, sustainable & inclusive growth  An exit strategy to lift Europe from the economic & financial crisis  Responding to existing challenges: globalisation, ageing, climate change, pressure on resources Smart growth ─ Flagship initiatives: Innovation Union; Digital agenda; Youth on the move Sustainable growth ─ Flagship initiatives: Resource efficient Europe; An industrial policy for the globalisation era Inclusive growth ─ Flagship initiatives: An agenda for new skills & jobs; Platform against poverty
    • Setting the scene: EU policy context  Three broad “pillars” of EU Energy policy: Internal Climate security Supply change market  Climate Change & Energy package: 20% renewables 20% less emissions 20% efficiency 2020  Towards 80-95% less emissions by 2050: Low carbon economy Roadmap Low carbon Energy Future of energy system Efficiency Transport Roadmap Plan White Paper
    • Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Implementation of European Industrial Initiatives, Estimated investment needs to 2020: Bio- Smart Wind Grid Solar CCS energy Nuclear Cities €6 bn €2 bn €16 bn €13 bn €9 bn €7 bn €11 bn
    • What is a Smart City? Building on Existing Initiatives  CONCERTO Renewables & efficiency in energy systems 58 Communities; 22 projects  CIVITAS Clean & energy efficient urban transport system 25 cities; 5 projects  Covenant of Mayors Energy efficiency & renewables 2595 cities  Green Digital Charter ICT for energy efficiency 23 cities
    • What is a Smart City? Key Aims Implementing climate goals, especially energy efficiency Accelerating large scale deployment of innovative low carbon technologies Sharing best practice: technological, economic & organisational solutions Local economic development Engagement of citizens Social factors
    • Smart Cities and Communities Initiative: ‘Philosophy’ Identify common challenges Develop innovative, replicable solutions Bundle demand from cities Attract and involve business and banks Create markets!
    • Smart Cities and Communities Initiative: Main Characteristics Technology focus Priority for energy efficiency SET Plan time horizon : 10 years programme Competitive process based on calls for proposals Stakeholder platform  to provide input to the initiative  to facilitate knowledge sharing and replication
    • What is a Smart City? Criteria Holistic, long term planning e.g. Covenant of Mayors –Sustainable Energy Action Plans to achieve 20% CO2 reductions by 2020 Surpassing EU energy & climate goals Partnership Strong commitment at local level; Engagement of public, private & academic partners, as well as communities Transnational collaboration Replicable projects Potential to unlock markets Innovation Cutting edge exemplar cities, but also learning cities?No population threshold
    • Smart Cities and Communities Initiative: Building BlocksEnergy Energy in cities Planning and modelling of flows Energy networks Electricity and heating & cooling; improved components, systems and data flows Buildings Energy consumption in public & private buildings, Retrofitting Supply technologies Electricity and heating & cooling, local production
    • Building blocks (continued) Transport Improve interconnections, inter-modal and co-modal transport; Improve public transport, non-motorised transport, passenger and freight logistics; Low carbon vehicles ICT Cross-cutting applications related to energy or transport Modelling of energy flows
    • EU Funding for Smart Cities  2007-13  No big new funds  Making use of existing instruments, budgets  Specific calls designed for Smart Cities agenda  Greater priority for low carbon, energy agenda  2014-20  New instruments?  More emphasis on financial instruments, less grant  Bigger budgets?  Greater priority for low carbon, energy agenda?  Possibility of dedicated fund for SET-Plan?
    • EU Funding for Smart Cities: FP7 Energy Smart Cities 2012 Budget € 75 million  Demonstration of nearly Zero Energy Building Renovation for cities and districts  Heating and cooling technologies for large-scale systems for urban areas  Strategic sustainable planning and screening of city plans In total 10 projects of at least 3 cities Time frame: 19 July – 1 December 2011
    • EU Funding for Smart Cities: Other FP7 Areas Energy  Smart Energy Networks  Renewable Energy Generation ICT  Smart Energy Grids  ICT for Efficient Water Resources Management  Cooperative Systems for Energy Efficient and Sustainable Mobility  ICT for Energy-Positive Neighbourhoods  ICT for Fully Electric Vehicles PPP Energy Efficient Buildings Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking
    • Intelligent Energy Europe  Non-technical barriers, capacity building - soft actions, no hardware  Generally minimum three partners, three member states  Themes – renewables, energy efficiency, transport  Specific Smart Cities calls 2011:  Local energy leadership – transnational  integration of sustainable energy policies in operations – development and implementation of SEAPs  cooperation between public authorities and other actors, particularly energy companies e.g. data sharing  Mobilising local energy investments – technical assistance Closed 12 May
    • Technical Assistance / Project Development ELENA / EEE-F Technical Assistance  project development services for investment programmes & projects  grants up to 90% technical assistance  local authorities & other public bodies  Companies working on their behalf e.g. transport operator, ESCOs  High leverage private investment expected
    • Investment FundsEuropean Energy Efficiency Fund (EEE – F)  EUR 125 m EEPR + EUR 75m EIB = at least EUR 200m  Other financial institutions asked to join fund  “Bankable” energy saving, energy efficiency, renewables projects  Promoted by local or national public authorities e.g. energy efficiency in buildings (public and private), CHP, micro- generation, decentralised renewables, district heating / cooling, transport, modernisation infrastructure – street lighting, smart grids  Risk capital fund – loans, guarantees, equityEuropean Investment Bank  Loans, guarantees, equity  Risk Sharing Finance Facility (R&D, linked to FP7)
    • Scotland Europa / Scottish engagement Scottish Steering Group Scottish Government, Scotland Europa, Scottish European Green Energy Sector Public and private sector Scope for collaborative activity Individual cities Pursuing sustainable energy plans and a range of projects European Commission consultation Position papers from Scotland Europa & Scottish Government Individual stakeholder responses European networks ERRIN, Eurocities etc. – brokerage events, partnerships
