Peter Lindlahr - City of Hamburg - Hamburg's Approach to Sustainable Development & Smart Growth

  1. 1. Presentation_ID © 2008 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. Cisco Public 1
  2. 2. Facing the climate challenge - Hamburg’s approach to sustainable development and smart growth Peter Lindlahr The City of Hamburg Head of the Coordination Center for Climate Issues 2
  3. 3. Who we are, and where we come from – a brief introduction… Germany’s second largest city and one of 16 federal states with a population of 1.7 M in the city and more than 4 M in the metropolitan area Second largest port & aviation technology center in Europe Green city on the waterside (40 % green and water spaces) Rich variety in the metropolitan region (14 counties) Annual CO2-emissions will decrease by 2 M tons within 5 years as compared to now (almost -30% p.c. since 1990) as laid out in the recently launched Climate Action Plan, which provides an extra funding of 25 M Euro for the year 2008 3
  4. 4. Our criteria of success for “Good Governance” Hamburg stands for well-balanced centralized / decentralized decision-making The Hamburg concept considers ecological efforts as a transversal task, and turns it into job generation in engineering and manufacturing businesses Energy savings need feasable incentives (e.g., the 50/50-program: schools reducing their energy consumption keep 50% of the monetary savings) The Hamburg approach is a two-folded strategy of subsidies and regulation. It provides a substantial project funding to stimulate the market, while at the same time the Hamburg state government establishes specific codes (e.g., green building standards) 4
  5. 5. A significant challenge for a comprehensive metropolitan strategy is… █ Mobility 5
  6. 6. A significant challenge for a comprehensive metropolitan strategy is… █ Advanced Urban Planning 6
  7. 7. Significant challenges for a comprehensive metropolitan strategy are… █ clean energy █ adaptation and mitigation efforts to combat climate change 7
  8. 8. Mobility The major tasks are to … develop public transport through an integrated concept for the bus- and metro-system: common schedule - common tariff- common ticketing extend the regional approach for the overall traffic management plan speed up the implementation of advanced engine technologies establish green ICT in traffic management systems 8
  9. 9. The Hamburg Transport Association – facts & figures Bus/Ferry Rail Total Routes/lines 655 27 682 Stops/stations 9.396 281 9.677 Network length (km) 12.241 881 13.122 Vehicles 1.920 1.636 3.556 Passenger kilometres (m) 1.431 3.935 5.367 Passengers on lines/routes (m) 373 469 842 HVV total passengers (m) 609 9
  10. 10. The Hamburg Transport Association – Energy saving activities Power consumption of the Metro 1995 2006 Difference Automatic driving System recommendations for energy- efficient train operation Million car-km p.a. 58,37 74,54 27,7 % Return of braking energy into the electricity network Total power consumption [million kWh] 97,68 103,97 6,4 % Energy storage systems New lightweight construction Specific consumption 1,67 1,39 -16,8 % vehicle concept [kWh/car-km] 10
  11. 11. Best Practice in smart transportation: Zero Emission Public Transport - The Hamburg fuel cell concept Fuel-cell powered hydrogen buses are 100% environmentally compatible and operate at low noise emission rates HOCHBAHN operates nine fuel cell powered buses in the regular daily inner-city traffic thus constituting the largest hydrogen powered bus fleet in the world 11
  12. 12. Advanced Urban Planning The major tasks are to … establish criteria for sustainable planning in development plans and building permits create urbanity and urban structure with a inspiring mix of public spaces, new districts with residential and office usage, places of consumption, institutions and networks, cultural and entertainment facilities and a dense grid of walkways and cyclepaths extend spatial conversion (brown fields – harbour, railway, industrial, etc.) 12
  13. 13. HafenCity Hamburg: Ecological Sustainability Strategies in a Large-Scale Urban Development Project 13
  14. 14. Best Practice in smart growth and advanced urban planning The Hamburg HafenCity Project 14
  15. 15. residential buildings <60 kWh/a m² or <40 kWh/a m² commercial buildings <190 kWh/a m² or <100 kWh/a m² Best Practice in advanced urban planning HafenCity Eco Label Categories Stimulation of competition and market processes by awarding an eco-label and confering an environmental award certification of buildings promotion of energy efficiency as part of the sale of plots 15
  16. 16. Best practice in Waterfront Development (The HafenCity Science Center) 16
  17. 17. Clean Energy Issues The major tasks are to … implement Carbon Capture Storage increase the percentage of renewables in the regional energy mix support zero-emission technologies like fuel cell or hybrid establish mandatory standards on energy efficiency in buildings start or extend Eco Partnerships (“economy meets ecology”) 17
  18. 18. Adaptation and mitigation efforts Main embankment line ! to combat climate change The major tasks are to … launch programs with well defined projects and measures, such as the Hamburg Climate Action Plan (170 projects within 5 years) start capacity building in R&D and applied sciences establish city networks on adaptation issues (e.g., urban flood management) and focus on climate change on a regional scale 18
