The Smart Urban Isle (SUI) project pretends to move forward with the urban energy savings.

The Smart Urban Isle (SUI) project pretends to move forward with the urban energy savings. Based on a three cornerstones procedure, the SUI project aims at a whole new urban planning that allows cities to grow in a sustainable way. Consequently, we develop an innovative new concept for city planning, where cities are arranged and grow through small integrated areas. We will probe Smart Urban Isle as innovative basic energy unit in the Smart City.

What is the goal of the project?

SUI plans to investigate, implement and validate energy neutral 'Smart Urban Isles' (SUI), defined as 'areas around a public building, which make use of the synergies between different (building) functions and of the scale advantages for energy (storage) solutions'. The aim is to locally balance the energy system as much as possible. These areas can consist of 10 – 1000 buildings; the optimal scale will be evaluated, and will depend on different (technological) solutions. We will probe Smart Urban Isle as innovative basic energy unit in the Smart City.

What is the result of the project?

• Transition of energetic systems in Europe to robust systems based on e cient and sustainable use of natural resources

Hi there!
We are a group of students from Lund University (Sweden), studying our Master in Information Systems. In one of our courses, we are doing a research about sustainable/smart cities in Europe and after reading about Amsterdam, the choice of city became easy!

By looking at this project, we see that you would fit very well in an interview about the smart city initiatives in Amsterdam from an entreprenoural point of view. We would be very grateful if you took your time to help us out answering our questions, which will take around 45 min - 1 hour.

If you would like a copy of our report when it is finished, we’ll gladly share it with you!

Please contact me as soon as possible and I will explain more: fredriksson.otto@gmail.com

Best Regards,
