On 16 May at 11:30 AM, Smarter Together hosted a webinar on smart lamp posts and e-governance in Munich.

Within the Munich part of Smarter Together an important result is the installation of urban labs using lampposts as the physical backbone for IoT based solutions. These lampposts are enabling the collection of local information by sensor systems to offer smart local services, improve planning processes and prediction. Strongly connected are the topics of a Smart Data Platform and mobile Services using the Munich Smart City App. 

The webinar gives an overview to the installation of the urban labs in the project area and the built infrastructure. A more details view on the planning, requirements, conception, regulations and installation is given. Additional topics like the innovation tender process (Open Call), community work and discussions, sensor based solution currently installed; interaction with smart data platform and the mobile service platform will be discussed in an overview and illustrated with a use case scenario.

On 17 May, Smarter Together hosted a webinar on the topic of energy efficient private housing retrofit, and will be discussing the consulting activity and owners engagement that it is undergoing as part of its projects.

Several SCC projects are dealing with private residential buildings retrofit. Unlike public buildings, where funding and technical activities are generally assured by the municipalities or other institutions, the case for the private owned and multifamily buildings presents many challenges before the construction work starts. This last case comprehends frequently a difficult and uninformed decision-making process involving each flat owner to  invest its own money.

Munich decided to close this information gap and start providing technical advices to private residential building flat owners, by offering Consultancy activities.

This has proven to bring countless benefits to:

Home owners: 

  • Get information and rise individual awareness of owners towards the positive effects of refurbishment (energy and cost savings, healthy and comfortable indoor environment, sustainable increase in value);
  • Support with technical and financing expertise due to the planning and implementing of the refurbishment works to achieve higher sufficient quality;
  • Possibility of independent moderation of the decision process in case of home owners associations the.

Local/municipal strategy and policy makers:

  • Information and awareness of the local situation and local market and needs and barriers of private owners
  • Gathering Knowledge to design of customized support service f.e. offers for funded consultancy and development of suitable local fund schemes
  • To be able to achieve local environment agenda and given CO2 saving goals

Smarter Together Webinar on "Collective Self-Consumption of PV Systems

Publish date

On November 2016, the European Commission proposed to recast the EU directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources in order to allow renewable self-consumers living in the same multi-apartment block to jointly engage in self-consumption as if they were an individual renewable self-consumer.

On November 2016, the European Commission proposed to recast the EU directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources in order to allow renewable self-consumers living in the same multi-apartment block to jointly engage in self-consumption as if they were an individual renewable self-consumer. 

Known as "Electricity for renters" (Mieterstrom) in Germany or "Collective self-consumption" in France, many different initiatives in Europe strive to implement this new business model of PV systems that seems to be well suited for urban areas with multi apartment blocks. 

This webinar will present challenges faced for the development of a 170 kWp PV system used for collective self-consumption in the Lyon-Confluence area in France on a 12.000m2 urban block under construction within Smarter Together, an EC funded project.
