YEP Network Meeting

Date / Time

Mar 21, 2019 (12:00 PM) - (06:00 PM)


Aspern Urban Lakeside - Smart City Vienna


The next YEP network meeting will take place on 21st March, 2019 in Aspern Urban Lakeside Aspern – Smart City Vienna.

The Urban Lakeside Aspern is one of the largest urban development projects in Europe. The planning area, still undeveloped in many places, is a perfect place to test clever ideas, concepts and technologies in line with the Smart City Vienna framework strategy. The Urban Lakeside will be developed in several stages until 2028 and offers plenty of space for future-oriented projects.

The research project Aspern Smart City Research was awarded as the best energy research project in 2016. At the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, it won against more than 250 projects from 45 countries.

For three years now, the Aspern Smart City Research team has been researching energy efficiency using real data from buildings used in different ways. The aim of the research work is to optimize both urban energy generation and energy consumption in urban areas. The findings of Aspern Smart City Research will ultimately be applicable to entire cities.
