Tender challenges / Athens
Athens has focused its environmental policies over the recent years on climate change mitigation, using the indicator of quality of urban life as a crucial target. Facilitating cultural change in society is perceived as a fundamental need to understand, support, and fulfil the city’s journey for a better and healthier environment. In particular, Athens aims at reducing the level of stationary energy consumption in public buildings and to this purpose is in the process of creating the first energy community dealing with the specificities of localism (neighbourhood level) and engaging all types of citizens in the area (including visitors, workers, students, parents, seniors, low socioeconomic status groups etc.).
Athens is looking for a socio-technical systems based on smart combinations of software and hardware (such as IoT sensors) that enable the collection, monitoring and management of energy consumption data in public buildings and can be easily operated by both domain experts and non-experts (such as lay people as per the above list).
