The Programme on Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods (PED) has the ambition to develop pathways towards implementation of 100 Positive Energy Districts in urban neighbourhoods across Europe by 2025. This is seen as an important contribution to current policies on achieving the goals of reducing Europe’s carbon footprint, managing the energy transition and to cities ambitions towards sustainable urban development. Solid understanding and consideration of cities’ experiences and strategies serves as the base of developing the programme. This is why the PED Programme aims at a strong involvement of cities, R&I institutions, industry and citizens in the programme implementation.
The PED Programme Cities Workshop therefore invites cities to develop this important topic of urban transition together and lay basis for further cooperation. The workshop will be combined with a site visit to the brownfield urban development of former Vienna northwest railway station, including discussions with representatives of the City of Vienna.
