Project description

Urban industrial regions are hot spots for resource consumption and emissions. The challenge for planners and decision-makers with regard to the development of industrial cities is an integrative integration of industrial companies with the surrounding city quarters.

In the Smart Cities project Smart Urban Industry, cross-system approaches were developed for the intelligent integration of industrial companies based in Weiz into the urban energy system.

The following results are available:

  • Methodology for the identification of potential areas for the development of industrial and commercial locations
  • Comprehensive knowledge of the mobility behavior of employees in the city of Weiz
  • Cross-system measures for integrative networking of industry with the "system city" in the following subject areas:
  • Modular building
  • Cooling with district heating
  • Area sharing "GreenTrafficArea"
  • Smart Urban Industry Action Plan Weiz 2030
