Sustainable energy Positive & zero cARbon CommunitieS (SPARCS) supports European cities in transforming into Sustainable energy Positive & zero cARbon CommunitieS by creating citizen-centric ecosystems that are equipped to bring about meaningful change.
The current deliverable is part of task 5.3 (Fellow City Replication Strategy), aimed at providing an evidence-based and in-depth understanding for key systems in the SPARCS Fellow Cities – the City of Kladno specifically, as basis for the development of long-term visions, smart city strategies and of locally adapted interventions regarding positive energy blocks.
The Implementation plan provides a baseline profile of the City of Kladno and several project which are partially already implemented or project outlines, that are based on interventions in Lighthouse Cities and the packaged solutions. The baseline profile highlights quantifiable sustainability performance of the city, its strengths and weaknesses around carbon transformation.
The methodology followed is the Fraunhofer Morgenstadt (FHG) assessment framework and more specifically its City Lab Methodology for sustainable urban development, basedon the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the city of Kladno.
The profile of the city is outlined. The vision of Kladno is expressed. All accompanied by key strategic documents of the city (SECAP – Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan;SUMP – Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, SDS – Sustainable Development Strategy) which were designed in early stage of the SPARCS - thus an overall strategic framework and projects pipeline is in the place.
Last, but not least, the on-site assessment was implemented, during which, a total of 30 project ideas were discussed, inspired by the implementations in the Lighthouse cities in SPARCS. Most of them were the result of interviews with representatives from several city departments including political representatives. Following debate had pointed to the couple of projects for further detailed elaboration under the FHG methodological framework – (1) Renewables exploitation within the public infrastructure; (2) Supporting and promoting of the clean individual mobility in the city; (3) Positive Energy District (PED) in the area of Sletiště (sports area). The rest of the projects are developed in parallel, some of them are - also thanks to the SPARCS - already under realization (energy management; smart city platform Invipo, eBikes system), or are at the final stage of the preparation (energy savings within the winter stadium, ISO management implementation, EPC energy savings in 23 buildings etc.).
This deliverable is submitted, but it is pending official approval.
