D5.7 Implementation Plan Lviv
The city of Lviv is one of the first in Ukraine which has initiated the development of the concept of climate neutrality in the urban system. Since 2019 SPARCS has been an accelerator for achieving climate neutrality targets and designing innovative solutions forcreating energy-positive districts in the city.
Today, at the strategic level, Lviv’s transformation to climate neutrality in 2050 has been shaped by the following strategies:
– Integrated concept of development: Lviv 2030;
– Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan;
– Green City Action Plan;
– Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.
In the city there is a constant process of strategic planning and management to fulfil the medium-term goals of the city and ensure climate neutrality as a long-term objective. The role of SPARCS here is to structure and strengthen transformational methods with new approaches in the field of strategic management, to involve and strengthen the role of residents and other stakeholders in the development of policies, designing management and financial models for achieving future goals. The key task for attaining climate neutrality in Lviv lies in achieving the city’s energy independence. The SPARCS project generates and adapts innovative smart solutions for the development of energy-positive districts for Lviv. Thus, ensuring the innovative development of the three pillars of energy positive districts: efficient energy consumption, renewable energy supply and energy efficient mobility.
The present Implementation Plan Lviv reveals the factors affecting the transformation of the city into a climate neutral city. Furthermore, it provides an understanding of key projects that, in the short term should create conditions for the advancement of energypositive areas and the promotion of the revolution of Lviv into a climate neutral city.
