The Smart City Rheintal project is working on new concepts for intelligent cities and living spaces. The main focus here is on reducing emissions.
You can find current information on the project at: www.smartcityrheintal.at
Four zero emission quarter based on technological and social innovation will be established. They will be interconnected via smart grids and integrated mobility (mobility on demand). The project consortium consists on utilities, real estate companies, IT experts and research institution. Within the project, the illwerke vkw Professorship for Energy Efficiency focuses on improving integration of reneables such as wind and solar power into the power grid using intelligent demand side management.
