Project description POLYCITY (Energy networks in sustainable cities), which is coordinated by, is an EU-project that is supported with about 8 million Euro. This project encompasses three large urban development areas in Turin (Italy), Ostfildern (near Stuttgart, Germany) and Cerdanyola del Vallès (near Barcelona, Spain). In these cities exemplary sustainable residential and commercial districts are to be completed by 2010. The goals of the project are to increase the portion of the supply energy that stems from renewable sources (biomass, geothermal, PV), optimize the energy efficiency of the buildings, the cogeneration, solar cooling and innovative communal energy management systems in order to optimize the supply and consumption. Large city planning areas were selected so as to create the largest impact possible: the Arquata district in Turin encompasses 87,000 m², the project in Ostfildern, 178,000 m², and in Cerdanyola more than 2 million square meters of residential and industrial areas as well as a science park are being built.
