Project description The Marie-Curie Research Training Network (RTN) CITYNET generally aims to develop tools to improve the energy management of large scale urban projects. The common scope of the network research activities is to establish an innovative internet based online tool for planning, managing and operating urban quarters with low energy consumption and high renewable energy fraction in order to reduce up to 30% of state of the art quarters CO2-emissions. A major research focus of the network will be the analysis, optimization, standardization and benchmarking of existing and planned buildings and energy efficient power plants (demand and supply side) of three urban planning sites and the implementation of the results into an intelligent energy management system. This system will provide internet online monitoring, simulation and visualization using Geographical Information System (GIS) software as the front end. CITYNET will consist of eight university research groups from six different European member countries and Turkey as an associated candidate-country and additionally involves seven commercial enterprises as well as community authorities as hosts for visits. The research will be carried out in civil, mechanical and environmental engineering as well as architecture, building physics, social science, computer science and economy. Within the network activities, ten PhDpositions will be offered.
