Project description As cities across the globe confront rapid change, they face common metabolic challenges to provide Food Water and Energy (FWE) supplies. IN-SOURCE will develop a shared urban data and modeling framework to help decision makers (such as governments, utilities, developers, investors) identify, quantify and visualize FWE systems and their interrelations for urban strategic planning and FWE infrastructure investments. IN-SOURCE is based on three case studies in Ludwigsburg (Germany), New York (US) and Vienna (Austria), and will examine scenarios for an integrated CO2-neutral and sustainable infrastructure as well as the scalability and transferability of prototype solutions to other cities.
