Project description The aim of the project led by Politechnico die Torino is to develop a strategy for the use of fallow land and vacant buildings in Turin. From an energy point of view, is it more sensible to modernise such buildings or to replace them with energy-efficient new buildings? Can inner-city areas be used for decentralised energy supply? Urban simulations are to be used in the project to answer such questions. To this end, a comparative study will first be prepared on the basis of two case studies. The method was developed by Prof. Mutani at the Politecnico Turin. The case studies are based on geoinformation systems and the urban simulation environment SimStadt. SimStadt was developed at the HFT Stuttgart in a project funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. Within the framework of the project there is also the possibility of an exchange of students. Translated with
