CIVIS Project Kick-Off Meeting in Brussels

Ecologic Institute

Today, a kick off meeting in Brussels launched the CIVIS project. This project is led by the University of Trento in collaboration with the Enel Foundation and is co-funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme. CIVIS is a three-year long project focused on the development of an integrated ICT platform and decision support system (DSS) to reduce CO2 and increase energy savings through close collaboration between prosumers and other energy stakeholders. The project aims to acheive three primary objectives: enabling a more efficient, sustainable and CO2-aware energy system in cities, examining energy related social innovation impacts and developing new ICT enabled business models. The project will run until the end of September 2016.
