SINFONIA – Smart Initiative of cities Fully cOmmitted to iNvest In Advanced large-scaled energy solutions

Large scale, integrated and scalable energy solutions for European districts

The SINFONIA project is a five-year initiative to deploy large-scale, integrated and scalable energy solutions in middle-sized European cities. At the heart of the initiative is a unique cooperation between the cities of Bolzano and Innsbruck, working hand in hand to achieve 40 to 50 % primary energy savings and increase the share of renewables by 20 % in two pioneer districts. This will be done through an integrated set of measures combining the retrofitting of more than 100,000 m2 of living surface, optimisation of the electricity grid, and solutions for district heating and cooling.

The SINFONIA project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement 609019.
