This call on Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods (PEDs) is the second call of the PED Programme facilitated by the JPI Urban Europe, aiming at supporting the large-scale implementation of at least 100 PEDs by 2025. It succeeds the PED Pilot Call and will find its continuation in the European partnership “Driving Urban Transitions to a Sustainable Future (DUT)”.

Aim of the call

As an integral part of comprehensive sustainable urbanisation strategies, establishing Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods shifts the focus from the individual positive energy building towards neighbourhoods and thus a new level of impact on sustainable urban development and the energy transition process. With this call, JPI Urban Europe aims to continue creating a transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral community working in the field of the energy transition in the urban context, aiming for high stakeholder involvement, collaboration and co-production of knowledge.

Participating countries: Austria, Brussels Capital Region, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Romania, Sweden, Turkey 

In the main objectives of the call topic 1, “development of feasible implementation strategies for Positive Energy Districts in existing, potentially historical, urban neighbourhoods” dovetails well to cultural heritage research.
