Our methodology aims at demonstrating the benefits of the use of dedicated urban climate information in local decision-making.
Six sectoral service cases are being fully elaborated and demonstrated in the first phase of the project, in a joint effort involving end-users and service providers as project partners. These service demonstration cases are being implemented in Barcelona, Bern, Antwerp, Prague/Ostrava/Hodonín, Vienna, and Rome in the domains of health, building energy, emergency planning, urban planning, active mobility and cultural heritage. Each of the cases will be subject to a detailed service evaluation and socio-economic impact analysis, quantifying the benefits of using urban climate information.
The second half of the project will focus on upscaling and market replication, aiming towards a doubling of the number of demonstration cases. Through a business development strategy, supported by marketing activities, we ultimately aim at involving new non-financed end-users and business intermediaries to demonstrate the long-term market viability of the service.
