More than 200 decarbonisation solutions for cities


This digital platform contains a range of decarbonisation solutions to promote urban transformation, through energy, buildings, mobility, water and waste management. Users are guided through a process to identify and prioritize the solutions that best meet their specific needs. This database of solutions includes political, business and financial models that help reduce emissions and create local value, such as green jobs and better air quality.

The beta brings together over 200 real-life case studies and solutions from over 110 cities around the world. Access to the Solutions Toolbox is open to all, in particular, it is aimed at city leaders, leaders of national governments and businesses. Users can browse the database and search for solutions based on attributes or to address their most pressing local challenges.

“As this tool and the solutions it contains show, the technology to decarbonize our cities exists today. When it comes to deployment, we need to think beyond just public infrastructure and towards all buildings, especially our existing building stock. Renovation programs play an important role in the transition to net zero cities “, noted Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO of Schneider Electric.

“Clean electrification paves the way for the decarbonisation of the economy while promoting sustainable urban transformation, and, with today’s technologies and know-how, we have the tools to succeed and a unique opportunity to make the difference. noted Francesco Starace, CEO and Managing Director of the Enel Group. “The Solutions Toolkit is an excellent tool for business and policy makers as it provides integrated energy solutions to contribute to a more prosperous and resilient society. As a global leader in the electricity industry, Enel constantly works with global partners to help drive large-scale actions towards a more sustainable and inclusive future. “

Included in the Solutions Toolbox, users will find Enel’s integrated solutions aimed at delivering low-carbon, sustainable and resilient urban ecosystems in cities around the world. With a focus on smart energy infrastructure, Enel’s Open Meter is the new generation of smart meters reflecting the most recent market and technology developments in the field of advanced metering and remote management of power grids. . In Italy On its own, where the technology will reach over 35 million customers by 2025, this second generation smart meter enables the collection of over 7 trillion data points per year, including near real-time usage and electrical parameters to enable analysis of big data for the grid. It is a digital tool that improves customers’ knowledge and understanding of their electricity consumption habits and promotes more efficient and sustainable consumption models. In addition, it enables consumers to take a proactive role in the monitoring and control of devices such as solar roofs, home automation and electric mobility, thereby promoting the diffusion of new advanced energy services. As part of the Group’s circular economy approach, the Open Meter is designed and manufactured from regenerated plastics, emitting 6% less CO2 and producing 122g less waste for each meter opened compared to a conventional meter.

Several solutions successfully implemented by Schneider Electric are also included in the platform. They highlight, in particular, how energy efficiency can generate energy and material savings, which can be reinvested in the city’s infrastructure and community projects, including modernization of infrastructure and modernization of buildings. municipal buildings with HVAC systems and intelligent automation controls. For example, in Holland, Michigan in United States, city leaders have partnered with Schneider to incorporate energy goals into their energy savings master plan, in order to address infrastructure renovations while meeting sustainability goals, thereby helping all residents of the city. city ​​to reduce their energy consumption by 30 to 50%.

The Toolbox is the third deliverable of the “Net Zero Carbon Cities” program; a WEF initiative aimed at aligning and scaling up the efforts of businesses, cities and governments at the national level to deliver sustainable, resilient and equitable urban ecosystems. The program is co-chaired by Mr. Jean Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Schneider Electric, and M. Francesco Starace, CEO and Managing Director of the Enel Group.

Last week, the initiative also released a backgrounder on Urban transformation: integrated energy solutions showing how the built environment and mobility can serve as a foundation to launch urban transformation and decarbonization around the world.
