Innovation and Networks Executive Agency

Triangulum

INEA ceased operations on 31 March 2021. The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) was established on 1 April 2021 to take over its legacy portfolio as well as additional EU funding programmes.
Triangulum: The Three Point Project / Demonstrate. Disseminate. Replicate.

The cities of Manchester, Stavanger and Eindhoven are deploying smart city solutions which integrate energy, mobility and information & communication technologies (ICT) in city districts. The goal is to reduce energy use and carbon emissions, enhance quality of life and stimulate economic development.

The project will demonstrate that this model, integrating existing technologies in the field of energy, transport and ICT, can be replicated throughout Europe.

Within the framework of the project, a district in each city has been selected. Each district will apply different technological solutions that will decrease the use of energy, reduce carbon emissions, and improve air quality in cities.

The technologies used vary from local renewable power generation and energy storage, geothermal pumps or storage batteries integrated in the electricity grid, to use of electric mobility (e-cars and e-bikes) as well as refurbishment over 100,000 m² of housing.
