DoF project is in line with the conference topics. District of Future project is an European Project, funded by the European Commission, that aims to increase energy efficiency in city districts using innovative Information and Communication Technology approaches and renewable energy sources. The objective of the project is to leverage the data and knowledge to optimize energy usage and generation, resulting in an energy system operating as efficienctlly and sustainably as possible. By reapplying the DoF approach in other European districts the project will make a sustainable contribution to the EC’s 2020 Energy and Climate Change objectives.
