Integrated city systems for increased efficiency - Tampere, Finland
Tampere aims to become carbon neutral by 2050 by investing in cogeneration, high efficiency standards in building and integrated data for transport.

Tampere is expanding Finland’s biggest wood-pellet district heating plant by building an additional one to run on household fuel in 2016. Thanks to district heating, the total CO2 emissions have decreased by 15% since 1990.

Tampere is offering its citizens the tools to reduce energy consumption by installing smart meters and by giving economic incentives for new construction with ambitious energy standards exceeding building regulations. The city additionally provides free energy advice and a web tool for planning eco-efficient refurbishment.

In the transport sector, the ITS factory allows everyone to take advantage of Tampere’s smart and integrated infrastructure to make the city cleaner and more liveable.

For more information on Tampere’s actions to become carbon neutral though system integration, see the Covenant of Mayors Case Study.
