EU EYES CARBON NEUTRAL GOAL IN 2030
The EU has a goal - to make one hundred cities carbon neutral by 2030 as part of its Horizon Europe program that will be launched next year, according to Euronews.
Sustainable development of urban areas is a challenge of key importance to keep carbon emissions down.
It requires new, efficient, and user-friendly technologies and services, in particular in the areas of energy, transport and ICT. However, these solutions need integrated approaches, both in terms of research and development of advanced technological solutions, as well as deployment.
Valladolid is one of the 'lighthouse' cities that has been chosen to experiment with innovations and lead the way for other cities to replicate what works.
The new ideas are being implemented within the framework of the EU project Remourban, which brings together various initiatives.
