Grow Smarter

GrowSmarter shows trend-setting climate protection measures. After the implementation phase and the first results of the evaluation, the City of Cologne is very convinced of the implemented measures in the project area.
Some of these measures will now be rolled out throughout the entire city of Cologne, such as the mobility stations tested in the GrowSmarter project. They include a choice of (E-)CarSharing, (E-)BikeSharing, charging stations and parking spaces, which can be booked in advance.
In parallel, more than 400 new charging points will be built throughout the city. In addition, the energy management for a complete neighbourhood with the new software "Siedlungsmanagement" (virtual power plant) is very successful.

The European Union is promoting sustainable urban development in Cologne's neighbourhood Mülheim. Multi-family apartment buildings in the Stegerwaldsiedlung are extensively renovated, equipped with photovoltaics, district heating and heat pumps. Numerous mobility stations are established in the urban area and consumers can contribute with their own applications to environmental and climate protection.
