District of Future: Making Europe a better place to live and work.
Contributors: Adriana Anguera Jordà, Lucia Gonzalez

The District of Future (DoF) is a project funded by the European Commission that aims to increase energy efficiency in city districts using innovative Information and Communication Technology (ICT) approaches and renewable energy sources, such as biomass boilers and photovoltaic panels.



Moreover, DoF covers the gap of the interrelations between energy consumption and production sites together with socioeconomic aspects. It will help city leaders to achieve quantifiable and significant reduction up to 30 to 40% of energy consumption and CO2 emissions and will improve citizens’ awareness and encourage their involvement.

DoF uses cutter-edge ICT technologies to collect, register, manage, optimise and monitor energy data and bring this to a cloud-based software platform within the environment FIWARE. This platform gathers historical and real-time data from various sources of energy consumption and generation and analyses energy patterns in each district. The platform provides the needed and relevant data for different ICT software applications, such as district energy modelling and simulation tools, forecasting algorithms and energy flow control and optimisation. That allows predicting the energy consumption and production behaviour in each district.

The DoF project has designed a Platform Architecture System which collects the data coming from electrical meters, processes them and optimises them. It is structured in three main layers:
City Facilities: Installation and monitoring of all the electrical meters and network analysers, BMS/SCADA/PLC systems, thermal meters and weather stations.

DoF BDAC Service: Big Data Aggregation & Collection gathers all the heterogeneous data sources using different communication protocols.
DoF Services Cloud: Initial data storage based on FIWARE for DoF data and the place where DoF Optimization and Simulation Services will run processing the data.

The objectives of the project are:
1. Develop a cloud-based Open Framework for Energy Optimisation with open interfaces.
2. Analyse and model the districts’ energy systems.
3. Develop the tools and algorithms for optimising the districts’ energy efficiency.
4. Develop new business models leveraging new energy information.
5. Validate the Open Energy Framework for Optimisation in three case areas.

6. Develop and evaluate the Key Performance Indicators established by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to measure and prove that the framework helps to reduce the energy consumption by 40%.
7. Ensure the security and privacy of the proposed solution.

This project contributes to combine different forms of energy distribution and to demonstrate the solution’s scalability. 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, 20% of energy from renewable sources, 20% increase of energy efficiency, 20% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in comparison with 1990. Currently, three European cities participate as demonstrators: Corby (UK), Orléans (France) and Sabadell (Spain).
The overall aim is to leverage the data and knowledge to optimise energy usage and generation, resulting in an energy system operating as efficiently and sustainably as possible – a truly Smart City.
