Within the EU Lighthouse Project "Smarter Together", the City of Vienna has been working during the last three years together with the Cities of Munich and Lyon following a P2P learning process to implement a set of integrated smart solutions with focus on holistic buildings refurbishment for low energy districts, onsite renewable energy supply (RES), e-mobility solutions and ICTs. This endeavour aims to support the city vision in transforming Vienna towards sustainable, resilient and liveable city along the ongoing urban transformation and energy transition. For several demo site projects an integrated monitoring concept has been established and tested within a co-creation process encompassing city key stakeholders and various actors from research institutions, industry and building contractors. The developed concept comprises the whole automated process of sensor-based data collection, transfer to and storage on the city´s Data Management Platform (DMP) and the subsequent processing, visualization and generation of related key performance indicators (KPIs). The KPI-based monitoring process seeks to track and monitor the impacts of the implemented solutions for the city demo sites beside their potential contribution to achieving city´s sustainable development targets following an intracity rollout phase and a future replication plan in selected follower cities. The established process highlights the importance of intensive communication among all stakeholders. The generated KPIs for the refurbished buildings demonstrates the importance of establishing a co-creation process gathering buildings owners, construction companies, city´s governance, research institutions and IT utilities responsible for developing and maintaining Vienna´s DMP and the following provision of smart services to third parties. The KPI-based monitoring shows that for the use cases of building refurbishment (comprising 65060 m2 of social housing and 3800 m2 public building) the achieved energy saving by building efficiency measures will reach annually about 4760 MWh. The fossil fuel saving through substitution effect by onsite renewable energy generations (PV, solar thermal, geothermal heat pumps) will reach about 451 MWh. The resulting CO2 reduction by building energy saving and RES will reach about 1423 tCO2 annually. The results underline the importance of the implemented smart solutions in achieving Vienna Energy Framework Strategy pursuing a clear decarbonization path and thus supporting its transformation vision towards inclusive, sustainable and liveable city. The deployment of the successfully implemented and monitored solutions is ongoing. Based on the lessons-learned and the gained best-practices, it is expected that the implementation of an appropriate replication plan will enable by the year 2030 that significant part of the existing old social buildings in Vienna will be refurbished and monitored following the integrated monitoring concept established within Smarter Together project.
