Project number: TD03000255
Project title: The tools for reducing the personal-transport-related energy consumption of smart cities
Programme: TAČR OMEGA
Project coordinator: FES CZU
Project leader: prof. Ing. arch. Karel Maier, CSc.
Project schedule: 2016-2017
Total project budget of FES CZU: 2847,6 ths. CZK (of which the grants 2278,08 ths. CZK)
The goal of the project is to develop tools for decision making support in town and country planning with the aim of decreasing the personal transport energy consumption related to the spatial arrangement of settlement. The tools will enable evaluation of alternative spatial development scenarios. The results will enable decreasing energy intensity of personal transportation by the means of policy documents of the districts. These tools will supplement other tools for decreasing transport energy consumption, which are focused mostly on increasing energy efficiency of vehicles and support of environmentally-friendly means of transport (see the SETIS project as an example).
