Aspern, “Vienna’s Urban Lakeside”, is not only one of the largest urban development projects in Europe but also home to one of Austria’s largest smart city projects: “Smart Cities Demo Aspern (SCDA)”. This project also investigates different types of energy behaviour. Energy use and density are highest in cities. Vienna’s Aspern development aims to be a model of high-efficiency and low-impact cities of tomorrow. An education campus, a student residence, and a housing complex will become a testbed for energy-efficient cities.

The flagship project “SC Demo Aspern” intends a large-scale implementation of a system optimizing approach between buildings, power grids, users and comprehensive ICT solutions. This innovative combination is integrated into testbeds in the development area aspern Vienna’s Urban Lakeside consisting of three construction sites (residential building blocks, student’s dormitory, kindergarden and school building). Findings from the demonstration are utilized to improve operation and control strategies of buildings and power grids as well as to innovate the interaction with users for optimal usage of energy and CO2 reductions.
