Specific Project Targets: SmartCity Cologne is a collaborative project of companies, private persons, organizations and authorities that aims to adapt our city to the challenges raised by climate change. Our areas of focus include sustainable mobility, energy efficiency of buildings and low-emission heating facilities and ensuring an integrated infrastructure as the city expands. In this context, we trail technologies and services which are intended to help our city reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase the share of renewable energy and become more energy efficient.

GrowSmarter brings together cities and industry to integrate and demonstrate ‘12 smart city solutions’ in energy, infrastructure and transport, to provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication. As a "Lighthouse City" of the project, Cologne has rolled out those solutions in Mülheim, a vibrant area in the North-East of the city which is currently undergoing a process of regeneration.
We Offer: Innovative and integrative concepts in the fields of sustainable mobility, energy efficiency of buildings and low-emission heating facilites.
We Search: Insights and concepts that may help us expand our efforts in decarbonization and climate control.

Message: In Cologne we have acknowledged that we need to tackle the effects and challenges of climate change. Accordingly, we adopted approaches that help us to reduce our carbon footprint. These measures range from improving our cycling infrastructure to energy-related renovation and modernisation of older buildings.
