What is a smart sustainable district?

Project Goals and Components
Moabit West

The Smart Sustainable District (SSD) project is a European initiative aimed at implementing integrated and urban solutions within districts. The overarching goal is to create high-quality urban living spaces that are also well equipped to meet the future challenges presented by climate change. The project partners in the Climate-KIC network represent a wide range of experts from the private and public sectors and the academic and research community who are keen to apply their skills to turning existing approaches in individual districts into integrated solutions.

  • Why Moabit?

    Climate-KIC’s decision to select Moabit West as a pilot district for the SSD project was based on the comprehensive catalogue of measures outlined in the 2014 Green Moabit district development strategy (StEK) and also on the fact that there are active networks of citizen and company initiatives in the area. Under the direction of TU Berlin’s CHORA city&energy institute, since mid-2014 the project team has brought on board several local partners from Mitte borough, the business network, the district administration and the urban utilities, and has explored options for implementing integrated district solutions in Moabit West. In February 2016, planning began for potential research and implementation projects in the fields of energy and thermal efficiency, sustainable water management and carbon-neutral mobility. The Smart Citizen Network Board (SCNB) was established as a cooperative steering mechanism in December 2015.
