Customers / Partners: Helen and City of Helsinki
Minimising of energy costs and CO2 emissions of broad city and
district level energy systems.
VTT developed a planning tool for energy experts and investors to find out the best combination of broad cities and districts energy systems: CITYOPT analyses cost and system information, enabling hence the optimisation of energy system and minimization of energy costs and CO2 emissions.
CITYOPT Planning tool has been used in Kalasatama and Östersundom districts.
CITYOPT Planning tool produced and optimal design in the demonstration cases: 15% cost savings and 30% CO2 emission reductions.
