The goal and purpose of the project ist to develop and realize a holistic and integrated Smart City Concept in a district of Villach. In two test areas in Villach a series of co-ordinated activities are implemented. The essential part of the concept is the upgrad of the power grid into a "smart grid". Additionally the energy users should be motivated and supported in reducing and optimizing their energy consumption. New finacing and business models for decentralised power plants should encourage privat investors and citiziens to invest in local renewable energy.

This project is sponsored by the climate and energy fond (Klima- und Energiefonds) and realized as part of the program "SMART ENERGY DEMO - FIT for SET".
