Ubiwhere will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and will help six cities and regions in Europe to do it as well. PCP PROJECT, where Ubiwhere is playing an active role, aims to cut down the CO2 emissions in Amsterdam (Netherlands), Copenhagen (Denmark), Helsinki (Finland), Île–de–France – Paris Region (France), Stavanger (Norway) and Tallinn (Estonia).
Using AI to analyze travel patterns to devise more efficient routes and timetables, contributing to a much lower environmental footprint. Optimizing the use of electric vehicle charging locations by giving AI-based recommendations. An AI tool to dramatically reduce the time to assess, plan and promote investments for energy flexibility and efficiency in buildings. Maximizing the local renewable electricity utilization through demand-side management, using buildings as distributed thermal energy storage. These are just four of the 41 proposed solutions that AI4CITIES BUYERS GROUP has selected to continue to the Solution Design Phase of the PCP PROJECT. In this phase of the project, the 41 selected suppliers will receive funding – each contractor will receive a maximum of 40,000 euros – to further develop their AI-based solutions, in accordance with the input provided by The Buyers Group. They have three months to do so, following which the Buyers Group will evaluate which of these suppliers will continue to Phase 2, the prototyping phase of the PCP.
In the Mobility Lot, the solutions vary from an optimization tool to address eco-efficient last-mile delivery, to real-time air quality measurements, and a cycling management tool to make cycling safer and more attractive. “We hope that the solutions under development will address and eventually solve several problem areas such as underutilized data sources, poor real-time traffic analysis, lack of truly multimodal mobility platforms and as a result reduce CO2 levels in city hotspots“, explained Mart Brauer project manager for the City of Tallinn. In the Energy Lot, The Buyers Group has selected solutions varying from an AI collaboration platform empowering the construction industry to remove barriers for circular activities, to a smart battery system designed for residential, public, and commercial buildings to store electricity using upcycled electric batteries, and a smart demand forecasting tool for electricity utilities/aggregators.
The selected suppliers do not just come from the nations represented by the project cities, but also from Belgium, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. Please find below a full list of the companies selected in both lots.
