The Networking intelligent Cities for Energy efficiency (NiCE) project aimed to promote and advance implementation of the commitments of the Green Digital Charter (GDC) currently signed by more than 40 cities with a view to use ICT as an enabler to significantly reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Charter Framework and Tools – developing a common implementation framework, reporting tools, and information resources for classifying, measuring, reporting and supporting city actions in the context of the Green Digital Charter.
City Support and Action – offering a portfolio of support activities to cities through a series of targeted exchange and learning activities (e.g. training sessions and study visits) with experts and other signatory cities with a view to triggering implementation of the Green Digital Charter.
Outreach and Engagement – organising networking and visibility events to increase the number of Charter signatories and showcase cooperation opportunities with key policy and practices communities, including a special focus on engaging with Chinese cities currently developing similar initiatives.
The project was funded under the ICT strand of the 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7).
