Semantic Tools for Carbon Reduction in Urban Planning (SEMANCO), is a major European research programme which aims to reduce CO2 emissions in the Built Environment by exploiting ICT and the application of semantic energy data modelling.
The project’s purpose is to provide semantic tools to the different stakeholders involved in urban planning and to assist them to make informed decisions about how to reduce CO2 emissions in cities. SEMANCO will carry out requirements analysis in three case studies, in Newcastle, Denmark and Spain. It will develop quantifiable strategies to significantly reduce CO2 emissions through ICT. The SEMANCO research project is co-funded by the FP7 "ICT systems for Energy Efficiency" programme of the European Union. Led by Fundacio Privada Universitat I Tecnologia in Spain, the consortium includes nine partner organisations (universities, community organisations, an IT developer and an environmental consultant) from Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK. Project Duration: 3 years Project Start: September 2011Academic Lead: Dr Tracey CrosbieFunding: €2,732,998This project is funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7-ICT-2011 under grant agreement 287534.
