Urban Energy and Mobility System (URBEM)

What should the city of the future look like? How can a city that is sustainable and liveable tomorrow be planned today?

URBEM helps answer these questions from an economic, technological, social and ecological perspective.

With Vienna as an example, a prototype of a virtual city was developed - and validated with real data. What arose was an IT environment in which - within the framework of data protection requirements - variations of a city of the future can be analysed more completely in scenarios.

For the first time ever, changes in social structure, building stocks and mobility options as well as effects on infrastructure and energy supply are able to be considered and visualised consistently. The environment combines knowledge from ten different scientific models developed at the TU Wien and incorporates the extensive practical knowledge of Wiener Stadtwerke.

The central result is the prototype of an interdisciplinary decision-supporting tool which can be used for detailed planning as well as higher-level urban planning scenarios.

The results of URBEM are relevant from a scientific view as well as from the view of an enterprise - urban planners, infrastructure Operators and developers, energy suppliers, builders, and representatives from various scientific disciplines benefit from holistic approaches.
The results report will be available in English as well in a short time.
