LESS ENERGY, MORE SOLUTIONS
The district current conditions is only based on the regulation, taking into account that the buildings are new constructions.
The main action within the MAtchUP project will involve the increasing of solar power, the installation of solar thermal collection, the installation of smart controls and led public lighting to reduce the energy consumption and to increase the share of renewable energy then reducing emissions and pollution.
Mobility in Antalya is basically focused on two types of transportation, electric and diesel. In this sense, the most part of the transportation systems are diesel-fuelled, i.e. taxi, school-work services and pick-up buses.
Then, the objective of the municipality is to reduce these numbers with the aim of avoiding CO2 emissions and increasing the sustainable public transport in the city.
CONNECTED CITIES, LIVEABLE LIVES
The Municipality of Antalya, in line with its Digital Agenda, has developed a global ICT-Infrastructure in which many vertical services of the city are integrated.
This Urban Platform of Antalya is in charge of gathering information from these municipal services and to provide information to make city decisions by elaborating a set of key indicators to support this process.
Another objective of the platform is to offer open data to the citizens and municipal managers to support all the necessary information to ease their daily life.
