Our objectives

The UP-RES (Urban Planners with Renewable Energy Skills) project's main focus was on organizing training for urban and regional planners. Our main target group were European planning professionals working in national, regional and municipal authorities but also in private consultation companies.

During the project we organized both short and long courses in the five partner countries and were able to reach nearly 1200 planners in the trainings. The training were be country specific due to differences between countries. More information on the training approaches, methodologies and recommendations can be found on materials pages.

In addition to the trainings, the partners collected information of 30 best practice cases in which renewable energy solutions had been integrated with urban planning. In addition to these best practices, we also modified some existing tools for urban planners and analysed planning guidelines.

In order to have a higher impact, the training concepts, tools and best practices have been disseminated and communicated through various European institutions, such as universities, the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP), European associations of heating and cooling utilities and research institutes (Euroheat&Power ) and the International Federation of Housing and Planning (IFHP).
