Case study: Smart Building Challenge
Building a better, cleaner and healthier future for residents and visitors alike, is a key success factor for Sunderland City Council as it strives to grow a dynamic, vibrant and healthy smart city.
And becoming carbon neutral – both as a council and as a city – is a key part of this growth as we recognise and commit to global sustainability objectives and ambitious targets set out in our city-wide Low Carbon Framework and in Sunderland City Council’s Low Carbon Action Plan.
As we make progress towards this goal, we know that it requires a strong partnership approach to pool expertise, resources and delivery. One particular key partnership has seen the council and Digital Catapult contract with Nomad Energy Solutions (Nomad) for a pilot project, based on council-owned office buildings, with the aim of building a roadmap to enable council buildings to become net zero by 2030.
