the challenge of a connected and integrated neighborhood - Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain
San Sebastian is targeted to develop a new urbanization context allowing them to achieve a more sustainable, efficient, better connected and integrated neighborhood model. In this context, Txomin has become a “city-laboratory” where different initiatives can be tested and implemented, promoted or coordinated from the public or private initiative in collaboration with citizens, city businesses, neighborhood businesses, etc. Energy efficiency, ICTs, Infrastructure and Sustainable mobility-related initiatives are carried out: Building retrofitting、Smart Building and Smart Homes、District Heating system、Sustainable mobility、Connectivity (fiber, 5G testing)、Intelligent lighting、Participatory processes for citizens and businesses.
Around 1500 new homes and 156 consolidated dwellings are beneficiaries of these initiatives, enjoying close relationships with all the actors that are involved in the development of the project. This allows residents to remain the central point of the project, analyzing their needs, wishes and opportunities into particular smart initiatives.
