Testimonial: Why Sant Cugat used OPTIMUS, the package of web-based consulting tools for energy managers and energy consultancies, in order to make cities more energy efficient and sustainable in the field of optimisation of energy use in the city’s buildings
As an area attracting high-tech companies, Sant Cugat, located in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, would like to boost this profile further by encouraging development of new business models which work as part of a sustainable city-wide eco-system. On a city level, the benefits of project are considered to have contributed to a more efficient integrated multi-modal city management, as well as improving understanding of energy use and needs in the city.
