The main objective of the intervention is the exemplar transformation of two residential building including the shell insulation and the disposal of old existing individual heating systems, with a high performance micro DHS producing energy with high efficiency and RES exploitation through an innovative solar thermal seasonal storage.
The Energy Audit has been completed, as well as the first phase of the plan, which includes:
Executive design of the insulation (EPS graphite)
Design check (“verifica”)
Tendering procedure (new rules, most cost-efficient evaluation)
DH & Solar Plant
The energy audit has been completed, and both the second and third phase of the plan have been finished, which include these major tasks:
- Technical (geolocgical, static, hydrogeological) and administrative analysis (permits).
- Knowledge exchange (storage).
- Static and Dynamic energy simulation.
- Preliminary design with new features but maintaining previous performances.
To achieve the creation of a resilient network, three main objectives have been identified:
Reducing outlages and increasing the quality of service
Increasing the resilience of the grid
Enabling advanced functionalities and new value added services for the citizens and PA
- Completed the analysis of MV lines for Smart Fault Selection and the definition of the materials.
- Purchasing materials for 2 HV/MV and 60 MV/LV substations (70%).
- Started setting two HV/MV substations for Smart Fault Selection (upgrading of the peripheral devices of telecommunication system in HV/MV substations, wiring of the main components of remote control system with optical fiber) and the assessment of the telecommunication solutions.
- Started monitoring the impact (SAIFI and SAIDI).
600 residential apartments/families in the pilot area of Florence will be equipped with Smart Info, with the aim to increase customer awareness enabling Home Energy Efficiency Services and providing user-friendly information, in order to rise customer awareness.
- Analysis of possible solution for interfacing of EMS (Energy Management System) platforms with the SCCR platform of the Florence pilot.
- Feasilibity studies for integrating the EMM system within EMS and using EMS as a unique interface with the SCCR platform.
- Plan of dissemination of Smart Info devices according to the timing of the execution of the energy efficinecy interventions.

Electric Vehicle Fleet & Infrastructure Adaptation
The main objective of the intervention would be promoting electric vehicles by:
Having 100 full electric taxi vehicles and making taxi services more efficient (very fast recharge); And giving facilitations to taxi owners (reserved fast recharging stations, app for the recharge, agreements with vehicle providers for special conditions, reduced license fees, prioritization of e-services)
- Analysis of the locations for fast recharge stations and selection of the sites.
- 4 very fast recharge stations allocated and in service.
- New 70 e-taxi licences by public tendering procedure (25% discount for e-licencees).
- Study for the optimisation of the existing public infrastructure in the district (ongoing).
Projected save of 162.000 litres of fuel in the 2016-2017 timeframe. 648.000 litres by the end of the project.
Projected cut of CO2 emmisions by 142,5 tonnes in the 2016-2017 timeframe. 570 tonnes by the end of the project.
Detecting the location for new public recharging stations (“recharging islands”).
Analysing the impact of electric mobility on the grid.
Developing the interaction of the EMM with the platform/SCCR.
Advanced mobility services will be provided, such as:
Suggestions to citizens and to public administration decision makers
Dynamic pricing and special discounts or special treatment for vulnerable citizens with special needs
- Development of a mobile app for taxi drivers to book fast recharges from the recharge stations and to access to the status of public infrastructures in real time.
- The possibility of choosing an e-taxi at the reservation page on the national taxi mobile app.
- The creation of a special taxi service for weakened people, the elderly and the handicapped.
- Giving priority and discounts to women during nightime.
- The creation of a sustainable mobility communication campaign.
- New additional e-sharing operators (car and van).
- Bike sharing free flow

Local IT Systems Integrated with SCCR
Local IT Systems of the municipality will be integrated with the ICT Smart City Platform concept. This platform will act as a city-wide dashboard regarding Smart City measurements. by adopting open source, a leading concept.
- Requirements and specifications for the SCCR with security evaluation have been drawn.
- Data Aggregation Platform test built, SCCR Dashboard prototyped (under continuous improvement).
- IoT ORION Fi-Ware Context Broker has been tested with its integration in the UNIFI platform with CYGNUS/MongoDB and from this to the aggregator and Control Room Dashboard.
- SpagoBI Fi-Ware Business Intelligence tool has been tested (results shared in WP6).
- Hackathon in Florence (Oct. 2017) with the aim to start conceiving connections from REPLICATE APO to the national Data & Analytics Framework.
Smart IoT devices (Smart Irrigation, Smart Bench, Smart Waste) in urban environments and the supporting infrastructure.
- CityLink smart call-box with the possibility to disseminate the project in a man square in Florence.
- Installed 8 Smart Waste tower prototypes which are sending data to the M2M platform (this is going to be integrated into the main dashboard).
- 1st Smart Bench installed in Museo del 900 (it’s sending data to the M2M platform, and from there it’s transferred to the dashboard).
- 2 gardens have been defined for Smart Irrigation.
- Specs for further Smart Benches.
Smart Waste bin trials are managed directly by Alia, which is not a partner of the Replicate project, but is a public utility: TIM also collaborates with Alia for the connection to the M2M platform. Telecom also provides and gathers additional experiences on waste sensors.
Local Service Management
This intervention aims to deploy assets in services through the ICT Smart City Platform.
- Energy (recharge station, smart grid).
- Mobility (parking manager trials, traffic sensors ITS).
- IoT (Smart Bench, Smart Waste, WiFi).
- Big Data Analitics (Social Network Analysis Manager, Open Data).
Collection of the remaining data into the Platform (i.e. Smart Green Manager: under design process).
Consolidation of already collected data.
This intervention will allow the implementation of distributed architecture for Big Data.
- Starting from the DoA, the possible data sources for the Smart City Control Room have been defined, and a first set of possible metadata from each source was identified.
- Compared analysis of data sources provided and needed.
- Ownership: For each data source, the impact on property rights and data ownership has been analyzed with 1:1 calls with the different partners owning the corresponding data source (much data still belongs to the municipality, therefore there’s a minor impact in it’s usage within the control room.
Information, managing and control to the city decision makers but also apps digital basket for citizens are foreseen, that will share the same basic library for access to the Smart City Platform APIs, also collecting information about the user behavior, etc.
- Meetings with taxi cooperatives.
- Analysis and implementation of contents/services in the TIM City Link.
- Analysis and implementation of contents and information in the Museo Novecento Smart Bench.
- Fast Booking app prototyped & first usability test performed by municipality.
- Go-Green app prototyped & first usability test performed by municipality.
Smart Public Lighting
New integrated lighting system equipped with the latest technology for added value services: The lighting system will be connected to the surveillance light system, the municipality’s WiFi network, and cross cutting with mobility. Traffic control will integrate different systems which aim to optimize the impacting area. Data regarding energy consumption, taken actions/decisions, and collective user behaviour will be accesible from the ICT integrated infrastructure.
- Energy efficiency measure design, tendering and relying.
- Smart Lighting System connected with traffic control: Pilot test and development at Cascine Park.
- A new model for the lamp post is being designed for the Smart Lighting System, with WiFi capabilities, “light” surveillance system, wind measurement capabilities, and traffic control.
SILFI spa, as ESCo, is applying for the TEE “Energy Efficiency Certificates”: the project was presented to the GSE, covering a sample of about 1800 LED lightbulbs. The design submitted is being evaluated by the GSE.
