CASCINE/NOVOLI/LE PIAGGE DISTRICT INSIGHTS
An integrated strategy aiming at implementing the Smart City Plan in a smart district to be replicated and scaled up at metropolitan level. The area has been selected because of:
- Mix of uses: industrial settlements dismissed (ex Fiat, Manifattura Tabacchi) and tertiary activities (University campus, Justice Court, Merca¬rfir wholesale chain market, …)
- residential area: 5000 m2 constructed area/6000 buildings
- Novoli urban park close to Cascine, the biggest park of the city
- Relevance for the mobility sector: city’s new entrance, transport infrastructures (airport, stations, highway, tramlines under construction, mix mode parking lots, bike paths, …).
Towards an eco district: taking care of the environment and to city users thanks to the innovation. The process will be implemented integrating the three technological areas (energy, e- mobility and ICT) exploiting synergies.

The National Research Council (CNR) is the largest public research institution in Italy. CNR works on analysis of data about charging behaviour of electric vehicles. Based on this it develops models and tools for what-if analyses related to the diffusion of electric mobility at the city level, and its impact on the electrical grid. Moreover, CNR also develops models for NZEDs, which are then used to evaluate the energy efficiency actions performed or be performed by the interventions.
