FED - Fossil Free Energy Districts

WHAT: The Fossil-free Energy Districts project, FED, is an innovative effort by the City of Gothenburg to decrease the use of energy and the dependence on fossil fuel in a built environment. A unique local marketplace for electricity, district heating and cooling is developed together with nine strong partners. 

The FED project was ongoing during 2017−2019. FED was co-financed by the European Regional and Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative, an initiative of the European Commission for cities to test new solutions for urban challenges. The total project budget is 5,8 M euro. 

The FED system and testbed will continue to be active in some form.
