REFLOW (Horizon H2020-SC5-2018-2) project objectives
Through the competences of the project partners, the City Hall of Cluj-Napoca, Aries Transilvania and INCDTIM (CETATEA), it is involved in developing models that can lead to the transformation of European cities into viable long-term systems, both from the social and economic point of view as well as the environment.
Through the REFLOW project, models will be developed in 6 European cities (Cluj-Napoca, Amsterdam, Berlin, Milan, Paris and Vejle) that will evaluate the ways of implementing the circular economy in different fields, while also evaluating the impact of these models on a social level, economic and environmental issues.
As a partner in REFLOW, the institute through its Research Center for Alternative Energies CETATEA, will cooperate in providing innovative technological solutions for energy transition pathways. REFLOW will establish new low-carbon business practices for improving energy efficiency through a unified, highly replicable platform for integrated transition analysis, forecasting and deployment: a service network bringing together local government, energy service providers and communities local, assisting the common adoption and implementation of the most suitable investments in energy efficiency and mitigation of the local non-technological barriers for the transition.
