Energy is one of the critical issues cities will need to address on their path to climate neutrality.

Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) are one key instrument for that transformation.

Trans-PED was a 2-year pilot project to advance the governance approach for positive energy district stakeholders to better realise deep changes to their cities. Trans-PED was an international project involving 11 partners from Austria, Belgium, and Sweden, led by KTH Royal institute of Technology and co-funded by JPI Urban Europe. The team has been developing advancements for the governance approach through collaboration with five established and aspirational PEDs.

Positive Energy Districts are urban neighbourhoods with annual net zero energy import and net zero CO2 emissions. A PED couples built environment, production, consumption, and mobility to reduce its energy use and produce the remainder locally. The European Union aims to support the planning, deployment, and replication of 100 PEDs by 2025.
