To meet its ambition of speeding and scaling up Positive Clean Energy Solutions, ASCEND has developed four strategic objectives:

  1. Deliver two inclusive affordable Positive Clean Energy Districts in Lighthouse Cities Lyon and Munich.

  2. Bootstrap successful implementation of PCED in Multiplier Cities and LHCs.

  3. Scale up PCED solution packages for a large community of cities and investors.

  4. Disseminate widely our results to the smart cities community.
