Energy neutral civil engineering work
The civil service of Breda has set themselves the goal to be CO2 neutral in 2044. In order to accomplish this, they would like to know if it would be possible to make a civil engineering work energy neutral. In this so called “Seventh Living Lab of Breda” the goal is to make a tunnel energy neutral, plus a form of traffic management will be applied and data will be harvested from the passing traffic.
i-Sago provides an advisory report to the municipality. To come to this report research has been done upon several potential tunnels, different technologies for energy harvesting and reduction of energy consumption that may be used herein and opportunities to generate data and use it for Smart City applications such as city traffic. On the basis of this report a pilot project is drawn up in collaboration with various parties to achieve a proof of concept.
