Korneuburgs way2smart started in the year 2011, when the municipality of the town decided to start a big participation-project to define a Vision Statement and a Master Plan for its urban development. Smart people – citizens, politicians and administration - planned Korneuburgs way to 2036: with ambitious objectives in terms of energy and CO2-saving and concentration on “social interaction”. 2036 onwards, the municipality of Korneuburg wants to be energy-self- sufficient and carbon-neutral. With the Smart City demo-project “way2smart” measures of the Master Plan will be implemented evaluated regarding their feasibility and adapted if necessary. Smart technologies: The municipality of Korneuburg intends to rehabilitate two municipality-owned residential buildings, densify the area by way of superstructures and annexes and equip them with energy- generating areas – not for building nice penthouses for rich people, but covering young tenants’ demand for affordable small apartments. As accompanying measures, communications programs involving the buildings’ existing and new tenants as well as the further development – because neighbourhood is a big impact for the quality of lifestyle. Last, but not least, mobility measures like e-carsharing, a hitch-hiking-station, good cycle-parking-facilities etc. create the possibility to be mobile without a private car. Ultimately, the endeavours to achieve the ambitious objectives in terms of energy and CO2 saving in Korneuburg by 2036 are to be documented in a database in order to make the individual measures available as models and stimuli for comparable projects in the town.
