Less is more – Valencias environmental responsability

Since 2014 the strategy of Valencia commits to reduce emissions by 2020, increase the use of renewable energy and increase energy efficiency by 20%. The city was trialling a new, innovative delivery system, which was operating from October 2014 to January 2015, thanks to the SMILE project. In the framework of this pilot, two electrically assisted tricycles were delivering parcels within the historical city centre and offered an agile, silent, flexible and green alternative to traditional delivery vans.

In 2016, Valencia became a successful pilot city for the ACCENT project (Accompany cities in energy strategy). In order to support the energy transition of European cities, ACCENT will provide city stakeholders data and tools to map and diagnose existing energetic situation, and design energy strategies which maximize energy efficiency.
