SMART CITY GRAZ WAAGNER BIRO
The next project in our SCALE Mobility Programme is SMART CITY GRAZ WAAGNER BIRO in Graz/ Austria. A new energy-self-sufficient district will emerge in the former industrial area near the main railway station, close to the cultural venue Helmut List Halle. Here, sustainable technologies in the areas of energy, building technology and mobility are used for the first time – for the intelligent city of the future.
The demonstration buildings include the large-scale testing of Grätzel cells on the new Science Tower, the realization of the local energy network for the quarter as well as multimodal mobility solutions. A high-quality public urban space connects the premium residential and office buildings to the new school campus. By 2025, an additional 3800 people are supposed to live in the Smart City Graz Waagner Biro quarter. Besides, around 1500 places of employment are created.
