SparkCity – predicting the future of energy and mobility

Tierr@_de_N@die: How can we predict the result of implementing innovative solutions in termes of mobility and energy efficiency in real world conditions? Is it possible to know how your city would work if half of the population uses EV and half of the electricity comes from renewable sources? SparkCity has been created to show that theses proposals can really work.

We predict that most of our energy will come from solar and wind while mobility will increasingly be electric, autonomous and shared.

We use the open-source, agent-based SparkCity model. In it, we recreate realistic representations of real world regions, populated with recognizable people and machines. Then we bring the people and machines to life inside the computer allow our sustainable future to emerge, while policies and products can be tweaked for best results.
