PEDs can play an important part in the energy transition for urban areas. Implementation of PEDs require integration of energy planning in urban planning processes, as well as a committed network of stakeholders from the public and private sector. The aim of FLEXPOSTS is to provide replicable strategies for improving the process of creating PEDs with a particular emphasis on stakeholder engagement, and to create replicable innovative business models for flexible energy systems. To do so, FLEXPOSTS will apply an interdisciplinary approach for integrating energy and urban planning. This approach is demonstrated in two demo sites, Zwette VI (Leeuwarden, the Netherlands), and Aalborg East (Denmark). In these demo’s, the lessons learnt and new insights from research will be translated to practice and vice versa. More specifically, Zwette VI focusses on energy system planning issues hindering further urban development and application of flexibility. Aalborg East focusses on mixed-use neighbourhoods with partnerships between local stakeholders, seeking to implement solutions with the ambition of moving towards net-zero emissions. The project results will facilitate the emergence of PEDs as green energy solutions for urban areas, but also the enabling of PEDs as a solution for energy system planning issues, such as electricity grid congestion.
