Heroes selected by AI4Cities for phase 2

During this phase the selected suppliers will get the opportunity to create the first prototype of the solutions they proposed in Phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 started this month and will last until December 2021, after which the Buyers Group will make the final shift and choose the six suppliers (three in each lot) that will continue to the final phase of the project.

The project is looking for AI solutions that can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the fields of mobility and energy, two domains responsible for 82% of all greenhouse gas emissions in European cities.  

Heroes belongs to the 10 suppliers in the Energy Lot which continue to Phase 2 of the AI4Cities Pre-Commercial Procurement project. During this phase the selected suppliers will get the opportunity to create the first prototype of the solutions they proposed in Phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 started this month and will last until December 2021, after which the Buyers Group will make the final shift and choose the six suppliers (three in each lot) that will continue to the final phase of the project.

The proposed solution of Heroes
The solution that Heroes proposes aims at reducing 
energy consumption of public buildings by using AI, IoT & Cloud technologies. By reducing energy consumption, they directly reduce CO2 emissions through the reduced consumption of electricity and/or natural gas. 

Heroes has received budget to further work on a prototype of their project, based on lean principles and agile methods. They will be supported in this by the partner cities of the Ai4Cities project – each city has been paired to two solutions in each Lot. The suppliers have three months to do work on their prototype, following which the Buyers Group will decide which contractors go on to Phase 3 of the project. In this Phase the developed solutions will be tested in a minimum of two cities.

The AI4Cities Buyers Group consists of lead procurer Forum Virium, representing the City of Helsinki, Cap Digital, representing Paris Region, the City of Amsterdam, the City of Copenhagen, the City of Tallinn and the City of Stavanger. 

These six cities and regions have developed ambitious strategies and policy plans to become carbon neutral by – at latest – 2050. For more information, click here

This is part of the AI4Cities project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
