2 Content of the presentation
1 ECO2 – what and why 2 How we work 3 ECO2 themes and project examples 4 Partnerships and networks 5 From new ideas to established practices

3 Tampere and Tampere Central Region in figures (2010)
Tampere has 213,000 inhabitants, 3rd biggest city of Finland Tampere Central Region has 356,826 inhabitants, 2nd biggest growth centre of Finland 2/3 of the Finns live within 200 km range from Tampere In Tampere Central Region GDP/inhabitant over 35,000 Euros (anticipated information 2009), GDP-index 108 (Finland=100)

4 The Climate Commitments of Tampere
Aalborg Commitments 2007 Covenant of Mayors 2008 –(EU/ energy): over 20 % decrease CO2 emissions from 1990 level until 2020 > Sustainable Energy Action Plan Eurocities Declaration of Mayors 2009 Agreement with Ministry of Employment and the Economy > Energy Efficiency Plan , the City will decrease its energy consumption 9 % from 2005 level until 2016 Regional Climate Change Strategy > at least 30 % less CO2emissions in 2030

5 Why ECO2? The idea for ECO2 came about when the strategic regional planning for Tampere region started in 2007 Regional Climate Strategy 2010 The implementation of the Regional Climate strategy required cross- sectoral coordination The benefits of tackling climate change: Supporting green growth Cost benefits A more comfortable city for citizens The benefits for city image Preparing for stricter climate regulation in the future 5

Objectives Implementing the Climate commitments of city of Tampere Changing city development practices towards sustainability Facilitating growth in sustainable business Becoming a forerunner in climate change abatement

ECO2 team coordinates and supports the climate activities of the city of Tampere and initiates co-operation and new projects Wide-ranging cooperation between various actors New city planning tools Development projects Energy-efficient pilot projects Eco-efficient built environment, mobility and renewably energy

8 Keys to succes Keys to success
Back-up from political and city management level Cross-sectoral coordination Wide cooperation locally, nationally and internationally Active marketing and communication Enthusiasm, courage Know-how on eco-efficient city planning (training own staff & getting expertise from outside)

9 Economic and Urban Development
ECO2 – ORGANISATION : City Board Sitra Economic and Urban Development Director Kari Kankaala Steering Group Director of Environmental policy Kaisu Anttonen Advisory Board Mayor Timo P. Nieminen Project Team Manager Pauli Välimäki Project specialists: Elli Kotakorpi Antti Nikkanen Elina Seppänen Project secretary: Wilma Karikko Construction Forum Mobility Forum Energy Forum

10 Sustainable energy – Tampere Power utility’s vision
Our goals Reduce our emission more than 50 % Increase the amount of renewable energy at least up to 40 % Renovating existing power plants for using onlybiomass or biogas  GWh Renovating hydro power plants Increasing ownerships on both Onshore and Offshore Wind Power companies  200 GWh Waste burning plant building project in cooperation Regional Solid Waste Management Ltd  MW Large scale heat pumps to exploit waste water heat  2x18 MW

11 Renewable energy Renewable energy pilot project together with 6 largest cities in Finland Tampere: solar energy, wood pellet power plant, small-scale bio district heating, carbon neutral Särkänniemi Adventure Park and Tampere Hall Congress and Concert Centre Charting the potential for small-scale wind power and solar energy in the city area

12 Eco-efficient built environment
Tools for ecoefficient urban planning Economic incentives for low energy buildings (piloted in Vuores) Energy system analysis as a part of the urban planning process (e.g. Koukkuranta, Isokuusi) All new buildings constructed by the city are at least energy class A All new buildings (2012 ) built in city owned plots have to be at least energy class A A new information center for sustainable building and construction and energy use in housing Promoting eco-efficient complementary construction (Tammela) Eco-efficient urban development projects in: e.g. Härmälänranta, Vuores housing fair area, Koukkuranta, Nurmi-Sorila “Sun City”, wood Vuores  Steering the whole urban planning process towards eco-efficiency

13 Eco-efficiency tool for urban development
Project aim is to create an eco-efficiency tool for urban development. Tool is developed together with 7 cities, 2 developers and Ministry of Environment. Research is done by VTT Research Centre of Finland, Aalto-university and Finnish Environmental Institute. Tool is designed to be usedboth by public and Private sector.


15 Eco-efficient renovation
Tapre and Tarmo -projects Information centre for energy efficient construction Energy efficiency goals in city’s own renovations. Energy-efficient renovation and complementary construction project in Tammela district 15

16 Low energy buildings Finland’s first passive energy day care centre will be built in Luhtaankatu this year The Vuores housing fair will have around 10 passive and zero energy houses Near zero energy house ”Lantti”, partners: Aalto University, Sitra, ARA, TA-Yhtymä Oy, Lapponia House Oy, City of Tampere

17 Sustainable mobility

18 Partnerships

19 ECO2 – Eco-efficient Tampere 2020 Partnerships
The project implements the climate and energy objectives of the City of Tampere. The programme supports projects that promote a low-carbon and carbon-neutral urban structure in the fields of sustainable construction, energy and mobility. Project examples Partners Role of ECO2 Expected Outcomes Härmälänranta Housing area Skanska Construction Ltd Expert advice Low-carbon living area Tampere Central arena NCC, Tampereen keskusareena oy Co-funding for eco-efficiency study Eco-efficient Central Arena Tool for eco-efficient urban planning Tekes, VTT, Syke, Skanska, YIT, other cities, Ministry of Environment Joint development project A new tool for eco-efficient urban planning TAPRE Tampere real estate services, Axovaatio oy, Local retailers Kesko and POK, The Evangelical Lutheran Congregation, Pirkanmaan hospital district, Pirkanmaan isännöitsijät Energy efficient renovations in public buildings Vuores housing area Vuores-project, construction companies, Tampere power utility, research partners, Expert advice, funding, joint projects Low-carbon living area, new practices in urban development

20 International cooperation
City networks Eurocities ja Civitas Covenant of Mayors Cascade: Cities exchanging on local energy leadership International competitions: The first price in Solutions competition A finalist in Nordic energy city 2011 –competition A finalist in European Public Sector Awards 2011

21 Mayors’ climate network
The mayors of the the six largest cities of Finland established the Mayors’ climate network in Spring 2011. The mayor of Tampere Timo P. Nieminen is the chair and the ECO2 team acts as secretary. In August 2011 six climate initiatives were announced: development of a roadmap on energy-smart construction for each city development of construction instructions and supervision in the direction of energy information and quality management development of climate information and support for citizens’ climate acts through a joint project by the cities assignment of eco-support staff for workplaces lowering the need for travel by introduction of teleconferencing climate impact assessment in budgeting Arvoisat tiedotusvälineiden edustajat, hyvät naiset ja herrat, Pormestari Niemisen jälkeen tarkoituksenani on esitellä hieman yksityiskohtaisemmin kuuden suurimman kaupungin ilmastoverkoston aloitteita. On totta, että kukin kaupunki on omalla tahollaan ollut aktiivinen ilmasto- ja energiapolitiikan alueella. On laadittu ilmasto- ja energiastrategioita, käynnistetty erilaisia projekteja ja pienempiä hankkeita ja oltu mukana myös kansainvälisessä yhteistyössä. Yhteistyö kaupunkien kesken niin kotimaassa kuin yli rajojen onkin erinomaisen tärkeää ilmastonmuutoksen kaltaisen valtavat mittasuhteet omaavan ilmiön vastaisessa kamppailussa. Ruutia ei kannata keksiä useaan kertaan. Hyviksi koetut toimintamallit kannattaa ottaa muitta mutkitta käyttöön muissakin kaupungeissa. Eräs keskeinen yhteistyömuoto on ollut EU:n käynnistämä Covenant of Mayors, josta kerron muutamalla sanalla. 21 21

22 From new ideas to established practices examples
The Mechanism Example What is still needed Integrating eco-efficiency in policy guidelines New regulations for energy efficiency were integrateding in land use policy in November 2011 Implementation follow-up Capacity development through pilots Vuores area as a platform for eco-efficiency, i.e. Energy system analysis as a part of planning process Resources and education for planners, nominating a responsible person for energy aspects New regulations Developing easy-to-use tools and checklists Eco-efficiency tool for urban planning A decision that the tool will be used in all urban planning processes Developing new practices and ownership of energy efficiency through projects (choosing the right owner for the project) Tapre-project, funded partly by ECO2, coordinated by Tampere Real Estate services Scaling-out the project to residential sector Learning from good examples ECO2 forums
