The ultimate aim is to implement a process that allows the partners to develop roadmaps for the various themes that together form the Energy Roadmap towards their ambition of becoming Smart Cities. R4E focuses on three areas within the domain of sustainable energy:  1. Smart buildings 2. Smart mobility 3. Smart urban spaces The impact of the R4E project is that the visions will enable short term activities and decisions with a long term perspective. The consortium consists of 8 cities : Eindhoven (Project Coordinator), Forlì, Istanbul, Newcastle, Murcia, Palermo, Sant Cugat del Vallès and Tallinn; and 2 knowledge partners: Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).
