Companies develop pilot projects aimed at carbon neutrality in Lisbon

Monitoring cities with a view to sustainability is setting the profile of urban environments to respond more effectively to people's needs and improve their quality of life.


In this sense, the Lisbon Municipality, together with the consultancy Beta-i, promoted the Smart Open Lisbon Energy Transition, intending to reduce carbon emissions in the city and improve the experience of its citizens.


Six projects reached the end of the programme and are already being applied in a natural context.


One of these projects is from the start-up EVE which, in partnership with the Portuguese infrastructure operator Brisa, has developed an analytical tool based on artificial intelligence that aims to help in the roadside assistance of its electric fleet.


Carris, the Lisbon transport company, Schréder and the start-up Liveable Cities have also developed a project to monitor vehicles' behaviour, speeds and environmental parameters, allowing Brisa to measure the environmental impact and traffic behaviour at intersections.

In addition, the Lisbon-based transport company, in partnership with EVE, created a second pilot project based on data analysis on the performance of its vehicles with the aim of optimising fleet management and carbon consumption.


Another of the companies involved is ANA-Aeroportos de Portugal, which is simultaneously developing an Artificial Intelligence pilot project with the Spanish Predictive Company at Lisbon Airport to make its air conditioning system more efficient. This project will also lead to energy savings, cost optimisation and the reduction of CO2 emissions. The company is also studying the possibility of adopting new approaches and implementing wind microturbines in an airport context.
