The intent was to exploit the roofs of existing buildings as much as possible without consuming additional land.
Another fundamental aspect is the context in which we were called upon to design, namely a city subject to a particular urban evolution that, in relation to the conformation of the territory, has given rise to the constitution of an urban continuum squeezed between sea and mountains that has developed along the entire coast to form a linear and elongated city with clearly delineated ramifications inward through its valleys: Polcevera, Bisagno and Sturla.Leggi tutto
The considerable shortage of space that resulted has therefore prompted the design intent to recover the multiple areas available by defining a widespread project that can be divided into six intervention areas called clusters: industrial port east and west, commercial port east and west Genova Sestri Ponente-Multedo, Genova Prà.
The macro-activities that characterize this intervention are as follows:
- Construction of 6 photovoltaic fields in order to establish as many self-consumption energy communities;
- Replacement of traditional lighting fixtures with LED lighting fixtures;
- Supply of electric vehicles and installation of dedicated charging stations.
The photovoltaic systems will be installed in conjunction with storage systems that will make it possible to store the energy produced during periods of lower consumption and use it during periods of lower production and higher demand, increasing the capacity for energy self-sufficiency.
