IES for Cities

Map your route to zero-carbon, sustainable and healthier cities.

Delivering Resilient, Zero-Carbon Cities

By 2050, 70 per cent of the world’s population will live in a city. Demand for energy, water and other services will reach potentially unsustainable levels. Our ICL Technology provides an intelligent approach to community development so you can deliver a city that operates in an integrated fashion. One which uses digital technologies to enhance performance and wellbeing, reduce costs and resource consumption, and engage more effectively and actively with its citizens.

Zero-Carbon Action Plans

ICL technology helps you understand the performance of your city - now and into the future – simulating the impact of various net-zero interventions over time. Ensuring Climate Action Plans by are viable, cost effective and deliver the environmental impacts desired. 

  • Meet zero-carbon and energy reduction targets
  • Set Sustainable Energy Action Plans and monitor progress
  • Analyse potential impacts & feasibility of green policies
  • Integrate energy & environmental performance in city plans
  • Calculate building EUIs at scale and the impact of improvements
  • Find solutions which will be adaptable over time, supporting resilience

Urban Modelling - Renewables & Transport

Uncover hidden community renewable potential and investigate public transport and EV coverage across your city. Base your decisions on not only what is physically possible, but also on the preferences of citizens.

  • Determine renewable electricity generation or district level heat/cooling potential across large urban spaces
  • Assess the feasibility of low-carbon solutions at scale
  • Understand how likely it is that citizens will walk or cycle rather than drive
  • Evaluate various transport options, routes & accessibility of key amenities
  • Review, plan and optimise public transport and EV charger locations

Citizen Engagement

Generate city-wide building analytics and encourage citizens to engage with collaboration tools and interactive touchscreens. Or use the platform to deliver innovative consultations on proposed zero-carbon policies.

  • Involve citizens in driving building energy reduction
  • Compile city-wide building data & make city scale assessments of energy use
  • Visually engage citizens in planning policies and Sustainable Action Plans
  • Identify areas which would benefit from district heating systems or solar panels
  • Help citizens and businesses save money
