- Interconnection and usage optimisation, with the extension of smart grid to support higher renewable penetration and prioritisation, and electrification of heat and transport
- Conversion to electric mobility with electric vehicles, e-bikes, e-scooters, and mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) solutions, as well as fast-charging infrastructure
- Building technologies for better insulation and less thermal energy loss; passive building construction, green roofs, and heat-island reduction
- Nature-based solutions, regeneration of green spaces, planting trees, encouraging urban agriculture, and restoring wildlife habitats.
