Designing The Future

Lisboa E-Nova develops projects with a sustainable and resilient future in mind, acting as an active element in the operationalization and transformation of the city, its citizens and the local economy.

The Strategic Guidelines (Energy, Water and Circular Economy) contribute to the Agency’s activities in the areas of mitigation and adaptation to climate change and the leverage of new ideas and products within a “green” development concept, thus promoting entrepreneurship and innovation.

Energy is a core area for Lisboa E-Nova: developing innovation projects that explore different aspects of energy sustainability, particularly in the areas of energy efficiency, intelligent energy management and renewable energies, as well as designing support projects and the operationalization of local public policies.

In the area of ​​Water, the Agency is focused on monitoring and analysing municipal consumption, identifying opportunities, supporting the implementation of measures and intelligent management of municipal water uses, Nexus Water-Energy, and is also supporting and promoting the reuse of treated wastewater in the city.

Lisboa E-Nova’s activity in the area of the circular economy is centred on the conception and compilation of the Action Plan for the Circular Economy of Lisbon, based on an updated matrix of materials, as well as for the establishment of a platform of stakeholders that make the city’s strategy feasible and help to leverage it.
