Fields of Action

Water

One of the most serious consequences of climate change in Portugal is the alteration of precipitation patterns, with rainfall becoming more concentrated in shorter periods, alternating with long dry spells, and an increase in the frequency and intensity of heatwaves. This reality is exacerbated by the growing demand for water, leading to excessive exploitation and regional imbalances in water resource availability, as well as the deterioration of water quality.

Lisboa E-Nova is actively engaged in the development of management models that ensure an integrated approach to the urban water cycle, focusing strongly on water efficiency and source diversification. This includes the promotion of the use of reclaimed water and the utilization of non-potable water whenever possible.

Energy

Currently, urban areas account for over 2/3 of energy consumption and more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. With the global population increasingly residing in cities, a significant rise in energy demand in these areas is expected, leading to a greater need to meet the growing requirements of the populations.

Lisboa E-Nova focuses its efforts on promoting energy efficiency and the efficient use of energy, adopting renewable energy sources, eradicating energy poverty, and supporting citizens in implementing more sustainable and accessible solutions.

Climate

The challenges faced by cities demand a coordinated effort in combating climate change. Only through such concerted action is it possible to chart a feasible path towards a carbon-neutral economy and society that simultaneously promotes economic prosperity and enhances the quality of life for its citizens.

Lisbon aims to achieve its climate neutrality goal by 2030, requiring a collective effort from the entire local community. Therefore, Lisboa E-Nova provides technical support in gathering data on specific indicators, identifying measures, and assessing the impact generated by implemented actions and initiatives. This support ensures the efficient and effective execution of the defined strategies.

Circularity

The primary focus of the circular economy lies in material management, ensuring that resource cycles are “closed,” akin to what occurs in natural ecosystems. This principle leads us to the conclusion that in a perfect circular economy, materials are managed in a way that allows them to be “used indefinitely.”

Lisboa E-Nova’s activities in the circular economy are centered on the design and compilation of a set of actions based on an updated materials matrix. Additionally, the organization works on establishing a platform for stakeholders that enables and enhances the city’s circular economy strategy. This involves creating a system where materials are reused, recycled, and repurposed, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to resource management.

Mobility

The dynamics of vibrant and attractive cities are built upon an efficient, reliable, and low-carbon mobility system—undeniable aspects in the discourse on urban mobility conditions, crucial for a high quality of life in cities.

The transportation sector, excluding air traffic, accounts for approximately 40% of energy consumption and CO2 emissions in Lisbon.

Lisboa E-Nova engages in close collaboration with stakeholders in the mobility sector, working in proximity to its associates. This involves monitoring planning processes and the implementation of measures aimed at fostering a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to urban mobility.
