Helsinki is pioneer in intelligent energy solutions and Salusfin solution is part of the project. Cities globally produce 70% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Helsinki is taking great steps with its people and businesses to make the city carbon neutral. This goal is supported by the mySMARTLife project, which includes an experiment with autonomous electric bus and encourages housing associations in Merihaka to become more energy efficient.
The project is implemented by City of Helsinki, Helen Oy, Forum Virium Helsinki Oy, Metropolia Polytechnic, VTT Technical Research Center, Fourdeg Oy and Salusfin Oy. The European Commission has granted € 18 million funding for a joint project in 2017-2022. Helsinki’s part of the budget accounts for € 5.6 million. The project also includes the cities of Hamburg and Nantes.
