In the PROPEL project, positive energy districts (PEDs) are developed further by expanding the energy system of PEDs including transport means, adding bio-based energy-carriers from the food system. Food systems generate more than one third – 34% - of all man-made greenhouse gas emissions, while transports correspond to one fourth of the CO2 emissions. Adding innovative energy carriers via the food system and waste from green management connecting to the transport system via biogas energy, improving the possibility of off-grid operation contribute to making PEDs more viable from an environmental, societal and governance (ESG) perspective.
