Abstract

The Action Plan 3.2 of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) introduces the concept of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs), identifying in the district scale the ideal field of investigation to achieve the sustainable urban development goals set by Agenda 2030. The paper outlines the European research orientation on PEDs by drawing the state-of-art of the leading programs, partnerships and Research & Innovation projects. The central aim of this review is to investigate the specificities of PEDs and sustainable districts in the Mediterranean countries, where there are currently few but promising pilot projects. The research focus is on PEDs potential to improve the quality of life in existing urban context, crucial for the Mediterranean area. Finally, the research analyses some Italian ongoing projects as examples of PEDs applied to existing contexts.
