Abstract [en]

Starting from the 90s, the design of new districts having strong environmental and energy sustainable profiles has gained attention among public administrations and project teams. These co-operations have brought new lines of research oriented towards the definition of different energy strategies at the urban and local scales.

Effectiveness of the energy sustainable actions on the new developments: the case of Hammarby Sjöstad Stockholm is focused on the local approach and solutions for the district design, which have been recognized as fundamental for controlling energy demand, consumption and production. In particular, the role of the district design regards the possibility to adapt the urban grid to the climatic and environmental characteristics of a place (Breheny, 1992; Jenks et al., 2000), contributing in changing energy and environmental performance of a settlement, thanks also to the feasibility for planting energy saving/production technologies (Bell et al., 2003; Steemers et al., 2000).

Aim of the paper is to underline the different policies and project tools that have given the best results in energy performance at the district scale. Hammarby Sjöstad – Stockholm’s new eco-designed district – has been chosen as case study for define general parameters and guidelines for environmental and energy sustainable districts. The ecological footprint and the efficiency increase have been compared with the existing city, in order to better understand results and gaps.
