Our role in the RUGGEDISED project

Glasgow City Council, as part of its EU Horizon 2020 Smart Cities and Communities funded project RUGGEDISED (Rotterdam, Umea, Glasgow: Generating Exemplar Demonstrations in Sustainable Energy Districts), is, in tandem with developing various smart and sustainable energy measures, developing a Data-Based Decision Platform (DBDP). The DBDP will be a window into the various datasets generated throughout the project, as well as internal and external datasets utilised by Glasgow City Council. The DBDP will analyse and interpret various datasets to inform policy and strategy decisions in relation to city operations in the city, providing outputs that will inform operational actions.

Through RUGGEDISED, Glasgow will continue on its journey – transforming from an industrial city to a sustainable, resilient and low carbon city, focused on the future, growing from its past, and delivering a greener and smarter city.

RUGGEDISED in Glasgow will focus on the development of a Smart Street. The street is located in the city centre along a section of George Street and Duke Street, in an area of mixed residential, academic, community, retail, and industrial buildings. It will seek to address the challenges Glasgow faces from ageing infrastructure, fuel poverty and air pollution by integrating planned regeneration and development with smart city capabilities.

The Smart Street will include: district heating, an innovative roof mounted solar PV canopy, ducted wind turbines, energy arbitrage, power storage, EV charging, and smart grid controls.

The DBDP will be a window into the various datasets generated throughout the project, which will be combined with internal and external datasets utilised by Glasgow City Council and overlaid onto OS maps to create familiar map-based visualisations.

Where possible, common references will be used – such as the OS Mastermap TOID for buildings – to ensure that data generated as part of the project can be easily related to other datasets across the Council.  The DBDP will analyse and interpret various datasets to inform policy and strategy decisions in relation to city operations in the city, providing outputs that will inform operational actions.
