A low-emission and resilient future for alpine winter tourism areas (Smart Altitude)

The focus of the Smart Altitude project were the development of strategies for reducing CO2 emissions in winter tourism regions. This was based on existing key figures, monitoring and energy management systems in mountain regions. The measures developed were demonstrated at three sites with different focus: Energy consumption reduction in Krvavec (Slovenia), holistic management in Madonna di Campiglio (Italy), and Alpine smart grids in Les Orres (France). Replication in 20 other Alpine Space territories is planned. The target groups were political decision-makers, infrastructure operators, investors, tourism associations and companies.

Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum was responsible for the involvement of SMEs in the implementation of low-carbon measures, supported the replication strategy and the establishment of a network of low-carbon winter tourism regions. It also accompanied the analysis of innovative ecosystems needed to implement energy management systems in ski resorts.

The project was coordinated by the municipality of Les Orres, France.
