Within TRANSFORM program a web based tool providing the relevant stakeholders in cities with information facilitating informed decision making was developed and called Decision Support Environment. In its essence, the DSE supports the planning and implementation processes in cities on the way to reaching the cities’ or district’s carbon reduction and energy saving targets. The information, as provided by the tool, will support stakeholders in their decision making and communication processes related to the setting and implementation of most effective measures, their locations and timeframes, required for their implementation. The DSE tool is being further developed by Accenture and Macomi, as you can find on the DSE website.
