+CityxChange, A Smart City Project

Limerick City and County Council is part of a new pan-European project, +CityxChange (Positive City ExChange), a smart city project, that has been granted funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme in the call for ‘Smart cities and communities’.

The project aims to find to new ways of helping to reduce energy consumption while maintaining the characteristic Georgian heritage of Limerick city centre.


Limerick is one of two EU ‘lighthouse’ cities that have been selected for a major climate-change pilot programme that will give a lead to the rest of Europe on how to dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of urban areas.

The EU +CityxChange Programme (Positive City Exchange) sees Limerick, along with Trondheim in Norway, chosen to roll out a project that has the potential to revolutionize how we produce and use energy in European cities and towns.
