E-catalogue was created in 2014 within the framework of the international project GreenITNet (Eco-friendly information and communication technology network). E-catalogue includes 16 smart technical solutions which are introduced and implemented in Riga as recommended pilot projects for the multiplication in Riga and other cities. Demonstration projects cover the city's energy supply sector, infrastructure as well as zero-emission transport field with modern integrated information and communication technologies. All 16 projects are included as a basis of Riga City Sustainable Energy Action Plan for Smart Cities 2014-2020 (SEAP) approved by the Riga City Council in 2014. All of the demonstration projects are prepared on A4 double-layer paper format with description of the sources where it is possible to receive additional information as well as advices on each of the projects.
