In recent years, the European Commission has enhanced strategies to promote ICT for energy efficiency in buildings and cities. In the smart city context, energy-related information coming from different data sources--both hardware and software--must be integrated into a common, smart digital archive for the city. DIMMER is a distributed software infrastructure for district information modeling and energy management. It correlates energy-related information from different data sources with user behavior patterns and feedback. Hence, different actors in this scenario can access relevant information for providing new services and developing more efficient policies to enhance energy optimization in cities. This will provide support for strategic city planning and will foster competition in the marketplace.
