By working closely with our clients, Smart City Lab has an integrated and holistic approach of the team in each project. After an initial meeting with the project team comprizing of account management unit, engineering experts, project managemet unit and the financial and legal unit, we follow a detailed and accountable engagement toward the client by developing strict protocolls, tailor-made schedules and establish step-by-step progress reporting practices. Our team will undertake all necessary steps to identify, analyze, implement and monitor the development and successfull project delivery.


1. Preliminary energy assessment (PEA)

The preliminary energy assessment process for the existing conditions and potential energy savings scenarios. Preliminary calculation of installation costs and operational costs.

2. Inital Energy Analysis and Business plan modelling (IGA)

A holistic analysis of the initiatives in energy efficiency and renewable energy system investments, most often based on the best scenarios derived from the initial PEA.

3. Contracting

Based on the detailed results of the actual energy analysis assessment and the clients requirements, we develop tailor made contracting responsabilities and agreement. This contract will result in a design&construction contract or in an energy service provider contract. When financing is required by the client there are additional features for the financing cost assessment opportunities.

The institutes have as their function the performance and promotion of high quality applied scientific research.

As part of the agenda for the modernization of higher education in Albania, the institutes aim to help the university meet the requirements of the standards and criteria of the European system for quality assurance.

The increased importance of knowledge and the role of the university in incubation of technology-based firms has given it a more prominent place in the institutional firmament.

Scientific research is oriented towards applications in the social and economic life of the country and beyond, aiming at the development of innovations and the continuous growth and training of human capital, increasing and strengthening the opportunities and qualities of expertise.

The entrepreneurial university takes a proactive stance in putting knowledge to use and in broadening the input into the creation of academic knowledge.

Thus, it operates according to an interactive rather than a linear model of innovation.

As firms raise their technological level, they move closer to an academic model, engaging in higher levels of training and in sharing of knowledge.

The quintuple helix model can be seen as an enhancement of the quadruple helix perspective that not only focuses on the actors from academia, government, and industry, but also recognizes the increased role played by civil society and its environment.

Government acts as a public entrepreneur and venture capitalist in addition to its traditional regulatory role in setting the rules of the game.

Moving beyond product development, innovation then becomes an endogenous process of “taking the role of the other”, encouraging hybridization among the institutional spheres.

The Quadruple Helix Model highlights the importance of society participating in research and innovation. Citizens actually are Major Actor in National Innovation Systems.

Today, involving the citizens in research, development, and innovation is the dominant paradigm both in international STI-policy and in innovation research. The concept forms the backbone of several national innovation policies, strengthening regional innovation systems and enabling better evaluation of research organizations and research proposals.

Quintuple HELIX

The synergy that will be created in the model of Quintuple Helix model of cooperation throw – Industry and Business / Governance and Public Administration / International Organizations and Donors / Citizens and Consumers / Academia and Institute.

Our approach is based on the Quintuple Helix. The framework describes university-industry-government-public-environment interactions within a knowledge economy. The Quintuple Helix model is a new perspective of the ‘’natural environments of society’’.
