As any steady-state infrastructure, SUMOSU Stations are simple in terms of building components, but powerful in relation to the impacts of policy and technology choices they foster. They respond to the most important challenges that sustainable urban planning is facing at the moment and can be a turning point for alternative energy developments andintegrated systems of public transport.
As a distinctive value opposed to most current systems, SUMOSU Stations offer an open solution allowing different actors to incorporate at any point and thus, avoiding absolute market power.

An easy and most cost effective way to reuse out-of-business gas stations within cities would be to tweak their original use by turning them into SUMOSU Stations, alternative transportation fueling sites. The space previously used by underground fuel tanks could easily fit the carousel of carsharing vehicles, or a battery pack designed with second-use batteries.
The integration and development of disadvantaged collectives is one of society’s challenges. To support these collectives, Urban Resilience works to offer these vulnerable groups an employment opportunity in SUMOSU Stations, which will allow them to develop professionally and personally.
SUMOSU Stations can incorporate vertical gardens: not only do they look beautiful, they also combat pollution by filtering harmful gases and help mitigate extreme summer temperatures.
