The Campus of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University is located in the north-east of St. Petersburg. Five connected, yet relatively isolated campus sites form the Energy Improvement District Polytechnic.The vast majority of residents are students living in temporary dormitories, yet the area houses a variety of university functions: educational, administrative and manufacture buildings, apartments houses, sports complex with swimming pool, preschool additional education, polyclinic, garage. The area is well connected to the city centre with different metro stations and bus lines.

Themes addressed by the EID Polytechnic strategy are: performance of the energy system in the EID (technical aspects), efficiency of the heating and electricity consumption in EID (economical aspects) and end users’ motivation and behavior (social aspects).
