Local Renewables Conference:
Local Renewables Conference 2016
26-28 October, 2016 - Freiburg and Basel
Energising the smart city and region
The City of Freiburg, the City of Basel and ICLEI Europe are pleased to invite you to the Local Renewables Conference 2016. The conference will take place on 26-28 October, 2016 in Freiburg (Germany) and Basel (Switzerland).
In the face of rapidly growing global energy needs, the EU Energy Union recognises the importance of cities and regions in making energy more secure, affordable and sustainable. At a time when European cities are searching for innovative ways of meeting energy demands while responding to citizens’ needs, the conference will address key issues:
› The potential of smart technologies for urban energy transformation
› How do smart technologies affect quality of life?
› What are the related local economic opportunities?
› What is the role of social innovation in the urban energy transformation?
› How can citizens be engaged?
The 7th edition of the Local Renewables Series will build on the success of previous conferences by bringing together leading and learning cities, policy-makers from European and national governments, business, research and finance institutions, and will showcase practical and innovative examples of how to reduce energy use, as well as how to make best use of energy sources in the region.
