Positive Energy Districts and the Quest of Smart Cities towards a Carbon-Neutral Future


Cities need to play a leading role in the energy transition. With more than 100+ cities committed to becoming net zero carbon by 2050, we need to identify and adapt technologies to fit urban requirements. The start are impulses from our energy trainers form the EU project SPARCS. Then later in the workshop, energy experts, researchers and entrepreneurs are invited to identify the potential application of their product/technology/research in the urban context. The goal is to find and adapt solutions that can help cities be carbon neutral in the near future.

Who can join: Energy professional, municipal representatives, energy utility representatives
Language: This event will be held in English.
