28.10.2016 -> Local Renewables Conference 2016 - Energising the Smart City and Region

Global energy needs are set to increase 40% by 2030. In response, the EU Energy Union has recognised the importance of putting cities and regions central in making energy more secure, affordable and sustainable. European cities are searching for innovative ways of meeting energy demands whilst responding to citizen needs. Smart technologies are increasingly considered as appropriate solutions to improving citizens’ quality of life and responding to the EU climate and energy ambitions.

Energy provision and usage are core elements in the pursuit of a smart city. But the question arises whether a smart city can also be a sustainable city.

  • What role can, and should, smart technologies play in the search for improved energy efficiency and quality of life in a city?
  • What are the opportunities and limitations of new technologies for urban energy transformation?
  • What is the role of social innovation and citizen engagement?
