Session Description:

#ETtalks – Engineering words into action

Imagine a world where smog is no longer a problem, where AI predicts the need for heating and cooling, and where entire city districts become CO2 neutral.

This world is not that far away – and we’re ready to engineer words into action, with a new edition of #ETtalks, this time an integrated part of the Euroheat & Power Congress in Nantes.

Following the well-known formula of bold, inspiring, ideas and bias for action, #ETtalks Nantes is focused on the transforming potential of modern district energy systems: District Energy 4.0.

The district energy systems of tomorrow are efficient, greener and more intelligent than ever. They are the fastest way to reduce urban emissions. So why is District Energy 4.0 not everywhere?
Three brilliant speakers will come with three ideas that can bring the sector forward:


  • Ralph TALMONT │ Curator and MC for TEDx, innovation catalyst, speaker, author, consultant and advisor on creativity, strategy, communication, new media and publishing


  • How to stay ahead of the disruption? From smart buildings to smart markets
    Jukka AHO | CEO | Leanheat
  • ATo the moon and back. Putting district energy at the core of the energy transition
    Benjamin BRULLON | CEO | Itherm conseil
  • Re-branding a sector: if district heating was a person, what would the coach recommend?
    Florence RANSON | Founder | REDComms


#ETtalks are a global platform and series of events created to activate innovative thinking and solutions around climate and energy. They bring together some of the most brilliant speakers and visionaries to present innovative concepts of intelligent buildings and smart cities of the future.
