Staying ahead of the Game: Cities in the (Thermal) Energy Transition

Tuesday 4th May 2021 | 16:45 – 17:45 Society & Vision

Session Description:

Active players in their local energy markets, collaborating with their existing utilities and energy communities, cities across Europe are surpassing national energy transition targets by proactively setting their own ambitious strategies. Let’s explore together how smart city infrastructure and thermal networks go hand in hand, which drivers accelerate urban district heating projects and what still needs to be done! And above all, what cities need from us, national and EU policy-makers and investors!
