Local Renewables Freiburg 2013 Conference
Local Renewables Freiburg 2013 Conference: "Shaping your solar city and region – Practical solutions from planning to implementation", 23-24 October 2013, Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.
The Local Renewables Freiburg 2013 Conference, taking place in Freiburg, Germany from 23 - 24 October 2013, will focus on how to shape solar cities and regions, and optimise local renewable energy potentials. In the current context of financial austerity, growing energy insecurity and resource scarcity local governments are called to act as drivers, moving towards smart cities and regions, and low-carbon economies to enable safe, secure and affordable energy in the long term.
The conference will examine the collaboration with local stakeholders, the value of technological innovations and how to identify sources of financing local action. This represents a valuable opportunity for policy-makers, representatives from European institutions, energy service providers, experts and other interested professionals to share their views and knowledge on how to switch to renewable energy and improve energy efficiency while creating opportunities for the local economy.
Organised in cooperation with the city of Freiburg, this event is part of a conference series launched in 2007 and explores the different sources of local renewable solutions in order to promote sustainability at a regional and local level.
Join us and explore how cities and regions can embrace clean, sustainable energy solutions, and tackle financial, planning and regulatory challenges.
