Did you know that the majority of governmental buildings in Berlin, in addition to the whole governmental district, were built using advanced renewable technologies and are highly sustainable and energy efficient? If not, then join us to gain unique insight into sustainable urban planning and the construction of some of the most significant buildings and areas in Berlin.
Forecasts show that two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities by the year 2050. As a result, demand for energy and private transportation is set to increase exponentially – and pollution will rise accordingly. Are real significant changes within cities foreseeable? What solutions can really make a change? Can sectors such as agriculture or energy crossover be integrated into modern and future living environments? To see both small and large-scale urban solutions that may have an immense impact on our future, join us on this tour!
The day after the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue, the URBAN ENERGY FORUM takes place for the third time. Together with international experts from the energy sector, we will discuss the opportunities and developments of future trends and technologies related to the urban energy transition.
The one-day conference is aimed at decision-makers from companies, the public sector and science, who are involved in their daily work on urban energy transition.
We expect around 150 guests from Berlin, Germany and around the world. The venue is the Hotel de Rome near the Federal Foreign Office. Participation is free of charge. Registration via the event website is required.
The forum will offer extensive networking opportunities in an exclusive business lounge. All participants are asked to create a company profile in a matchmaking tool and to get in touch with potential partners.
With the tool, participants can make individual appointments with the other participants before or during the event via password-protected intranet access.
The forum is organized by the Berlin-Brandenburg Energy Network and is funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises and by European Regional Development Funds from the European Union. Further information on the forum at www.urbanenergyforum.com.
Pivotal to a successful energy transition is a switch from conventional and centralised energy generation to a decentralised system dominated by renewable energy generation and supporting technologies. But how does such a system work and what does it look like? To find out, join us on an excursion to one of the frontrunners in the renewable energy world.
