CITIES at the conference: 100% Climate Neutrality 30 September – 2 October 2019

Please note that CITIES – Center for IT-Intelligent Energy Systems in Cities – have a special programme on October 1 and 2 – see the details below the invitation – or at the webpage for the conference.

See the documents from the CITIES part of the conference here

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in our international conference:

The University of Southern Denmark organizes this conference as one in a series that will follow each year in collaboration with ProjectZero Sonderborg, the European University Flensburg, FH Flensburg and Klimapakt Flensburg.

This year’s climate neutrality conference focusses on new technology developments, learnings from city demonstration projects, innovative business solutions, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a climate neutrality perspective, youth participation and strategies based on what a municipality can achieve by coordinated actions and strong political alignment.

Attendees from academia, industry and municipalities are invited to share and continue their important discussion about the best practice solutions to reach their climate goals at city, regional and national levels.

Please find a list of topics below:
• Smart Cities
• Climate Neutral Energy Systems
• UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a climate neutrality perspective
• Renewable Energy
• Energy Efficiency
• Green Entrepreneurship
• Youth Conference

The 100% Climate Neutrality conference offers:
• Inspiring, innovative ideas and concepts from research, industry and municipalities challenged by Youth Climate Council representatives
• Providing solutions to make Climate Neutrality a Reality
• Excellent networking opportunities.

For more information about the program, registration, etc., please visit the 100% Climate Neutrality conference website here.

We hope you will find the time to participate and very much appreciate if you distribute the invitation to interested people.

With kind regards,

PROGRAMME FOR CITIES – Center for IT-Intelligent Energy Systems in Cities

Tuesday, 1 October
13:00 – 15:00

TRACK A1: CITIES – From Solutions to Scalable Solutions

The high densities of population, energy consumption, and energy and communications networks in cities offer a great potential for flexibility in the energy system. Cities account for 80% of global energy consumption and emissions, which makes the urban environment an ideal setting for energy systems integration research. 

CITIES is a project which pioneers research into fully integrated city energy systems, building shortterm operational models that feed longer term planning models, considering the spatiotemporal variations, interactions, dynamics and stochastics in the energy system.

The project involves leading position of European academia and industry. The conference programme will include a combination of speeches from the international project participants, European Lighthouse projects (SCC1-H2020) and industry partners in the CITIES project.
