This Conference, hosted by ICLEI EUROPE is taking place in Freiburg im Breisgau and Lörrach, Germany on 22-24 October 2014
To comprehensively tackle the ongoing economic crisis, growing energy instability and increased resource scarcity a shift to more sustainable economies is urgently required. The 6th Local Renewables Conference, set to take place in Freiburg im Breisgau and Lörrach (Germany), will explore the key role of local governments in this transition, and explore ways to improve renewable energy use and energy efficiency.
Cities are increasingly looking to make the best use of their regions’ available resources, and are moving beyond consumption to replenishment and production of energy. Questions remain on how to effectively steer and facilitate this transition. Local Renewables 2014 will examine the tools and integrated approaches necessary to efficiently exploit energy opportunities, as well as looking at the potential for local job creation. The conference is specifically tailored to be of benefit to local government leaders.
