Food for thought during the EU Sustainable Energy Week: 5 days, 5 key topics, 5 lunch academy webinars
Across five, 45-minute sessions, energy agencies, academics, policy makers and leading associations will share real-life experience and challenges on key topics: Finance, Citizen Engagement, Retrofitting, District heating & Cooling and Replicating success.

Each session, an “expert challenger” from organisations like BPIE, Climate Alliance, Euroheat & Power, EngageCitizen and the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP), will dig a deeper into the issues raised by speakers and stimulate questions.

If you are concerned by smarter and more energy efficient cities, learn from leading cities and organisations what they got right; what they got wrong; how you can be even more successful.

Content is entirely free, sign up now and discover key tips and insight on how others are dealing with these challenging topics.
