Local Renewables Conference 2014
22.10. - 24.10.2014, Freiburg and Lörrach (Germany)
Regional development through energy transition
Since 2007 the Local Renewables conference series represents an international forum for discussion and exchange among policy-makers from various level of government, energy experts, energy services providers, researchers and business representatives.
Every year the Local Renewables Conference analyses a different topic linked to renewable energy such as local action for secure and sustainable energy in Europe (2007), urban policy and public planning (2009), sustainable mobility (2010), green buildings (2011) and, smart grids and smart solutions (2012).
The conference series aims to advance the switch to renewable energy sources and accelerate sustainable development. Local Renewables achieves this through showcasing ground-breaking ideas and approaches to reduce energy consumption while enhancing energy efficiency in cities and towns.
To meet the challenges posed by the ongoing economic crisis, growing energy instability and resource scarcity, an urgent shift to sustainable economies is needed. The 6th Local Renewables Conference puts particular emphasis on the key role of the local level, the importance of renewable energy and improving energy efficiency within this shift
