The SmartEnCity Network invites you to the SmartEnCity Network Workshop Day in Cagliari, Italy – on 5th June 2019, 9:00 – 13:00 CET.

The Network Workshop Day will focus on the experiences our Lighthouse Cities have working with Integrated Energy Planning – a SmartEnCity based concept that will be introduced to you along with a knowledge transfer session presenting the City Information Open Platform – another main result of and developed within SmartEnCity project – an innovative online platform, ready to be applied in order to manage the big data of a smart city. This way your city can directly benefit from the project’s outcomes and start its own journey towards a Smart Zero Carbon City.

Joining the Network Workshop Day will enable you not only to learn, understand and discuss the Integrated Energy Planning concepts and methods with our SmartEnCity experts and Lighthouse and Follower Cities, but also to assess where is your city in this process and how can you start or boost your Smart Zero Carbon City Transition!

Do not miss this chance! You could be the next Smart Zero Carbon City! Benefit from this first-hand experience and get support on your way towards a sustainable future – and all this is free of charge.

Build Upon²: launches the Italian cluster for building renovation initiatives in cities

5th June 2019, GBC Italia

The workshop aims at collecting experiences from European projects, initiatives and researches related to building renovation actions in cities, to start clustering a community of stakeholders in Italy to help implement the EU’s goal of decarbonising it’s building stock by 2050. The “Framework” being developed can be integrated into the Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans, undersigned within the Covenant of Mayors, enhancing coordination across local, regional and national authorities. The workshop aims at sharing and disseminating projects and actions that cities are developing to reduce energy consumption and renovate the building stock, to face climate change, to manage resources and materials and to assess the related impacts.

The workshop is public and open to all SP19 attendees, the idea is to create a cluster of European projects, initiatives and researches that deal with the identified topic, and a cluster of Italian and European cities that will be interested in assessing economic, environmental and social impacts of initiatives at district and urban scale. Participants interested to present a contribution and /or a paper for the conference should do so by 10 May, and are invited to send an email to to benefit for a discount on the conference registration fee by a special code for GBC Italia’s attendees.
