Local Renewables Conference 2014

Local Renewables Conference 2014 will take place from 22nd – 24th October 2014 in Freiburg and Lörrach in Germany. The 6th Local Renewables Conference will focus on the importance of renewable energy and the key role that local government can play in the move towards sustainable economies.

This conference will provide the opportunity for policy-makers from various levels of government, as well as experts from energy utilities, business and research to:

• Exchange on how cities and regions can optimise collaboration with local stakeholders such as business, civil society and academia;
• Evaluate the potential of technological innovations and integration including e.g. solar cooling, waste-to-energy and water-food-energy nexus solutions;
• Analyse cost-benefits and financing options (public and private sources) for local action, and ways of developing meaningful financial partnerships.
