Smarter is cleaner - EUSEW policy session

22 June 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Nine smart city projects funded under the Smart Cities and Communities (SCC1) Horizon 2020 funding programme will contribute to the ICLEI coordinated "Smarter is cleaner" policy session on 22 June from 16.00 - 17.30.

The session will focus on the replication potential of the energy-related smart solutions implemented in leading cities. These projects represent a total of 27 advanced cities and 30 learning cities, working to build up a catalogue of experience and techniques that can be applied in other cities across Europe.

The aim of this joint event is to equip other cities with the knowledge to put these technological solutions into practice. The session will look closely at smart solutions in three areas: smart grids, smart electric storage, and industrial to civic prosumers.

The projects will also be present on 21 June at the EUSEW Networking Village. City and business representatives are available to meet at the smart city project stand from 14.00 to 17.30.

How economic and social actors can champion CO2 phase-out - EUSEW policy session

22 June 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Projects funded under the Horizon 2020 funding programme will contribute to the DG Research and Innovation & EASME coordinated policy session on 'How economic and social actors can champion CO2 phase-out' which will take place on 22 June from 16.00 - 17.30 at Résidence Palace (Salle Maelbeek).

Description: Greenhouse gas emissions will need to rapidly fall from now to 2050 if we are to keep the European and global economy on a track consistent with the Paris Agreement. Incremental gains in energy or production efficiency will not provide the necessary emission reductions, while the profound transformation required will put the whole economy, and some sectors especially, in front of a great challenge.

Lowering emission caps or an ever increasing carbon price will challenge innovators, redefine competitiveness and may have a restructuring effect on markets.

Can deep decarbonisation pathways be reconciled with the political objectives of reinvigorating European industries and strengthening economic competitiveness?

What does science have to say about the risks and opportunities related to innovation, deployment, financing or public acceptance?
