Local Renewables Conference 2018

Urban transformation to a Circular Economy

24 - 26 October 2018
Freiburg and Basel

The City of Freiburg, the City of Basel and ICLEI Europe will host the Local Renewables Conference 2018, which will take place on 24-26 October 2018, in Freiburg (Germany) and Basel (Switzerland).

Rising global energy needs remain a major challenge, with cities and regions being central players in making energy more secure, clean and sustainable. To transform from a linear to a circular economy there is a growing need to take advantage of renewable resources, including energy.

Some of the issues the conference will address include: how can we ensure that global energy goals, including the 2015 Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals will be reached? What is the potential of the circularity of local renewables? What transformation is needed in cities for shifting to a circular economy?

Join leading and learning cities, policy-makers from European and national governments, businesses, and research and finance institutions for the 9th edition of the Local Renewables Series. It will build on the success of previous conferences and will showcase practical and innovative examples of how to reduce energy and resource use, and make ideal use of energy sources and other resources in the region.
