Växjö, as one of the European pioneers in sustainable energy matters, is the ideal place to discuss decentralized energy solutions. The city’s ambitious 2011 energy action plan, its outstanding sustainable housing constructions, its long tradition of using renewable energy sources and polygeneration will be concrete illustrations of a low energy city with a high quality of life for all.
This conference is a great forum for discussion on energy objectives and actions in cities, in view of managing our energy transition. Meet familiar faces and discover high-level speakers for a 2-day journey into local realities and visions.
Don’t miss the chance to have a glance of Sweden’s largest newly constructed wooden houses or of Växjö’s first small-scale urban windmill during one of the site visits organised in the framework of our conference!
The city of Växjö, member of Energy Cities’ Board of directors, has signed the Covenant of Mayors and also actively uses the ENGAGE campaign to encourage citizens to make personal energy and climate pledges.
