Energy Cities' Annual Conference #mayors2015 - Come and meet Transformation Cities!

The harbour cities of Aberdeen (UK) and Dunkirk (France) have undertaken amibitous transformation. They will share their plans, aims and doubts at Energy Cities’ Conference next April.

For Energy Cities, the energy transition is a shift from a system dominated by finite (fossil and fissile) energy towards a (renewable) flow energy-based system. Such a shift requires simultaneously taking ambitious actions to reduce our energy use. It is our century’s challenge. This kind of transition requires profound changes in the way we live and work. No person acting alone can bring about such change. To help set this change in motion in Aberdeen, a group came together to explore possible pathways towards living sustainably.

The economy of this Scottish sea port has been entirely relying on the oil industry since the late 1970s. With oil prices having dramatically felt last summer, the city is experiencing its worse crisis in 40 years. So Aberdeen has undertaken a "Journey Towards 2050" that will be presented to participants in Energy Cities’ Annual Conference 2015 during the session "Transformation Cities".

The city of Dunkirk (third-largest harbour in France) has engaged in a similar transition process. As an industrial city it depends heavily on the steel, food processing, oil-refining, ship-building and chemical industries.

Aberdeen and Dunkirk will share their experience and discuss with conference participants on how they see their future and how they expect to get there.
