11.50 – INSPIRING WORKSHOPS

How can you accelerate the energy transition? During the workshops, different speakers will inspire you with their insights and concrete examples in concise introductions. Subsequently, you will have the opportunity to ask them your questions during an interactive discussion.

You can choose between 5 different workshops:

  1. Paths to accelerating the energy transition in urban areas
  2. Paths to deep decarbonisation in industry
  3. Paths Finance and investor perspectives on zero carbon energy
  4. Technology roadmaps for accelerating the transition to zero carbon energy
  5. Start-Up Workshop

 

Paths to accelerating the energy transition in urban areas

  • Challenges for the energy transition in the built environment
  • Best practices and learnings from existing European and USA city projects

RSM moderator:
Tobias Brandt, Assistant Professor of Business Information Management, RSM

 

Speakers:
Energy transition can facilitate the Triumph of the city

  • Energy transition brings opportunities, such as economy of scale, combination of works and synergy (e.g. improve neighbourhoods for transport, parking, safety, social cohesion etc)
  • This triumph of the energy transition is only possible if we work together, share costs & benefits and take responsibility
  • House owners are not responsible for the transition towards more (energy) sources with lower emissions. House owners are ‘transition ready’ when they have insulated houses and are connected to an energy grid other than natural gas (e.g. electricity or district heating).
