Energy Cities Annual Rendevous: Building the Energy Transition

Start/Stop Date:
24–26 Apr 2013
Energy Cities co-organised with the City of Växjö and the Swedish network Klimatkommunerna, in collaboration with Linnaeus Univeristy
Växjö, Sweden
Focus Areas:
Renewable energy sources
Type of Event:

There are many good reasons to choose Växjö, one of the European pioneers in sustainable energy matters, as the place to discuss decentralised 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.

Energy Cities Annual Rendevous: Building the Energy Transition

This conference is a great forum to

  • LEARN: for discussion on energy objectives and actions in cities, in view of managing our energy transition;
  • NETWORK: to meet familiar faces and discover high-level speakers for a 2-day journey into local realities and visions;
  • VISIT: 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.

Information about the agenda, speakers, study tours and all practical information are available here

The city of Växjö is a member of Energy Cities’ Board of Directors. It signed the Covenant of Mayors and also actively uses the ENGAGE campaign to encourage citizens to make personal energy and climate pledges.
