Following the success of the previous IEECB conferences we are pleased to announce the ninth International Conference on Improving Energy Efficiency in Commercial Buildings and Smart Communities (IEECB&SC’16) jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt and the European Commission DG JRC.

Potential authors are invited to submit abstracts. Read more about the topics (indicative lists) and how to submit your abstract (pdf). Abstracts are due 15 November 2015

The IEECB&SC’16 conference will take place on 16-18 March 2016 in Frankfurt during Light+Building, the world’s leading trade fair for Architecture and Technology, 13-18 March 2016, in Frankfurt, Germany. Light+Building integrates the sectors related to building design – light, electrical engineering as well as home and building automation – at one trade fair. Integrated planning approaches and systems-linking interaction of various technical trades are no longer just a vision but a growing reality. Light+Building does justice to this with its unique international scope by presenting the subject in its entire breadth and depth. From investors to architects and engineers, up to specialist planners, process workers and operators, Light+Building is the number one industry event in 2016 for all experts involved in the conception, planning and management of buildings.

The IEECB&SC conference seeks to bring together all the key players from this sector, including commercial buildings’ investors and property managers, academia, building technologies researchers, equipment manufacturers, service providers (ESCOs, utilities, facilities management companies), urban planner and policy makers, with a view to exchange information, to learn from each other and to network.

The wide scope of topics covered during the IEECB&SC’16 conference includes: smart building and low energy buildings, (Nearly) Net Zero Energy Buildings, equipment and systems (lighting, HVAC auxiliary equipment, ICT & office equipment, miscellaneous equipment, BEMS, electricity on-site production, renewable energies, etc.), smart and sustainable communities and the latest advances in energy efficiency programmes, regulation & policies for commercial buildings and smart communities.

In particular the conference aims to attract property investors, architects, and urban planners to present and discuss synergies and cooperation in removing existing barriers to energy efficiency and smart buildings, as well as the importance of public buildings as showcase example for energy efficiency solutions and practices.

The IEECB&SC conference aims at attracting high level papers presenting new technologies, techniques, services, policies, programmes and strategies to increase energy efficiency, energy savings and to reduce greenhouse gases emissions in non-residential buildings and communities.
