75% of EU citizens are living in cities today whereas at the same time the demand for energy is growing - cities belong to the main CO2 emission sources. One of the crucial future questions is how to find suitable measures to make our cities more energy efficient. How can we make sure that our cities will be and remain sustainable places to live in?

The PLEEC project (Planning for energy efficient cities) - funded by the EU-Seventh Framework Programme – has now been working for three years on these issues: 18 partners from 13 European countries are collaborating to make European cities more energy efficient.

On 8 March 2016 the PLEEC´s Final Conference „PLANNING FOR ENERGY EFFICIENT CITIES – how to achieve the Sustainable Energy Smart City” will present the latest research findings on sustainable city planning and energy efficiency.
Members of the PLEEC partner consortium will showcase the results achieved within the PLEEC project and share their experiences on how to plan for the Energy Smart City. Meet our university experts and smart city partners and take part in discussing future paths of sustainable development!

The PLEEC Final Conference will take place on 8 March 2016 from 14 – 17.30 hrs in the venues of HafenCity University Hamburg (Überseeallee 16, 20457 Hamburg)

The event will be organized in the framework of the International Conference of Sustainable Built Environment - SBE 16 in Hamburg. SBE Hamburg showcases new and innovative concepts of sustainability in the building sector and the sustainable development of new as well as existing neighborhoods. Under the theme “Strategies, Stakeholders, Success Factors” SBE16 Hamburg expects to attract around 400 scientists, planners, stakeholders, architects, engineers and politicians from all over the world.
