URBAN ENERGY FORUM 2018
SECTOR COUPLING FOR SMARTER CITIES
The Urban Energy Forum 2018 (UEF) will discuss the current issues regarding the energy transition in urban environments at an international level during this year’s Berlin Energy Week. The 4th Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue 2018, which is hosted by the Federal Foreign Office two days prior to the Forum is a good segway to this international B2B-conference, which will focus on „Sector Coupling for Smarter Cities“.
International and Berlin-based businesses and experts are invited to come together to review the latest trends of sector integration in urban environments. Key players of current project implementation schemes will share their expertise by presenting barriers, solutions and potentials for sector coupling and discuss these further in panel discussions. The UEF will provide extensive B2B – networking opportunities in an exclusive business lounge.
