6 June 2018
Brussels

Do you want to shape the future of energy in Europe ? Are you interested in the impact of "Smart cities" solutions on citizens? Join RUGGEDISED in a policy session organised during the European Sustainable Energy week (EUSEW) on: "The contribution of energy smart solutions to social cohesion in cities".

Lighthouse cities are leading the transition to a sustainable future with innovative solutions, in great part related to energy. These (potentially disruptive) changes have very direct effects on citizens: on their living conditions, the price of energy, the planning of neighbourhoods, the creation of new skilled jobs.

This session will look at the impact of smart energy solutions on social cohesion through the experience and best practices of European projects. From the planning to the implementation of smart energy solutions, the session will propose ideas to think and integrate the impact of these measures on citizens.

This session will address questions such as: What social benefits do energy-related solutions have in smart districts? How can people afford these new technologies ? What solutions can digitalisation and data collection offer ? How does it affect the quality of life of citizens, both at home and at work? How can people participate in /take ownership of these new smart solutions ?

Experiences of Lighthouse cities projects will give perspectives on the implementation of smart districts in cities such as Glasgow, Umeå and Florence.
