Annually, the International Women4Energy Conference gives women, who are active in the energy sector, insights on global energy challenges and information about future trends as well as market needs. The participants are gathering on this occasion to expand their network by getting in touch with female experts in science and entrepreneurship in all energy-related fields.

This year, the conference focuses on new solutions for citizen engagement and for prosumers in the fields of Energy, New Power Management and Optimisation, and New Mobility and Logistics in Energy. The conference will feature interesting speakers and insights on energy-related trends and best practices in citizen engagement, power generation and consumption, and mobility and logistics.

That’s Barcelona Smart City Expo World Congress as we know it!

From 19-21 November, Triangulum participated in this year’s Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. We were there together with the Smart City initiatives European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) and Smart Cities Information System (SCIS) as well as the other now 16 Horizon 2020 European Smart Cities and Communities Lighthouse projects.

At our joint Smart Cities and Communities stand, overall 14 engaging presentations were given. As one of the first three ending projects, Triangulum of course had a lot to tell! So we particiapted in two workshop sessions at the stand to talk about our experiences from five years of Triangulum: Gerd Seehuus, City Coordinator of Stavanger from Stavanger Kommune spoke as part of “Nordic Lighthouse Cities – Smart, bold and collaborative”.

Joe Rees from University of Manchester, one of our monitoring and evaluation experts, Sonja Stöffler from University of Stuttgart and replication expert at Triangulum, Gerd Seehuus from Stavanger Kommune, Oriol Llevot, City Coordinator of our Follower City Sabadell and of course, our Project Coordinator Trinidad Fernandez of Fraunhofer IAO discussed “Impacts beyond the projects”.

Further highlights at the stand were the presentation “A Mission to Deliver the Cities of the Future” organised by EIP-SCC, with Emmanuel Forest (Executive Vice-President European and Institutional Affairs, Bouygues Group & Mission Board member), Albert Engels (Project Coordinator of RUGGEDISED), Graham Colclough (Chair of the EIP-SCC Action Cluster on Integrated Infrastructures & part of SharingCities) and moderated by Georg Houben (EC, DG Energy, Smart Cities & Communities). Key findings were a better understanding of the EC’s mission concept with its aim to make Europe the first climate neutral continent by tackling the challenge in the urban context. The current idea is to create 100 climate-neutral Smart Cities by 2030, serving as testbeds and blueprints for at least ten times more cities in the future in order to push Europe to become climate-neutral by 2050.

In addition to the joint European Smart Cities and Communities Lighthouse projects stand, three so-called Agora Sessions were organised in the exhibition space covering various Smart City areas and including valuable input from Triangulum.

The first topic “From Dream to Reality: Impact of Lighthouse Projects on Cities” covered Triangulum, together with the other two soon-to-end projects GrowSmarter and REMOURBAN, showcasing the impact that the solutions had on our cities.

The second session “The Journey: from Nearly Zero Energy Neighbourhood to Positive Energy Districts” covered the evolution from nZEBs to PEDs, illustrated by project cases from REMOURBAN, mySMARTLife, MAKING-CITY and +CityxChange.

The final Agora Session “Europe 2030: What is next for Smart Cities and Communities? explored the debate on the future of Smart Cities and Communities, showcasing policy aspects as well as concrete results and packaging approach for replication and upscaling.
