Building the energy transition
Event: Within a city’s scope in action, buildings are the most visible and tangible sector in which the local energy transition shapes us. They are not mere objects, but are part of a bigger urban, environmental, transport, economic and social picture. This 2-days high-level event in Växjö, a pioneer in sustainable energy, will bring you closer to new ways of thinking and doing. Nearly two decades ago, elected people from all political sections unanimously decided to make Växjö ‘100 per cent fossil fuel free’! Don’t miss the site visits and discover what many described at the time as a stroke of madness was actually an act of genius!
