Webinar: EBC Technical Day - Energy innovations for the city of tomorrow

June 24th 2020
Online

The Webinar highlighted activities of the IEA TCP ”Energy in Buildings and Communities” (EBC) as well as results from Austrian R&D projects funded within the Austrian research and technology programme “City of Tomorrow”.

Organizer

The International Technical Day was hosted by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action and organised by the Austrian Society for Environment and Technology.

Content Description

Buildings will take on a new role in future energy systems, both in connection with and through interaction with the infrastructures that provide energy. In addition to increased efficiency and a reduction of energy consumption in the building stock, new buildings must have increased flexibility, i.e. increased adaptability, to base energy consumption on the levels of energy currently available. In future, buildings, communities and entire city districts will move from being energy consumers to decentralised power plants. As plus-energy districts, they can be integrated into the energy system across sectors to ensure that production and consumption are balanced on a local level.

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Ministry for Climate Action has put together a brief webinar highlighting activities of the Technology Collaboration Programme "Energy in Buildings and Communities" (EBC) of the International Energy Agency (IEA) as well as results from Austrian R&D projects funded within the Austrian research and technology programme "City of Tomorrow". The research initiative Green Energy Lab funded by the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund will round up the program, that targets an audience coming from city (planning) administration, companies involved in building and energy research and innovation and representatives from industrial and economic associations.

The International Technical Day was hosted by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action and organised by the Austrian Society for Environment and Technology.
