We are doing a bit of a weekend roundup and shout out to the events we media partner with.

And the Local Renewables Conference in Freiburg and Basel is one of those, with a 2018 theme of Urban transformation to a circular economy.

“Join leading and learning cities, policy-makers from European and national governments, businesses, research and finance institutions for the 9th edition of the Local Renewables Series. It will build on the success of previous conferences and will showcase practical and innovative examples of how to reduce energy and resource use, and make ideal use of energy sources and other resources in the region,” the event website states.

Early bird tickets are on sale until 1 August for the conference, which takes place from 24 to 26 October.
