That question will be discussed in depth at this year’s Local Renewables Conference. Taking place primarily in Freiburg, with a study tour to Basel, the theme of October’s event is Urban Transformation to a Circular Economy. 

We are media partners with the event, and will have all the build-up on these pages over the next two to three months.


“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.


The Local Renewables Conference 2018, supported by the City of Freiburg, the City of Basel and ICLEI Europe, is on from 24-26 October. Register now.
