The SmartEnCity webinars present practical experiences, challenges and learnings from actual city transition processes and provide tangible knowledge and ideas for how to approach the zero-carbon transition of cities. In total, there are 6 webinars (#6 is a bonus webinar) covering various topics to help municipal planners or other key stakeholders in the transition to a zero-carbon community. The goal for the webinars is to give you a better understanding of the methodologies, tools, and solutions used in SmartEnCity to address the common challenges of a transition to a zero-carbon city through the lens of those who applied them in their communities.

The theme for each lesson is outlined below:

  • Webinar 1: Strategic Energy Planning in countries and cities.
  • Webinar 2: Facilitating energy transition at city level.
  • Webinar 3: Empower your city transition – Citizen engagement learnings from European municipalities.
  • Webinar 4: Energy Retrofitting of Buildings – Cost effective energy transition and learnings from European municipalities.
  • Webinar 5: Low Carbon Mobility.
  • Additional webinar: Creation of Energy Efficient Buildings Renovation Action Plans for cities: guideline and application cases.
