IUC webinar - From a linear to a circular economy - How to start?

Organised by the International Urban Cooperation programme.

Globally cities produce 75% of the green-house gas emissions, 50% of the waste, while consuming 60–80% of the natural resources. Cities, due to the high concentration of resources over a small geographic territory, are uniquely positioned to play a crucial role and influence the reuse, recycling, recovery and upgrade of traditional waste streams. While embarking on a journey from a linear economy model of ’taking-making-disposing’, many cities focus on improving their waste management, valorising particular waste streams and preventing resources from becoming waste in the first place. While sharing their experiences, identifying challenges and recommendation, the webinar will provide inspiration on how to make your city more circular. The benefits of such transitions will also be explored as actions to increase resource efficiency can be instrumental to achieve Paris climate agreement.

Webinar - Heating and cooling planning at local level: step it up!

This webinar will present three tools, developed in close collaboration with local authorities all over Europe in order to best fit their needs: HOTMAPS, PLANHEAT and THERMOS!

Below some of the questions you could answer thanks to these tools:

  • What is the heating and cooling demand in the specific area?
  • Are the surrounding renewable and waste heat resources enough to cover the demand?
  • What are the costs of different technological solutions?
  • What would be the optimal district heating and cooling network to satisfy my planning criteria?

Webinaire : " Energiesprong : Une approche pour accélérer la rénovation énergétique"

L’approche de rénovation énergétique en série « Energiesprong » a été développée aux Pays-Bas où elle est mise en œuvre depuis 2012. Elle y a déjà permis la rénovation de 5 000 bâtiments. Le cahier des charges d’Energiesprong est exigeant : des travaux rapides – quelques semaines pour un immeuble, grâce à l’utilisation d’éléments préfabriqués, une garantie longue durée de consommation énergétique nulle, un financement par les économies sur 30 ans et pour finir un logement attractif qui correspond aux attentes des résidents.

Pour alimenter le débat, nous avons le plaisir de recevoir :
-  Estelle Derosne d’Energiesprong France
-  Julius Pahl d’Energiesprong Allemagne
Ils nous présenterons l’approche Energiesprong en détails ainsi que les projets pilotes dans les deux pays .

Le photovoltaïque en milieu urbain

Conférence organisée par l’Office franco-allemand pour la transition énergétique (OFATE)
En France comme en Allemagne, la multiplication des cadastres solaires et des initiatives en faveur du développement de l’énergie photovoltaïque en milieu urbain témoignent du rôle de premier plan qu’entendent jouer les villes dans la transition énergétique et la lutte contre le changement climatique. Parmi elles, Paris, Berlin, Bordeaux ou encore Francfort se sont engagées dès 2015, lors du Sommet des élus locaux pour le climat en marge de la COP 21, à atteindre 100 % d’énergies renouvelables d’ici 2050.
cette conférence s’intéressera avant tout aux installations sur toiture - sans pour autant délaisser le potentiel d’installations sur ombrières ou au sol. Après avoir abordé la question de la planification et du développement des centrales photovoltaïque en milieu urbain, nous aborderons ensuite les obstacles techniques en phase d’exploitation.
La manifestation s’adresse à l’ensemble des acteurs du secteur énergétique en France et en Allemagne et notamment aux développeurs de projet, exploitants, représentants d’institutions publiques, du secteur financier et de la presse. Elle aura lieu en français et en allemand avec traduction simultanée.

European Urban Resilience Forum

Organised by ICLEI - Local Govenments for Sustainability in co-operation with the European Environment Agency.

Formerly known as the Open European Day, the European Urban Resilience Forum will be organised on May 25 by back-to-back with the 10th annual ICLEI Resilient Cities Conference..

This event intends to support productive exchange between representatives from cities and regions of all sizes (both with each other and with a range of interested parties, including EU institutions, researchers and consultants). Participants are encouraged to share experiences and points of view on diverse topics, tackling existing challenges in local urban adaptation, while exploring potential solutions and opportunities for future collaboration.

The 2019 edition will build around three topical streams:

  • nature-based solutions for urban resilience,
  • multi-level governance for adaptation planning,
  • and financing resilience and adaptation.

A variety of sessions and training workshops will cover topics like exploring the co-benefits of adaptation and mitigation, social justice in adaptation actions, strategic narratives for urban heat and health or innovative schemes for municipal financing for resilience and nature based solutions.
