Register now: Smart City - Interdisciplinary conference on solar energy and architecture

"INNOVATION IN SOLAR BUILDING SKINS & ENERGY EFFICIENCY TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE CITIES" will take place in Berlin March 19th-20th.

Experts from the construction industry, photovoltaic research field, and the financial sector will discuss innovative solutions for solar facades in combination with energy efficiency in buildings and cities in Berlin, March 19th-20th, 2018. Photovoltaics integrated into buildings represent an important component for energy-efficient cities of the future.

Online registration is open until wednesday 14th March. Students are admitted for a reduced fee.

About 75 percent of the population in Europe already lives in cities. Buildings, facades, and streets offer large surfaces that can be used to produce climate-friendly energy through photovoltaics. At the same time, buildings can also house various kinds of storage media for renewable energy and thus help stabilise the power grid.

Experts from the fields of architecture and photovoltaic research will discuss what kind of innovations are particularly promising and where there is a need for further research at this joint conference in Berlin. Economic, legal, and political aspects will also be addressed. Lecturers include renowned international experts from the fields of architecture, urban planning, and research as well as representatives from the financial sector and politics.

The European SETA network (Sustainability, Energy, Technology, Architecture) and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) invite you to the conference from March 19th-20th, 2018. The HZB is one of the leading European research institutions in the field of photovoltaics. SETA Network is active in the fields of innovation strategies for energy efficiency in buildings and cities, in solar building envelopes, renewable energies – in particular photovoltaics – and in the construction sector.  The European Technology & Innovation Platform Photovoltaics (ETIP PV) is supporting the conference.
