CITIES paves the way for a fossil-free future

Okay, we admit it: We won’t be 100% fossil-free tomorrow. But it is both thought-provoking and motivating that it might be possible in theory. Just as the potential for utilising renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and biomass is enormous, there is an impressive amount of knowledge, advanced solutions, investments and best practice within each of the individual fields of energy.

What is missing is intelligent integration – and that is what we focus on in CITIES (Center for IT-Intelligent Energy Systems in cities).  In this talk we will demonstrated that intelligent integration of energy, water and transport systems in smart cities and smart societies will be key to implement solutions towards a future green and fossil free society.
