Day 7: Reducing Energy Demand; Transport, Built Environment and Industry

EnergyDays are English spoken!

The issue of 'Reducing Energy Demand; Transport, Built Environment and Industry' was presented.

The Global Energy Challenge is often focused on the necessary switch of the energy system from fossil to renewable sources, and consequences of the energy system. One has to realize, however, that in facing this challenge the need to reduce the overall energy demand in society is an as important component. This Energy Day will touch upon and discuss the possibilities to improve technology efficiencies and reduce the total energy consumption in the energy-intensive sectors transport, built environment and industry.
