Day 2: Saving Energy; Changing Habits

03 December 2015

EnergyDays are English spoken!

The issue of 'Saving Energy; Changing Habits' was presented.

Our Western lifestyle requires a lot of energy. Next to make our energy supply system more sustainable by using energy from the sun, wind and water, we also should look critically at our consumption patterns. However, in the last few decades efforts to change our behavior have not been very successful yet. Why this is so difficult, what we have learned and what we can do about it, is the theme of this EnergyDays. The invited speakers addressed this from different perspectives.
