Sustainability targets and climate change objectives cannot be met without addressing buildings and the built environment at the building, district and urban scale to include our transport and energy infrastructures.

The 8th edition of Sustainable Places (SP2020) features the following specific topics: Circular Economy, Digital Twins, BIPV–Buildings Integrated Photovoltaics, Local Energy Communities, Sustainable Digital Infrastructure.

12 projects from the RHC field are preparing a workshop on Renewable Heating and Cooling Solutions for buildings and industry. The workshop will include: The presentation of the latest publication of the European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling – RHC ETIP, 2050 Vision for 100% renewable heating and cooling in Europe; and a selection of H2020 EU-funded projects involving experts from the biomass, geothermal, solar thermal and heat pump sectors to discuss a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling for buildings and industry.
