DecarbCities: new date confirmed!

| How can we phase-out fossil fuels from the existing building stock?

The 3rd edition of DecarbCities Conference taking place on 11-12 May 2022 in Vienna, will provide a platform to present technical and organizational solutions for and from cities, showing a breadth of approaches to replace existing fossil fuel-based technologies with heating systems that use renewable energies and to reduce heat demand.

The current pandemic has shaken European Union's economies, pushing Member States to implement new instruments to guarantee stability and security. To tackle climate change, the European Union and its citizens need to redefine what energy stability and security mean. A volatile and unpredictable gas market underlines this urgency to phase-out fossil fuels from our economies. Only a combination of a reduction of the energy demand and massive deployment of local and renewable technologies ensures energy security for all. A well-planned and executed heat transition, driven by local needs and resources, and supported by national and European actors, can provide energy security for all, halt climate change and improve quality of life.

The DecarbCities conference will showcase how cities can succeed in this challenge and define clear delivery pathways for future-proof urban heating and cooling solutions. 

By bringing together energy and city policymakers and planners, building operators, social housing companies and major players of the heating and cooling industry, we will provide clear recommendations to support cities in replacing fossil fuel-based solutions and move to cleaner and renewable solutions in the heating and cooling sector.

Location: MuseumsQuartier, Vienna, Austria
