18-20 April – EnergyCities (Rennes, FRANCE) 


Our zero-carbon future is built through partnerships that are wide-ranging, both in scope and scale.

They will have to be forged between and within territories, between urban and rural areas, between city administration and citizens, between national and local governments, so as to create truly local alliances. Cities and regions beautifully capture what the European Union needs to be more: democratic, sovereign and united:

Democratic because good urban transformation and local energy policy involves all stakeholders. Sovereign, because innovative local development will be based on local resources; United, because cities connecting with each other, with their rural surroundings and with different other governance levels make up for a collaborative European territory.

In 2018 in Rennes, the flagship event of our network is meant to power those partnerships with people and ideas.

Agenda (20 April) 9:15-10:15 – The role of blockchain in the energy transition of cities Markos A. Romanos, Energy & Sustainability Engineer, Pylon Network COO (ES)
