An increasing share of humans live in cities. This trend requires no-pollution solutions to maintain local air quality, reduce the effect of heat islands and provide the fair share of cities in the fight against global warming.

In Session 1 representatives of proactive cities will explain how they have dealt with the most prevailing challenges (or are planning to do so). The participating representatives have already made big steps in the energy transition and are close in setting best practice examples for other cities to follow.

Session 2 will discuss the challenges from a planning perspective: how can the quest for zero emission cities be modelled and which tools are available to monitor execution over time. City planners and researchers will present what is feasible and may also elaborate on tools they wish they had at their disposal.

Session 3 will shed light into progressive and innovative projects which prove that any challenge can be solved with the use of sustainable and smart tools that move away from the use of fossil fuels and combustion.

The Heat Pump KEYMARK is one of the sponsors of the event and the Keymark scheme will be presented during the EHPA General Assembly on the 16th of May in Vienna.
