Constructing Buildings and Energy Grids in Energy Efficient Ways

Cities, Energy, Create,

Constructions and the energy grid itself are two key players in polluting our environment. Both are kind of grand problems to take on. But it seems like with the use of new technologies and good old community building solutions are in the making.

Marwa will share her work on how buildings can be affordable, low impact and climate responsive, both when they’re built and in use.

Pierre-Eloun will talk about how the recent development of solar, battery, EV and blockchain technologies can be combined to create new forms of local p2p energy energy markets of prosumers.
