Sat, Sept. 19, 2015: Workshop "Cities in Energy Transition" in Lyon
The Institut d’Asie Orientale and Triangle, both Université de Lyon, and the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies will host a Joint Workshop in Lyon:
Cities in Energy Transition
Comparative Analysis of Policies and Strategies in Europe and Asia
Date: Saturday, September 19, 2015, 10.00 h
Venue: Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, Site Descartes, Room R066, Lyon
Linked to climate change imperatives, the energy transition is nowadays on the agenda in Europe as well as in Asia. National, regional or local policies are being implemented to fix objectives or support actors involved in action. Cities are expected to implement innovative projects (energy management, transport etc.) to achieve their objectives. Companies are requested to test new technologies or services (smart-grids, Evs, etc.) while citizens are supposed to change their behavior accordingly (energy consumption, mobility).
The workshop will first introduce the energy transition in France and Germany to serve as a reference, then it will focus on Asia, taking different approaches and/or based on cases experimented in Japan and China. Hopefully a comparative perspective will come out from discussion.
