Law and policy as barriers and driving forces for sustainable energy


Event information

A noticeable trend in climate mitigation efforts is that the role of regions and cities are of increasing importance.

In this workshop, held as a part of the project Smart Cities Accelerator sponsored by Interreg ÖKS, we will look at law as a driver and barrier for new sustainable solutions in municipalities in Denmark and Sweden. The main focus is low-temperature district heating and integrating variable renewable energy and heat pumps into the energy system. Further, we will discuss the importance of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its large influence on the potential energy system optimization.
