Urban areas require an uninterrupted supply of energy, consuming 75% of global primary energy. While minimizing the ecological footprint of cities, energy distribution needs to become sustainable, more inclusive and fair.
Innoasis Urban Energy Lab is a co-creation space and platform for developing tomorrow’s renewable, energy efficient and distributed energy system. We envision a future where cities will be able to produce a significant amount of their own energy using renewable energy sources such as solar, geothermal, and wind while drastically reducing energy needs through energy-saving measures. We also explore news forms of organisation, finance, and ownership of the urban energy systems of tomorrow.
The launch of Innoais Urban Energy Lab is an important step in connecting the public sector, industry, citizen groups, academia in developing the urban energy systems of the future. Join us for this launch event to learn more.
