The conference will bring together academics, researchers, engineers, students, and industry professionals, to address and discuss the state of the art of renewable energy systems and environmental issues.
IRESE provides a platform for critical discussion in key areas related to various aspects of energy and environmental sciences.
The topics of the event contribute and propose solutions to extensive industrial, transportation, urbanisation, agriculture activities, and climate changes towards improving sustainable development and protection of our environment.
The transport sector already accounts for a quarter of global CO2 emissions, and is growing fast. The challenge, argues EIT Climate-KIC, is systemic and goes well beyond incremental technological improvements in electric vehicles and alternative fuels. In this three-part series, we outline a few of the diverse mobility-related experiments embedded in our whole systems approach to tackling climate change.
Environmental issues such as waste management, mobility, water consumption, lighting, fan environmental awareness and an environmental governance system of football associations and clubs are today the focus for making sport more sustainable. This focus is creating new opportunities.
The ‘greening of sports’ movement is still under construction, but the scaffolding is going up quickly. The challenge remains: how to further mainstream sport in European policymaking.
There are many initiatives aimed at recycling water and waste, such as turning plastic into clothes or beer cups into a fully recycled plastic football pitch.
Some may argue that this is not enough, as change should come more directly from efficient energy use or fewer greenhouse gas emissions. For example, for major events like the Olympics, air travel typically has the largest environmental impact, followed by venue construction. So where should the focus be?
UIC actively promotes at international level a multimodal vision shared with public transport and supply chain stakeholders. Based on its members’ expertise, UIC is developing the technical enablers to transform this concept into reality. In order to share the initiatives already taken and to find the ways to make modal shift desirable, UIC is pleased to invite you to a one-day conference on 13 February 2020 in Brussels. It will also be an occasion rediscover an unexpected advantage inherent to railway, the virtue of frugality.
This EPRS Briefing Seminar will explain the principles behind, and take stock of EU climate action up to now, discuss the 2030 climate and energy framework adopted in the previous legislature, and address the ambition and implementation challenges posed by the European Green Deal and the proposed European Climate Law.
In an effort to decarbonise the transport sector, the EU revised the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) in 2018. The debate is now focused on the successful implementation of the directive in EU Member States by June 2021, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas and carbon emissions in the EU transport sector.
