The Energy Transition and the City Conference (CTEC) aims at highlighting the role of cities in promoting energy transition and sovereignty.The CTEC also seeks to generate a debate around the city-energy pairing between all the stakeholders involved: citizens and civil society, the cities’ political and technical representatives, the public authorities, academia, the business sector and so on.
The conference features some eighty speakers, hailing from twenty cities from Spain and abroad, who will be sharing their transformational experiences, generating a space for forging alliances and synergies for advancing towards transition.
