CTEC-Energy Transition and the City Conference

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.

Barcelona City Council is working alongside the cities of Cádiz, Madrid, Pamplona, Valencia and Zaragoza, and in collaboration with domestic and international organisations, to organise the Energy Transition and the City Conference (CTEC).

Barcelona is the host city for the CTEC, which takes place on 6 and 7 March 2019 at the Besòs campus of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, a leader in the field of energy research and innovation in the city.
