The SUSTAINABLE ENERGY day of Futuring Cities

Tuesday October 7th – from 9 am to 5 pm
46 rue Barrault, 75013 Paris

Sustainable energy will be the focus of the second scientific day of the “Futuring Cities” program dedicated to the future of cities and countries, which will take place next October 7th at IMT.

With the intensification of individuals’ consumption habits, the concentration of industry, the development of services (education, commerce, etc.) and ecological advances, we are facing a dual challenge of the depletion of energy resources and global warming. A transition is underway and will radically transform the way we live and consume as well as our energy needs and will initiate a process of adaptation to climate change. In this context cities have a role to play as they intensify and concentrate these phenomena and evolutions. This is why IMT developed this research program involving local authorities, businesses and researchers.

On this day, IMT invites attendees to see how the research conducted in its graduate schools’ laboratories can gear these evolutions to more sustainable energy consumption through the three following themes: energy efficiency, renewable energies, and smart grids.

Researchers from Mines Albi-Carmaux, Mines Alès, Mines ParisTech, Télécom Paris and Télécom SudParis will contribute to the program for the Sustainable Energy day:
