Join us for the pinnacle event of the #BUCPUA Fall Learning Enrichment Series, co-hosted by the Institute for Sustainable Energy and The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future. Rob Thornton, President & CEO of the International District Energy Association (IDEA) and partner in the United Nations Environment Program Sustainable Energy for All District Energy Initiative will outline how cities around the globe from Copenhagen to Dubai, Paris to Boston are investing in district energy thermal heating and cooling networks to enhance resource efficiency, conserve fuel and water, and strengthen energy resiliency for local economies. City leaders have recognized that heating and cooling buildings represents a significant opportunity to optimize efficiency, utilize local and sustainable energy supplies and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This lecture will explore the shifting utility paradigm from central station generation to more distributed solutions; discuss planning approaches for energy mapping and investment strategies and share illustrative case examples of highly successful district energy systems as strategic foundation for more sustainable cities. ALL ARE WELCOME!
