Webinar 27/8: The role of renewable energy in post COVID-19 public spaces

Webinar 27/8: The role of renewable energy in post COVID-19 public spaces

Thursday August 27, 2.00 – 3.30pm CET
This webinar is part of the initiative ’2020: A Year without Public Space under the COVID-19 Pandemic’.

Research into energy transition from carbon to renewable energy sources points to the importance, and possible conflicts, of enlarging the footprint of renewable energy generators into the public space. The future planning of our cities will require a greater sensibility to the integration and occupation of space by ever more present PV panels, microturbines, etc. At the same time, the experience of the COVID 19 pandemic has exacerbated the pressures about the use of public space by introducing a new concept in our design approach: “the physical distancing”. This means that the design thinking process has to deal at once with the triple issue of making public space accessible to all while generating energy for the public and be of support for the new physical distancing requirements for the businesses. We would like to discuss how integrated urban design with renewable energy systems can contribute to re-imaging the future public space.
