PHOTOVOLTAICS | FORMS | LANDSCAPES

Designing Energies in High Density Areas

jointly with EC-JRC, ENEA, ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, Wageningen University, Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions, ECN

Day: Tuesday, 26 September 2017
Time: 08:30 - 13:00
Site: Auditorium G105, First Floor
Access: Open to all registered participants

PHOTOVOLTAICS | FORMS | LANDSCAPES is an annual event which takes place as a special side event at the series of European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition since 2011.

The topic of the event 2017 in Amsterdam has been selected taking into account the specific features of the hosting country, the Netherlands: Designing energies in high density population areas.
Concerns about land use and landscape quality influence and limit the implementation of renewable energies. This is due to some of the features of renewable energy systems, which are installed close to the urban environments, and therefore visible for citizens.
In this session, architects, landscape architects and other environmental designers/researcher are given the floor to share their ideas on how to advance the realization of energy systems while establishing aesthetic qualities in our daily living environment.

The 2017 event is co-organized by: ENEA (scientific organization) and ETA Florence (organization and promotion), with the support of the European Commission, JRC (photovoltaic technology and policies) together with Wageningen University, Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions, and ECN.
