Conference

+ ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
By what processes have Munich and Austin come to be recognized as regional centers of energy innovation?
What is each doing to enhance energy performance in the built environment, and what could be improved?
Most importantly, how can this knowledge be optimized and translated to other regions?


The Energy (Ex)Change Conference seeks to answer these questions by bringing together internationally recognized leaders from both cities in a two-day exchange of ideas centered on mechanisms for implementing energy innovation at a regional level. Assuming an interdisciplinary approach, the conference centers around seven thematic panels that will facilitate meaningful discourse on the future of sustainable urban regions. Topics include: city initiatives, buildings, light, city infrastructure, envelope, materials & technology, and standards & regulations. Conference participants will both learn from, and contribute to, multi-functional and synergistic solutions.

+ WHEN / WHERE
The conference will be held in the Mebane Gallery at Goldsmith Hall, on The University of Texas at Austin campus, October 1-2, 2013.
