UTM teams up with IRENA to deliver 9 trainings on renewable energy technologies for cities

The Urban Transitions Mission (UTM) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) are hosting over the period from February 14th to June 19th of this year, a series of 9 training and knowledge-exchange sessions focused on renewable energy technologies and their vital applications within urban energy systems.

The program, divided into three modules, each consisting of three sessions of 90 minutes, is dedicated to urban energy planners, infrastructure managers, and urban planning officials, as well as experts from local energy agencies and municipally owned companies that support the UTM cities in their energy transition. The program comprises:

Module I: Distributed renewable power generation systems
  • Session 1: Understanding distributed electric power generation systems in the context of urban energy transition (14 February)
  • Session 2: Focus on Solar Photovoltaics – PV (21 February)
  • Session 3: Other renewable power technologies for cities (28 February)
Module II: Buildings energy performance
  • Session 1: Building energy efficiency (10 April)
  • Session 2: Renewable energy for heating in buildings (17 April)
  • Session 3: Heat pumps (24 April)
Module III: Sustainable mobility in urban environment
  • Session 1: Mobility VS transportation (5 June)
  • Session 2: Electric vehicles (eV) and charging infrastructure (12 June)
  • Session 3: Other low-carbon transportation options (19 June)

To ensure accessibility across different time zones, all sessions will take place between 13:30 and 15:00 CET. 

During the sessions, UTM cities and city participants will be encouraged to share their experiences, perspectives, and interesting user cases to be presented and discussed. Cities will also be invited to share their doubts and questions before each session to be addressed by experts live during the exchange.
