Date & time: 28 Nov 2016, 10:00 am-02:30 pm (CET)
Venue: RMIT Europe, Minerva 2, 08006 Barcelona, Spain
Traditionally, policymakers and researchers have focused on the techno-economic approach in assessing the impacts of energy efficient buildings (EEB). However, with sustainable energy becoming a prominent topic in recent times, there has been a growing need to widen the scope to include both social and ethical factors. This seminar brings together insights from academia and industry to shed light on reasons why society should account for human experience, activity and social practices in influencing energy consumption, and how these understandings can help plan for a sustainable future.
COMBI researcher Nora Mzavanadze will be a speaker at the seminar.
