Barbara Saringer-Bory presented guidance recommendations in the field of smart cities. Bernd Schuh reported on the current EU regional policy and its support on the development of regional infrastructure for renewable energy; he presented the findings from the study “Infrastructure for renewable energies: a factor of local and regional development” for the European Parliament (see details above). About 20 participants discussed about the issue of energy infrastructure and the necessity of urban-country-visions, taking into account the interest of our descendants.
