The international workshop will look at energy issues including energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in historical towns as part of global sustainability in the use of energy sources.

Energy is increasingly at the core of global sustainability and climate change mitigation discussions. As energy demand continues to grow, the ability to address energy issues, including energy access, efficiency, and renewable energy sources, will be paramount in enabling development and climate change priorities to be met in a mutually reinforcing way.
