- 18.06.2012 13.30 h - 15.00 h
- Room T-10, RioCentro, Rio de Janeiro -
The Centre for Low Carbon Futures, SEI's York Centre and the University of Leeds are jointly hosting this side-event at the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
What is the most cost-effective and efficient ways to decarbonize cities? There are hundreds of options available, and although they present a significant opportunity to reduce energy bills and carbon footprints, there is often a lack of reliable information on their performance. The higher levels of risk and uncertainty that emerge can be barriers to action, making it harder to develop a business or social case for investment in low-energy options. This discussion will explore the cost and carbon effectiveness of a wide range of options for domestic, industry, commerce and transport, and potential financial and policy options to stimulate major scale investments.
Panelists will include:
Chair: Jon Price, Director, Centre for Low Carbon Futures
Dr Johan Kuylenstierna, Director, Stockholm Environment Institute –York
Dr Måns Nilsson, Research Director, Stockholm Environment Institute
Mr Walter Vergara, Divison Chief, Climate Change and Sustainability, IDB
