As the focal points for future growth, demographic changes and innovation, cities play an essential part in developing our capacity and capability for sustainable energy transitions. Planning for sustainable energy systems and fostering a smart and efficient management of natural resources requires a regional/metropolitan approach to effect systemic shifts and a lasting societal change in attitude.

The ESEIA ISS 2014 programe was aimed at covering fundamental aspects and at revealing solutions in the quest for smart innovations to the energy challenge facing cities, metropolitan and regional centres, and communities. This Summer School offered participants the possibility to push their project on major topics related to zero emission cities of tomorrow. Top scientists and practitioners helped them develop well-structured projects that students could further use for building up a funding proposal.
