EU Sustainable Energy Week presence for Connected Urban Development


­Under the umbrella of the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign (SEE), the European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport, the European Institutions and major stakeholders concerned with sustainable energy are organizing the third edition of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW)­.

The forum will take place in Brussels, Belgium, and in other cities across Europe from Monday 9 to Friday 13 Februa­ry 2009.

The EUSEW is the key annual reference point for sustainable energy issues in Europe. The events organised during EUSEW cover key topics that highlight the multi-sectoral nature of sustainable energy development and stress the need for everyone to work together towards a common goal.

The Connected Urban Development initiative has been chosen as a Benchmark of Excellence by the EU Covenant of Mayors consortium. As part of this recognition, the Connected Urban Development partners have been invited to participate in the Sustainable Energy Week.

The cities of Amsterdam, Birmingham, Hamburg, Lisbon and Madrid as well as Cisco are pleased to invite interested parties to a Connected Urban Development session within the Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels, on February 11th 2009.

The Connected Urban Development half day session will be focused on the approaches and proof of concept models implemented by the Connected Urban Development partner cities, as well as the technology architectures which will enable a connected and sustainable urban future.
