Publication type: Conference proceedings
Introduction:WREC 2011 focused on Future Trends and Applications in Renewable Energy Technologies and Sustainable Development. The topic Sustainable Cities and Regions covered subjects such as:

  • Infrastructures for low energy use
  • Sustainable energy use in cities and regions
  • Local level sustainable energy use
  • Energy conservation programs in cities
  • Urban environments: masterplanning and infrastructure
  • Status of renewable energies - regionally; locally
