Tours

Renewable energy tours are a key element of the conference programme, at both the start and the end of the conference. Multiple study tours will be organised to show interesting and innovative sustainable energy solutions in practice. These tours will showcase successful examples of renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy conservation initiatives in the Green City and Solar Region of Freiburg. The conference programme reflects and contextualizes these tours from a European perspective.  All conference participants are provided the opportunity to participate in two of the offered tours.
