The International Conference on Energy and Cities (ICEC) addresses energy and cities with a special emphasis on renewable energy and low carbon approaches within, and beyond, city boundaries. The Conference also covers technical and policy solutions needed to achieve energy efficiency, reduced consumption, and thermal comfort. It also feeds into the International Low Carbon City, Neighbourhood, Building Academic Alliance (IAA-LCCNB).
