The upcoming 14 and 15 of December will take place in Valladolid (Castilla y León, Spain) the seminar “Urbanism and energy transition: spatial design strategies for a sustainable city”, within the framework of the European project INTENSSS-PA, and organized by the two Spanish partners of the consortium, la Dirección General de Vivienda, Arquitectura y Urbanismo de la Junta de Castilla y León (JCyL) and the Instituto Universitario de Urbanística de la Universidad de Valladolid.

This seminar is developed as Learning Sessions within the development of the Regional Living Lab of Castilla y León in the process of elaboration of the Integrated Sustainable Energy Plan, and that will have three thematic sessions. These three panels will be focused on ecological and environmental planning, Renewable solutions through European innovative projects, and sustainable holistic planning. In addition, as part of the seminar, the RLL will present the work of the INTENSSS-PA project and its progress so far.

The energy transition can be understood as the step from the predominance of fossil fuels to their substitution by renewable energy sources. Based on this consideration, it must be resolved essentially in the cities, since they mainly concentrate energy consumption: air conditioning, transport, heating etc. The achievement of the Low Carbon Cities model is undoubtedly one of the great challenges of cities in the coming years within the framework of the global fight against climate change.  Urban planning, special planning, is a key instrument to achieve this goal. The seminar “Urbanism and energy transition: spatial design strategies for a sustainable city” aims to reflect and discuss possible design strategies that contribute to a more sustainable city, not only from the energy point of view, but also social, etc. The different presentations will propose mechanisms and references to guide the fulfilment of these objectives, will expose cases and good practices, etc., from an interdisciplinary and integrated perspective.
