The first International Summers School took place the last 6th, 7th and 8th of June in Barcelona.

Over three days and in the hands of outstanding speakers, the aim of this Summer School was to advance the analysis of the role of Smart Cities in the achievement of the objectives of sustainability and the improvement in the living conditions of their citizens, emphasizing the future prospects of Smart Grids. Technological, economic and policy challenges were discussed when defining effective policies for urban energy transition.

The event was organized in three sessions of one day each. The first session, about Smart Grids, gave attendees the possibility of knowing the challenges associated with the deployment of these networks. The second session was dedicated to Smart Cities and allowed attendees to focus on the diversity of aspects presented under this concept of city in sustainable urban development. Finally, the third session was an open High-Level Conference that was addressed the effective policies for urban energy transition. It analyzed the role of public actors in guiding this urban transition towards sustainable development and in the specific Smart Cities projects in the SUDOE region. This Conference was presented by Arcadio Gutiérrez from ENERCLUB.

The attendees at the end of the day had the opportunity to visit the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research
