EU-GUGLE: A Sustainable Renovation for Smarter Cities from a Pilot project
In November 2015, leaders of the EU-GUGLE pilot cities presented plans to make their cities more sustainable and energy efficient during the 1st International Conference on “Smart and Sustainable Planning for Cities and Regions” in Bolzano, Italy, organised by the EURAC Institute for Renewable Energy. The presentations and discussions that followed, have now been published in a book gathering the conference proceedings.
