November brought a highlight as ASCEND proudly participated in the joint EU representation at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona from 7 to 9 November. Alongside 30 other projects, initiatives and DGs, the event provided a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, engage in knowledge sharing, and learn from other projects’ experiences.
We discussed the role of Positive Energy Districts in achieving climate neutrality, cities' needs to achieve such a goal, and how we can replicate the PED concept more effectively.
A big thank you to all our partners and attendees for such an inspiring and insightful couple of days. And while the expo might be over, ASCEND’s journey has just begun!
