Focused on energy efficiency and the use of solar energy in the built environment, CISBAT offers a dynamic international platform for scientific exchange in fields ranging from nanostructured materials for renewable energy applications to urban energy systems.
CISBAT 2017 took place from 6 to 8 September 2017 at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland under the topic "Future Buildings and Districts - Energy Efficiency from Nano to Urban Scale".
Designed as a platform for interdisciplinary dialog and presentations of innovative research and development in the field of sustainability in the built environment, the conference covered a wide range of subjects from solar nanotechnologies to the metabolism of urban districts.
The organisers warmly thank all who made this conference a success: keynotes, presenters, session chairs and active participants, our partners, the scientific committee, LESO-PB and EPFL staff, caterers as well as guides of technical visits. We also express our sincere gratitude to our main sponsor, the Federal Office of Energy, without whom CISBAT could not have taken place, as well as to the Federal Commission for Technology and Innovation who funded the Science meets Industry Session through the Swiss Competence Centre for Energy Research "Future Energy Efficient Buildings and Districts".
