Act for Change Food

From 12 to 30 November, EPFL invites all students, teachers and collaborators to participate in the Challenge Act for Change. The idea is, through simple actions, to experiment a more sustainable way of life on campus. This year, the the

More cargobikes on campus

In June 2017, Sustainable Campus deployed three electric cargobikes in self-service on EPFL campus, the first ones in Switzerland. After one year, the results are extremely positive with more than 10'000 km covered in total and more than

CISBAT 2019 Conference "Climate Resilient Cities - Energy Efficiency & Renewables in the Digital Era"

Created to further energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the built environment, the international CISBAT conference offers a dynamic scientific exchange platform in fields ranging from nanostructured materials for renewable energy applications to urban energy systems.
The conference bi-annually assembles two to three hundred scientists from universities and companies around the world at EPFL, with the financial support of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. Academic partners of the conference are specialists from the University of Cambridge and the MIT as well as the Swiss chapter of the International Building Performance Simulation Association IBPSA, backed by a strong international scientific committee. CISBAT also serves as an official platform of the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research (SCCER) "Future Energy Efficient Buildings & Districts" (FEEB&D)

Call topics:

  1. Smart materials for building envelopes (micro- and nanotechnologies)
  2. Climate resilient buildings (ecobuildings, retrofit, performance gap)
  3. Daylighting & electric lighting (human centric & green lighting)
  4. Human & building interaction (user centered systems, behavioral aspects)
  5. Building simulation & ICT (design, optimisation, analysis) – IBPSA special session
  6. Renewable energy in the built environment (electricity, heating and cooling)
  7. Smart buildings & districts (predictive & adaptive control)
  8. Data driven methods for the built environment (regional planning, big data and machine learning)
  9. Urban climate modelling (building energy demand, outdoor comfort, urban planning)
  10. Distributed energy systems (urban energy hubs)
