Following the success of earlier events in the series, SEB-16, the Eighth International Conference on Sustainability in Energy and Buildings took place in the vibrant city of Turin, organised by the Politecnico di Torino in partnership with KES International.

SEB-16 invites participation and paper submissions across a broad range of sustainability and energy related topics relevant to the main theme of Sustainability in Energy and Buildings.

Applicable areas include sustainable design and of buildings, neighbourhoods and cities (built and natural environment); optimisation and modelling techniques; smart energy systems for smart cities; green information communications technology; and well as a broad range of solar, wind, wave and other renewable energy topics.

The conference brought together researchers and government and industry professionals to discuss the future of energy in buildings, neighbourhoods and cities from a theoretical, practical, implementation and simulation perspective.
