Sustainable Places (SP) is annual international conference series facilitates innovation pathways for advances to the state of the arts in Energy-efficient Buildings (EeB) and smart homes, districts, and interconnected power grid technologies (e.g. renewable production, energy storage and management, construction materials, retrofitting, urban planning, etc.). SP fosters lasting market impacts, and has become a reference European event and proven platform where theory meets practice, unlocking new linkages between data formulation and the underpinning theories, cases, observations, and validated hypotheses arising from the analysis of that data. SP2018, the 6th SP iteration, will be organized by CEA LITEN and R2M Solution. INES SOLAIRE the local area host for SP2018 is a leading solar-energy research with technologies for building, mobility, storage and grids.
