SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS: How businesses in Czechia use, produce or buy energy sustainably

Skoda Auto want to produce electric vehicles only in their Czech factory. Skanska builds our new homes and offices, so they produce their own energy and use as little resources as possible. And Vodafone has built first green mobile network. Vodafone pro nás postavil první zelenou mobilní síť. Why does it make sense for both small business and corporations to use power green?

Aron Lazarchik, Skoda Auto – A sustainably charged future: could electric cars help our overheated grid? Is a completely-electric transportation infrastructure actually desirable? What about e-waste, are recycled batteries just a dream or a real possibility?

Eva Neudertová, Skanska – There is not one magic trick to using energy sustainably. How do we show people that the real charm lies in little things we do every day?

Adriana Dergam, Vodafone – Vodafone is to use renewable energy only by 2025. What steps need to be taken? And how did we manage to create first green network in the Czech Republic?

12:50 – 14:50 Block II
URBAN LIVING ON THE PLANET: How modern energy saves our cities

Our cities are heating up and one of the ways to cool them down is to hook them up to green power. If we share cars and flats, we could also share our local energy. What is already being done and what is the effect?

Camille Orthlieb & Robin Kirschke, Itten+Brechbühl – How to build the most sustainable building on the planet. Solar panel, heat pumps, recycled materials. What can we find in the Olympic House?

Ignacio Garcia Faubel, Barrio La Pinada – Sun, biogas and local microgrid. Why do the citizens of Spanish Valencia decide to build energy self-sufficient and sustainable urban area?

Martin Barry, reSITE – Prague, Brooklyn, Shanghain. We make these cities loveable. Can clean energy and green technologies make them even nicer?

15:20 – 17:20 Block III
INNOVATION TO SAVE THE EARTH: How technologies save our future

We build millions of great ideas into start ups, but only a few of them last. What is the key difference? Let’s dive deeper and talk to investors about what changes start ups into businesses that save our future.

Francisco Benedito, Climate Trade – Why would former bankers build the largest marketplace for trading emissions, what makes the UN back them up and how do they invest ClimateCoins?

Erki Ani, Cleantech forESTTransition to cleaner sources of energy is inevitable and by creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and startups, the supporting infrastructure plays an important role. Can cleantech and energy startups tackle the global resource and energy scarcity problems on their own?

Eric Appleton, Energy Systems Catapult Decarbonising Heat. With around 50% of global energy used in Heating and Cooling, what new business models could accelerate the transition to lower carbon solutions?

Sven Pluut, We Share Solar – 6300. That many people have already invested in renewable energy source through the We Share Solar platform. What drives people to invest in and co-own a local renewable source?
