If you’re heading along to the Sustainable Places Conference in Cagliari, Italy this year (5-7 June) you won’t want to miss our CEO & Founder, Dr Don McLean’s keynote speech on 5th June.

Speaking on \"Making communities sustainable - a manifesto for saving the planet\", Don will discuss IES's new digital twin technology, and how sustainable analysis can now be applied to communities of any size or purpose, enabling people to look at energy use holistically at a much larger scale.

He will call for leaders who can lead their community and evolve these smart concepts into truly intelligent solutions that will have a measurable and lasting impact upon climate change. Don’s belief is that, if each leader looks after their built environment footprint, in time, we can cover the Earth.



In addition to Don’s keynote, Giulia Barbano, Project Manager at IES and Adalberto Guerra Cabrera, Senior R&D Consultant at IES will be hosting a workshop alongside Roberta Pernetti from EURAC on \"Making sense of monitoring data: hands on demo on the Sensible Building Data Handler (powered by IES iSCAN)\". The workshop is scheduled to take place on Thursday 6th June from 2pm - 5:30pm. This workshop will provide attendees with an introduction to the Sensible Building Data Handler tool, including an overview of the main iSCAN and custom dashboard capabilities. The Sensible Building Data Handler (SBDH) is the 4RinEU research project's answer to the need to gather, organise and prepare for analysis, the large amount of data that is needed in the various phases of a deep renovation project.

Renowned for showcasing results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme Sustainable Places prides itself on being an ideal platform for the dissemination of research, the conduct of workshops, EU project clustering and networking between stakeholders of all types.
