Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Prof. Dr. Robert Krueger Director, Environmental & Sustainability Studies Worcester Polytecnic Institute WPI, USA The "Hiding Hand": Lessons from Development Economics for the Green Economy. This talk examines the work of the development economist Albert Hirschman to draw lessons for the green economy. The argument I want to make is that the current green economic boom is the greatest development effort since the post war period. However, this time, we are not rebuilding a war torn Europe or the global south, but the infrastructures of industrialized nations. Hirschman s work provides a cautionary note against narrow minded development projects, environmentally friendly or otherwise. Robert Krueger, PhD is Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences and Associate Professor of Geography at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). He is also Guest Professor of Sustainable Spatial Planning at the Institute of Geography at the Université du Luxembourg.

Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Prof. Dr. Daniel Favrat Professor and Director technologies, EPFL Energy Center Federal Institute of Technology EPFL, Switzerland Information and public education: key factors for a sustainable energy transition. While discussions on energy transition flourish in many countries it is striking to see the low level of information of the general public and the weakness of some of the indicators being used. The talk will first introduce our new webbased free platform (www.energyscope.ch), intended for a general public, with a brief description of its three main components (a) a calculator of scenario (b) a book and (c) a MOOC (Massive open online Course for citizens). It illustrates, among others, the strong seasonal patterns that need to be considered when matching demand with a supply including a growing percentage of renewable. Decision makers and public information with clear indicators and facts is key, in democratic societies, to boost the acceptance of new and often constraining policies, norms and labels that are frequently the most effective in terms of energy and economic efficiency, technical development as well as for the global environment. Examples will be briefly discussed. Swiss US Energy Innovation Days /18 Workshop Chairs & Speakers Profiles

4 Keynote Thursday, August 20 Mr. Paul Gromer CEO, Peregrine Energy Group, USA Are sustainability policies always good for sustainability businesses: lessons from the US energy efficiency industry. Government policies intended to promote sustainable behavior often help clean energy companies, spurring technology innovation and business growth. However, these policies can also affect companies in surprising ways, in some cases discouraging innovation and slowing growth. Using a nine year, $5 billion energy efficiency program in Massachusetts as a case study, this address will examine several types of government policies and their impacts on clean energy companies. It will also consider the relationship between the policies impact on those companies and the policies ultimate success at promoting sustainable behavior.

Keynote Thursday, August 20 Dr. Bastien Girod Senior Researcher, Group for Sustainability and Technology SusTec Federal Institute of Technology ETHZ, Switzerland Mainstreaming low carbon innovations: learnings from the past and challenges ahead. The keynote will first outline the challenge that the acceptance for a low carbon tax is low (in the US as well as in Switzerland), and hence targeted support of low carbon innovations is required to enable a transition to a low carbon economy. Success stories in the building sector show that policies need to be tailored to the low carbon innovation to effectively support their development. However, looking at the development of sectoral Swiss and EU climate policies allows to synthesize a common pattern for supporting policies. To create a (common) market for low carbon innovations tackling embodied emissions through harmonization of environmental products declaration remains a key challenge to be addressed. Bastien Girod is born 1980 in Geneva. Since 2007 he is elected member of the Swiss parliament and the Swiss Committee for the Environment, Spatial Planning and Energy.

Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Mr. Swapnil Shah CEO, Firstfuel, USA Using Data to Foment Transformation: The Power of Data to Drive Energy Savings in the Business Sector. Oftentimes, smart energy use in buildings focuses on new construction. While efficient standards are an important element to a robust energy strategy, this focus on construction leaves massive energy savings opportunities on the table. Until recently, methods to identify savings within existing building stock and convey this information to customers have been timeintensive, disruptive, and expensive. Data analytics can upend the process to identify top savings opportunities at the building level at scale faster, cheaper, and more accurately than traditional methods. Swap will explore the power of data to identify both retrofit and operational energy savings potential in existing buildings all while enabling energy providers to build stronger relationships with their business customers.

7 Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Mr. Karl Viriden Director, Viriden & Partner, Switzerland partner.ch Retrofit for the next 50 years. When buildings are in need of refurbishment the open question is whether the replacement by a new building could be a solution. This question was raised with all the presented projects and was answered after preliminary studies with no. When a decision for refurbishment, deep renovation or densification has been taken, the next open question to be addressed is whether this intervention should last for the next 10, 30 or more years. We try to fulfill the demands of sustainability in these refurbishments by being cost effective compatible with the 2000 Watt society even after 2050 fostering well balanced social diversity and the fourth dimension of sustainability: using good architecture The three examples for refurbishment are located in Basel (net zero energy building) residential building with 10 apartments and 2 shops Romanshorn (PlusEnergieBau) residential building with 20 apartments and 8 shops/offices and Flums (PlusEnergieBau) offices with staff restaurant. Viridén + Partner AG currently has a team of six, maintaining successful cooperations with a number of specialists and disposing of an extensive network of contacts. We carry out reconstructions and renovations according to ecological criteria. We try to reduce environmental pollution by more than factor four by creating buildings with a low energy consumption.

We also strive to complete building projects within the shortest construction time possible. Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Mr. Christoph Gmuer Head of Energy Technology, Construction Department, Canton of Zurich, Switzerland Development of the energy regulations and their impacts. According to the Federal Constitution of Switzerland the 26 cantons are responsible for the decree of energy regulations in the building sector. Within the Swiss conference of the cantonal ministers of energy (EnDK, the cantons co operate for the development and the implementation of energy regulations in the building sector. This leads to a high level of harmonization, for example through the use of common forms for the energy part of the building permit or through common calculation tools. Swiss US Energy Innovation Days /18 Workshop Chairs & Speakers Profiles

8 The most important element of this co operation are model regulations (MuKEn, Mustervorschriften der Kantone im Energiebereich, model regulations of the cantons of energy regulations in the building sector). Although the adoption of these regulations into cantonal law is voluntary for the cantons, they lead to a high level of harmonization of the requirements. The model regulations are regularly adjusted to the development of new technology. The first edition was issued in It concerned primarily the thermal insulation of building envelope as well as the heating systems. With the revision in the year 2000, the requirement for an amount of renewable energy for the heating system of new buildings was added. The standard «Minergie» (building certificate for very energy efficient buildings with a high comfort), launched by the cantons in 1998, triggered a market development. The 2008 edition of the model regulations tightened the requirements by approximately 30%. Eventually, on 9th January 2015, the EnDK passed the latest model regulations «MuKEn 2014». The goal is that starting from 2020 the new buildings in Switzerland should be so called Nearly zero Energy Buildings (NZEB). The definition of the requirements of the NZEB took place in such a way, that with cost optimized measures concerning building energy efficiency and application of renewable energies (at the building) the total energy need for heating, domestic hot water, ventilation and air conditioning shall be as nearly as possible to zero. Christoph Gmür is Head of Energy Technology within the Construction Department of the Canton of Zurich. He studied mechanical engineering at the ETH Zurich.

Pitch Wednesday, August 19 Dr. Matthias Boelke CEO Switzerland, Schneider Electric, Switzerland electric.com Digitization of energy: massive change unique opportunity. Digitization of energy is transforming massively our energy landscape. Big Data is all around and is influencing drastically all current developments in energy. Consumer being relatively inflexible, passive and not sensitive so far, will converge to flexible, active and highly sensible grid participants. Digitization will enable both: efficient decentralized production and energy efficiency. The big data phenomena in energy grid topologies enables new architectures but will raise new players on the field and will allow new policies. Data and software are prerequisite for active energy management and energy efficiency.

9 Keynote Thursday, August 20 Mr. Paul Mc Manus Senior Lecturer, Strategy & Innovation Department School of Business, Boston University, USA The Business of Energy: New Models for District Level Energy Networks. Moving to district level energy networks requires a complete shift from the current technical paradigm of a relatively few, large centralized generation, dispatch and distribution systems to one of many highly coordinated small, spatially distributed systems. This shift represents significant architectural and topological changes to our current systems and major technical communications and control challenges that must be overcome to provide responsive, resilient, flexible and efficient services to customers. At the same time, district level energy networks will be complex multisided socio technical ecosystems made up of new stakeholders, technologies, and information flows that must operate in markets with sustainable business models. Network based business models and platforms structures will allow the architecture, governance and economics of the business systems to mirror that of the technical systems and ensure district level energy systems realize their full potential. This talk will explore emerging business and organizational models for energy networks at the district level that engage stakeholders dynamic plug and play markets.

Where are these potentials located and how can we connect them to energy needs? Worldwide energy challenges have led to the definition of major common objectives either at the local or international level, such as energy efficiency promotion, optimal use of local and renewable energy resources or greenhouse gas emissions reduction, while keeping the current logic of overall growth. The solutions that allow achieving these overall objectives within a territory are linked to energy demand reduction, equipment and energy conversion systems efficiency improvement along with a sustained penetration of renewable energies.

10 In addition to a more rational and efficient energy use, the whole energy system in itself, from resources extraction to final energy delivery, contains a significant potential in terms of both energy savings and renewable energies use. Nevertheless, shifting the present energy paradigm and designing energy systems, based on their efficiency and ability to valorize local energy resources at territory scale, lead to an increased complexity. The main issues to be faced are related, on one hand, to resources and needs spatial disparity and, on the other hand, to nonsimultaneous demand and production. This spatial temporal resolution for energy systems induces new challenges in terms of territory knowledge, use of local resources and distribution infrastructures. As a first step, local decision makers need to access to a more structured information, to better understand current situation in terms of energy resources and needs and identify potential synergies between them. In these sense, spatialized register of renewable energy potential and industrial waste heat are key element. These information are necessary to: a) Combined to energy needs data, evaluate, decide and implement sustainable territorial strategies b) Dispose of structured relevant information, at time when buildings, districts or infrastructure projects are launched. M. Gaëtan Cherix is Director at the Center for Research in Energy and Cities (CREM), located in Martigny.

Keynote Thursday, August 20 Dr. Dominik Brem Head, Real Estate Division, ETH Zurich, Switzerland dominik Moving toward a carbon neutral campus: An anergy grid replaces fossil fuels. There is no doubt that there is a need to dramatically reduce consumption of fossil fuels. The new ETH Zurich energy concept includes plans for deploying as much anergy for heating and cooling purposes as possible through the use of geothermal energy and waste heat. What, however, makes this dynamic underground storage system which is essentially based on conventional technologies such as heat pumps a flagship project? The principle behind the dynamic underground storage system is as simple as it is ingenious; the subterranean storage fields function like a battery which, depending on the season and building use, is either charged or discharged. While some buildings are heated during winter others, such as those housing data centers, tend to emit heat throughout the year. To date, the heat generated by the latter type of buildings simply vanished. However, with the implementation of the underground dynamic storage system along with the water filled earth probe fields, this otherwise wasted heat is stored meters below ground level for the purpose of heating in the winter. As buildings are heated during the cold months, heat is extracted from the storage and the temperature of the water drops. The process subsequently provides cool water to buildings in the summer. The system is thus considered a dynamic system because it provides both heating and cooling. At this point in time, the project is in the process of being deployed and optimized. Final completion of the circuit ring, substations and earth probes will, for the most part, likely occur prior to However, the campus is growing and, as such, each substation is designed to service several buildings (called clusters) some of which have yet to be built or still require renovations.

To decrease the environmental footprint and increase human well being he and his teams research and develop new approaches, methods and technologies to make buildings efficient and dynamic agents in the urban fabric. Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Prof. Dr. Kiel Moe Associate Professor, Architecture & Energy, Harvard Graduate School of Design, USA Maximum Power Design. I will notion that rather than efficient buildings and systems, we need to design more powerful systems. I will argue that we need to place buildings within their proper hierarchy of energy in order to best identify how to more powerfully design building as a key process of contemporary urbanization. Much of this will ultimately bear on mass flow and material geographies. In this way, designers and politicians can better discern the role of architecture and urbanization and thus better address the deceptively simple but important question: how should we live in this century? Kiel Moe is a registered practicing architect and Associate Professor of Architecture & Energy in the Department of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. At the GSD, Moe teaches and coordinates core design studios, seminars on Forms of Energy, and lectures on architecture and energy. His research and pedagogy focuses on an agenda for design and energy that is at once more ecologically and architecturally ambitious. As such, he focuses on both buildings as manifestations of large scale energy systems as well as overlooked and discrete thermal parameters in buildings that yet have great impact on the power and thermodynamic depth of architecture. This research is the basis for his design research and his design practice. He is also author of multiple books. Swiss US Energy Innovation Days /18 Workshop Chairs & Speakers Profiles

16 Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Mr. Markus Schaefer Partner, Hosoya Schaefer, Switzerland A practitioners approach to the Urban Age. Urbanity is the critical density of human interactions (the exchange of symbols) and transactions (the exchange of goods) that allows for social differentiation, innovation and adding value for cultures and markets. With social differentiation at its fermenting core, urbanity inherently leads to growth and expansion. Techniques and organizations such as money, empire and religion enable this expansion; technologies such as transport and communication infrastructure speed it up. Since its invention about 8'000 years ago, urbanity has been continuously optimized. Its increasing efficiency and reach allowed for ever growing populations and cultural complexity, a point from where we cannot return without radical, even unthinkable, changes. Energy we will likely have plenty. But will we be able to handle complexity? Faced with systemic boundaries prescribed by our limited planet, we might need to change our thinking and look not for smartness but for resilience, not solutions but adaptability, not integration but subsidiarity, not global panacea but local intelligence. Markus Schaefer is co founder of Hosoya Schaefer Architects in Zürich. He has a MArch from Harvard University and a MSc from the University of Zürich. The office is known for its large scale urban design projects, but also works on architecture, media design and urban research. Prior to founding Hosoya Schaefer, Markus Schaefer was a director of AMO in Rotterdam, the think tank and research department of OMA / Rem Koolhaas. Both with work at Hosoya Schaefer and OMA / AMO, Markus Schaefer has won several international awards. He lectures and publishes regularly. He is also partner and head of research at CityTrackerX AG, a privately funded research and development company aiming at a real time performance analysis of cities. Keynote Wednesday, August 19 Ms. Friederike Pfromm Head, Real Estate Department, City of Lucerne, Switzerland Report on the sustainable development in the city of Lucerne. Many players devise requirements for the sustainable development in Lucerne. I will give a short outline of who they are and how they interact. Then I will show how we are able to monitor our own requirements, our practical experiences with them and a few thoughts about the underlying contradictions. Born in Switzerland, studied architecture in Berlin, own architectural firm in Berlin, teaching at the Bauhaus University Weimar, leading the building department in a medium sized enterprise in Buchen/Odenwald, division manager of the building department of the city of St.Gallen, head of the real estate department of the city of Lucerne.

17 Keynote Thursday, August 20 Ms. Andrea Love Director, Building Science, Payette Associates, USA Building Energy Literacy. The increase in programs and policies regarding building energy in the United States have created growing cognizance about how intertwined building energy usage and the architectural industry are. The session explore a case study of Payette, a Boston based architectural firm, and their path to greater literacy and understanding about building energy. Programs such as the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment, a voluntary program where firms work towards designing net zero buildings by 2030, has dramatically changed the way we work creating a Building Science department within the firm and integrating performance information into our design process. Influences have come from many levels local, state, and national. Policies such as the Massachusetts Stretch Energy Code and municipal Building Energy Disclosure Ordinances have also contributed to the raise in energy awareness, and the influence of aspirations such as the City of Cambridge Net Zero Action Plan, as well as the commitment toward carbon neutrality by many clients, continue to push for ever more efficient buildings. At Payette, a Boston based architecture firm, Andrea is the Director of Building Science working across all projects to bring rigor to the performance of our work. Additionally, she leads research projects, and was the Principal Investigator on the AIA Upjohn Grant focused on thermal bridging. She is a Lecturer at MIT in the Building Technology group where she teaches a class on building envelope performance. Andrea is a licensed architect and has her Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon, and a Masters in Building Technology from MIT where she was the recipient of the Tucker Voss Award. She serves on the Board of Directors for the USGBC Massachusetts, on the USGBC Chapter Steering Committee, is a member of the AIA COTE Advisory Group, and chairs the AIA 2030 Working Group. Keynote Thursday, August 20 Dr. Joris van Wezemael Portfolio Manager, Pensimo Real Estate Management, Switzerland Organizational Capacities for a holistic energy planning and urban design an alternative conception of real estate. In the presented paper, I will focus on key aspects of organization and decision making in real estate and present a novel conception of real estate investment management. More specifically, I will present the following shift in perspective: from the (traditional and Aristotelian) question of what we are (such as an «investment manager») towards the more fundamental and practical (Deleuzian) question of what we do. Instead of viewing the investment manager as the (sole and) central agent and to stage the building stock of a real estate portfolio as basically inert matter, I propose to conceptualise the buildings of a portfolio as «probe heads» (or «search devices») which explore potentials and specific scalarities of tapping into energy landscapes. Swiss US Energy Innovation Days /18 Workshop Chairs & Speakers Profiles

18 The suggested shift fundamentally questions the nature (or the ontology) of an «investor» and its relations to the built, physical, institutional, or enery environment. The traditional conception of an investor reduces energymanagement to a specific set of fairly well defined (and thus isolated) decisions, it objectifies the world of «energy systems» as external and opposed to the firm (or the «world of management»). The suggested view, however, depicts the investor (such as a real estate investmant foundation) as a spatially dispersed and hybrid actor network that relates infrastructure, parts of buildings, knowledge management, compliance and much more. Thus, the latter conception displays «real estate» as actively tapping (and providing) into the flow of matter and energy with thousands of locally fixed real estate objects as searching devices. This, again, opens up the potential to explore alternative energy futures and their co evolutionary interrelation with organizational becomings. Against this background, I will focus on the prerequisites in the organization of management that allows for mobilizing the potential benefits of the proposed conception of real estate. More specifically, I will show that fundamentals of decision making in real estate such as legitimacy of action, business ethics or the governance of collective learning processes are paramount for an organizational transformation towards a more holistic energy planning and design. I will illustrate my argument with projects and policies of the pensimo group. PD Dr. Joris Van Wezemael has been trained as an economic geographer, architectural sociologist, town planner and economist. In his academic work he contributed to concepts of collective decision making in spatial planning and urbanism. Currently he teaches at the Department of Architecture (ETH Zürich) and at the Centre for Urban and Real Estate Management (UZH). As a portfolio manager with Pensimo Management AG (Real Estate Investment Manager) he is responsible for a Swiss Portfolio, and he deals with issues that concern corporate responsibility and organisational learning.
