Energy efficiency and green technologies in urban environment still remain a risky financial experiment for Russian businessmen. However, the situation is gradually changing, partly owing to modern solutions in fields of engineering and design. Attractive (in terms of aesthetics and comfort) constructions of ‘green’ buildings provide added value to projects, since cities and townspeople ultimately choose life in an environment created according to the laws of beauty and health.

Key topics:

  • What does ‘green’ technology actually produce: a comfortable and healthy urban living environment, environmental friendliness or economy?
  • Innovative technologies for construction of energy-efficient buildings
  • Smart design for smart home: how to increase IQ of the building?
  • Russian technologies for sustainable construction: breakthroughs and gaps. The role of industrial design in energy efficiency
  • The logic of economy and the logic of comfort. Should energy efficient technologies be aesthetically attractive?
  • Marketing in ‘green’ technologies: how to attract the audience?
