Green Building and Smart City Solutions from Austria

Advantage Austria Muscat – the Austrian Economic Delegation in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology invites you to a conference on

Green Building and Smart Cities:
innovative Energy & Building Solutions

WHEN: March 1st, 8.30 am – 5.00 pm
WHERE: City Seasons Hotel Muscat | Al Ain Hall | Al Khuwair, Muscat

Energy efficiency is a growing challenge in the Sultanate of Oman due to population growth, economic activity and high consumption rate that are unsustainable in the long run. To address this challenge, we present potential solutions. The conference will focus on two specific aspects on energy efficiency:

  1. Green Building or building efficiency, including the use of innovative new materials, technologies and designs to optimize energy usage and
  2. Smart cities such as the use of technology in urban planning to reduce energy consumption.

Green buildings and building efficiency aim to reduce the environmental impact of buildings and to improve the well-being of the people. Oman just started with the first “green buildings” and eco houses.

The urban population in Oman is forecast to grow continuously. The sultanate therefore needs integrated infrastructure and energy planning as a prerequisite to any urban master plan. "Smart Cities" allow city planners and managers to improve efficiency at the intersection of different infrastructure sectors such as electricity, water, sewage, transport, telecommunication, cooling and waste.

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology has established a network of Austrian institutions and companies providing state-of-the-art technologies to cope with the growing challenges. The participating experts from Austria will share their knowhow and will be available for b2b meetings during the event breaks.
