<ul><li> 1. CUD Global Conference Amsterdam September 23-24, 2008 Breakout Program Day One - September 23 Thematic Sessions (Parallel) 1600 1730 A - Connected and Sustainable Work: CUD Smart Work Centers Amsterdam is launching the first of what is to become a network of Smart Work Centers, substituting physical travel, offsetting carbon emissions while alleviating a day in the life of a worker. The first Connected and Sustainable Work breakout session is dedicated to the Smart Work Center. What does the concept constitute? What are the early lessons learned? How replicable is it? What does the business model look like? What is the perspective of the various stakeholders involved?

C - Green ICT: On the Greening of IT and Broadband Information Technology is set to provide the building blocks of a sustainable and distributed urban environment, allowing for a dramatic change in the way human enterprise is conducted and sustained. Yet Information Technology is also a heavy consumer of energy, with some research predicting the IT sector at large is soon to overtake the aviation sector as a polluter. Much can and must be done to green the sector itself. What is currently being undertaken in CUD Cities? How can datacenters best be Datacenters greened? How will next generation high end broadband infrastructure allow for a greening of the sector and for urban society at large? The Greening of San Francisco Chris Vein, CIO of the City and County of San Francisco Amsterdam: Tomorrows Green ICT Hub. Towards a Comprehensive Approach Dr Anwar Osseyran, Director of SARA and Dirk van der Woude, Broadband Manager, City of Amsterdam Fiber for a Greener Future? Joannes de Wilde, Chairman of the Sustained Development FTTH ( SUDEFIB ) committee of the European Fiber to the Home Council Moderated by Shane Mitchell D - Sustainable Energy in Connected Urban Environments: CUD Projects, Challenges and Lessons Learned The energy consumed by buildings and homes causes 50% of total city greenhouse gas emissions. Recent developments may allow cities to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of buildings, homes and open spaces. We are at the brink of a critical convergence of three major technologies: 1) smart electric grids deployed by electric utility companies, 2) local distributed renewable energy sources, and 3) advanced digital energy management and control systems. The integration of these technologies promises to have major impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by buildings and homes. Combined, these solutions will allow buildings and homes to actively monitor and manage their energy consumption automatically turning on & off energy-consuming appliances and adjusting thermostats to preserve occupant comfort and control while optimizing for energy cost, demand and carbon content. This session will introduce related CUD projects regarding energy-efficient urban living and debate challenges and achievements, sharing experiences and lessons learned. Introduction on topic and speakers J.D. Stanley, Director, IBSG Public Sector, Cisco Intelligent Energy Management in Madrid Urban Areas Angel-Luis Fernandez, General Director Urbanism, Madrid Centro, City of Madrid Smart Energy in Public Buildings in Lisbon: an integrated approach Livia Tirone, Delegate Administrator, Lisboa e-Nova - Municipal Agency for Energy and the Environment, City of Lisbon Low Carbon Living in the Birmingham Smart Home Cllr Paul Tilsley, Deputy Leader, Birmingham City Council and Sandy Taylor, Head of Climate Change and Sustainability, Birmingham City Council Moderated by: J.D. Stanley, Maria-Jos Sobrini and Carla Pedro </li> <li> 3. E - Connected and Sustainable Buildings and distributed Urban Design: Projects, Challenges, Lessons Learned Cities around the world have made significant commitments to concrete sustainability goals. These objectives can only be achieved with a comprehensive approach to manage the eco-footprint of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and to utilize ICT networks and services to improve the sustainable design and development of cities. ICT is set to become the connective tissue for mixed-use, distributed, digitally mediated city environments. This session discusses current sustainable urban design and development projects and lessons learnt that drive the eco-effectiveness of cities. Introductory Remarks Wolfgang Wagener, Head CUD (San Francisco), Cisco Treasure Island San Francisco Jared Blumenfeld, Director of the Environment, City and County of San Francisco Climate Table and Roadmap to Carbon Neutral Buildings in Amsterdam Ronald Prins, Director of the Environment , City of Amsterdam Masdar City Abu Dhabi: Zero Carbon City Master Plan And Design Gordon Falconer, Strategy Director, Masdar Initiative Abu Dhabi DigitalSTROM for Cities Ludger Hovestadt, President digitalSTROM Alliance, Professor ETH Zurich Moderated by Wolfgang Wagener F - Strategic Role of Carbon Markets : Implications and Responses. Session I : Principles and application of global carbon markets This session outlines the principles of global carbon markets and the enabling environments required to attract urban low carbon investment. It will first outline existing institutions including early lessons from the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. It will then examine business models and local institutional and data provision structures required for cities to fully benefit from a carbon market. It will discuss how the emerging global carbon market should build on current institutions and mechanisms (e.g. linking up existing and developing regional carbon markets). It will consider how cities can position themselves to capture a share of the billions of dollars of low-carbon investment that carbon markets can fund. Pricing carbon - the fundamentals Dr Chris Hope, Judge Business School, Cambridge University Modeling carbon flows globally and regionally Stephen Muers, Director of Strategy, Office of Climate Change, UK Government Q & A Panel moderated by Dimitri Zenghelis, Chief Economist, Cisco IBSG Climate Change Practice Moderated by Dimitri Zenghelis </li> <li> 4. Day Two - September 24 Thematic Sessions (Parallel) 1100 1245 A- Connected and Sustainable Work: Exploring Smart Work Solutions and the Future of Work As the first Connected & Sustainable Work session focused on the Smart Work Center, the second session seeks to explore further smart work solutions and is to facilitate an exchange on the future of work. How mobile will we become? Can we do without the regular office? How will physical locations tie-in to the virtual work environments that presently emerge? How will broadband facilitate such a work arena?
