IMPRESS held its second dissemination workshop at The Sustainable Places conference held in Aix les Bains. The conference featured a number of talks, presentations and workshops from a range of European projects. The conference allowed for a good opportunity for IMPRESS dissemination and networking with researchers of similar interests. Many of the workshops were pertinent to IMPRESS involving projects with similar objectives and ideas. The common interest of all attendees in providing a future sustainable built environment made for an informative and interactive few days. Presentations on district supply side response, novel building technologies, environmental materials and, in close connection to the objectives of IMPRESS, energy efficient buildings and facades for renovation were conducted and attended by a number of the members of IMPRESS.
