Workshop
SAVE THE DATE - Speeding up market-uptake of buildings renovation in Europe
Brussels
In Europe, buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. Currently, about 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, and by improving the energy efficiency of its building stock the EU could reduce its total energy consumption by 5-6% and lower CO2 emissions by about 5%.

Local governments can influence the efficiency of new and existing buildings in their communities and can deploy a variety of measures, policies and incentives to speed-up renovation in the public and private sector.

While most renovation decisions are taken at building level by individual owners, optimal integration of RES often requires planning and implementation at a district scale. Financing renovation of the residential sectors remains a great challenge in Europe, where many building owners or occupants simply cannot afford renovation costs and cannot apply for financing.

Other customers often see high operating costs and a poor environment as an acceptable alternative to the time-consuming, disruptive and risky renovation process.

This event will discuss the challenges shared by local governments in Europe, and will bring together a great line-up of experts to share and explore innovative technical and financial solutions and policies to boost the market uptake of renovation.
