[Event] Building Renovation Strategies. From Directive to Delivery, 16 May 2014


As the deadline for European Member States to present their national renovation strategy is imminent on April 30, BPIE, the state of Baden-Württemberg and the German Institute for Energy and Environment (IFEU) will hold an event to present case studies of innovative approaches to renovating building stocks (16 May 2014 in Brussels from 9:45 a.m to 1:00 p.m).

The Southern German State of Baden-Württemberg and IFEU will present a model to building specific renovation plans, and speakers from the Czech Republic, France and the Brussels Region will talk about their respective approaches. The workshop will give inspiration for the challenging exercise many European Member states are still struggling with.

The Energy Efficiency Directive requires Member States to develop renovation strategies by end of April 2014. Detailed strategies on how to improve the energy performance of their residential and commercial buildings have to be submitted.
