This is the fourth and final webinar in the GBPN series called “How to Save Energy Using Renovation Policy Measures” exploring “how to” implement a successful policy package that targets energy renovations for residential buildings. The series is based on the findings from the Policy Tool for Renovation.
This webinar addresses the critical question of how financing schemes can be developed to support and leverage the large investments needed to “go deep”? Two leading regions (the European Union, the United States) have been invited to present their innovative methods of using finance as a way to upscale deep renovations. This webinar will provide insights into the implementation of these measures and illustrate how they link with the overall policy framework. Don’t miss the opportunity to find out more from Europe and America's leading finance experts.

Energy renovation policy has only recently come onto the political agenda and is an emerging field. The Policy Tool for Renovation compares and analyses twelve current best practice renovation policies for residential buildings from Europe and the United States, using fourteen criteria that define a “state of the art” policy package. The Tool shows where positive steps have been taken, where other jurisdictions can learn from these actions and where there is scope for further progress to help countries and region to reduce the consumption of their building stock.
