Policy meets property: a combined perspective on energy efficiency in buildings

To register to this session please get in contact with conference@eusew.eu 

With the participation of European Commissioners Miguel Arias Cañete and Günther Oettinger, this session will be a unique opportunity to bring together high-level decision makers from the buildings sector and policy makers to discuss one of the key challenges of the European energy trajectory: the steady, cost-effective improvement of energy performance of buildings in the next three decades, in view of the decarbonisation of building stocks.

This event will gather a wide participation from the buildings value chain, with a focus on property owners, to highlight and discuss the challenges on energy efficiency in buildings for the next decades, combining a policy perspective and a building sector’s field perspective informed by the long-term objectives of the EU.

The event is designed to:

- Achieve a better understanding in the buildings value chain of goals set by EU policies and how policies can support achieving these goals;

- Achieve a better understanding of the drivers that augment policy impacts on the ground (in particular in relation to financing);

- Highlight challenges of the sector, with regard to long-term EU Objectives and issue high-level recommendations to policy makers and building sector’s players.

- Discuss proposals and measures to reduce carbon emissions of the building sector based on the principles of voluntariness, cost-effectiveness and open-minded approach to technology between policy makers and the property industry.

This event will feature keynote speeches and an expert panel bringing together high-level representatives from the real estate and building sector, EU policy makers, and other energy efficiency market stakeholders.

This event will be co-chaired EC DG Energy and ZIA (Zentraler Immobilien Ausschuss).
