Energy efficient buildings- Plan. Invest. Renovate! (EmBuild Final conference)

Energy efficient buildings- Plan. Invest. Renovate! (EmBuild Final conference)

The EU-funded project EmBuild is at his closing year, but it can already encount many positive results. These results will be showcased at the EmBuild Final Conference, organised in partnership with the Energy Community and aiming to explore how cities and municipalities can be the engine for achieving the deep renovation targets of Europe's building stock. The EmBuild Final Conference is recognised as Energy Day and organised as part of EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW).

By gathering local and national authorities from Southeastern Europe, experts in the energy efficiency field and more, this event will share best practices of local plans which can inspire further action and present tools that can facilitate the formulation of these plans.

The event will be an opportunity to:

  • Present and discuss the EU Energy Efficiency policy developments and support to finance energy efficiency investments.
  • Present the support given by the Energy Community.
  • Share mayors’ best practice experiences from the region.
  • Engage policy-makers and stakeholders in an informed discussion on ways to replicate successful renovation strategies.
  • Identify and discuss non-energy benefits related to deep renovation.

A draft agenda can be found below:
