European Aluminium organized E2VENT public workshop on 19th April in Brussels, attended by 50 participants.
The workshop tackled innovation in the renovation sector and opportunities and challenges under the coming new EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), approved by the European Parliament on 17th April.
The first panel included representatives from European Commission DG ENERGY, Renovate Europe and experts from Belgium and Greece. The outcome of the discussions is that the new EPBD should contribute to increase renovation rates but that other financial and legal instruments as well as Concerted Action with Members States will be equally important. The second panel included speakers from European Construction Technology Platform and E2VENT project partners.
