Accelerating the energy retrofitting in condominiums



The 01 January 1970

Municipalities and regions have a key role to play in the energy retrofit of condominiums. Many of them are already addressing the residential sector as part of their climate policies, but they are still often unaware of the specific challenges and needs of condominiums. Find out about the strategies and tools developed by two European projects, ACE-Retrofitting and INNOVATE, to better address condominiums.

This one-day event will be an opportunity for decision-makers and practitioners to exchange on solutions to accelerate the energy retrofitting of condominiums from both, a political and an operational point of view.

The event starts at 9:30 am with registration and ends with a networking cocktail (4:30 pm-5:30 pm). The day is split into a first half which is conference and networking and the afternoon boat tour study visit and networking.
