Accelerating the energy retrofitting in condominiums



The 26 March 2020 from 09:30 until 12:00

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 digital 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.
