Energy Lunch Talk 2 – Instruments for collective renovation of the built environment



The 23 February 2022 from 13:00 until 14:00



Cities4PEDs, a two-year research project funded by JPI Urban Europe, organises a series of Energy Lunch talks with the goal to learn and further discuss specific and relevant questions to investigate Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) aspects and implementation strategies. This will be done by bringing on the table testimonies of already existing innovative practices of all around Europe and opening a conversation on possible shared challenges and in place strategies to further accelerate neighbourhood transformation and implementations toward PEDs development. 

Every Wednesday, from 13.00 to 14.00 (CET), from the 16th of February to the 16th of March, we will discuss a series of key topics related to positive energy districts. Join us to contribute and get insights from the cities of Brussels, Stockholm, Vienna and many more!

For this talk, we will discuss how the renovation of existing districts can be accelerated. How do we move from the renovation / retrofitting of singular (private) houses one by one to a collective approach (e‧g. additional subsidies, renovation coaches, energy houses, one-stop-shop or other support schemes)? By bringing in examples from within and outside our own cities, an evaluation will be made of (collective) renovation schemes that worked or not, and especially what are the next steps to be explored on this level.
