#EUSEW: The role of multiple benefits in the European green transition



The 23 September 2022 from 12:00 until 13:30



This session aims to provide a thorough understanding of the multiple benefits approach, its expediency, the barriers hindering its widespread implementation, and its different fields of application. 

The session is organised by five EU projects approaching the topic from different perspectives: M-Benefits (companies and the tertiary sector); DEESME (SMEs); EERAdata (buildings, with a special emphasis on municipal facilities); REFEREE and MICAT (societal multiple benefits targeting policy-making and investors, using different methodologies).

In order to capitalise on these different perspectives, the session starts with five parallel groups, one for each project’s focus. Here, the multiple benefits associated with default or audience-proposed energy efficiency projects will be discussed, generating a common understanding of the general concept. 

Once the audience has has discussed the different perspectives, invited panelists who have participated in the table discussions will be invited on stage together with the European Commission to debate the topic in greater depth.
