Renovate Europe Day 2020: #Renovate2Recover


Citizens are more concerned than ever before about their jobs, well-being and quality of life. Energy renovation stands at the intersection of the EU’s green priorities and growth objectives, and is the linchpin to the EU’s recovery. The Renovation Wave, expected today, will provide further regulatory impetus and guidance on how to channel EU recovery funds into buildings.
