What’sEUp: Updates on the European legislation on heating/cooling & building renovation



The 08 December 2022 from 14:00 until 15:00



Join us for this information exchange session between cities. The objective of the session is to inform cities’ political and technical teams about the important developments in the European texts concerning the local heating transition and building renovation. We will explore the new obligations that will soon fall on local governments and the ongoing debates, as well as share the recent developments of the #LocalStaff4Climate campaign that we are leading to ask for more human resources for local authorities.

Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss the latest news, in particular how their municipality is dealing with rising energy prices.
