RES4BUILD is pleased to announce an in-person workshop on Wednesday 29 March 2023 in Brussels, Belgium. The event, titled "Decarbonising Energy Use in European Buildings: technical, financial and social drivers and barriers", will take place from 10:00-15:00.
Buildings account for more than 40% of the final energy consumption in Europe, most of which is still supplied by fossil fuels. Phasing out fossil fuel use in buildings can help address many of Europe’s most pressing challenges including climate change, air pollution and dependency on imported fuels.
However, achieving this future requires the rapid upscaling of impactful, energy-efficient solutions. Feasible solutions addressing the technological, market and social aspects of the challenge exist, such as those developed during the RES4BUILD project, but much more needs to be done.
The workshop on 29 March 2023 in Brussels will bring together research, industry, policymakers, and end users to help identify the developments and conditions that are needed to accelerate this decarbonisation and meet EU policy objectives. The agenda will follow three key themes:
- Latest technological solutions and innovations to enable the delivery of EU policy objectives.
- Addressing drivers and barriers to develop realistic recommendations for adaptations of market and regulatory conditions to accelerate the transition.
- Interactive session on end-user perspectives to better implement these changes.
The workshop is free but attendance is limited. To register see: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/decarbonising-energy-use-in-european-buildings-tickets-547594809817
