Scaling up renovation in Europe (Event co-organised with Turnkey Retrofit Project)

The role of one-stop shops in reaching a fully decarbonised building stock.

Time:  9-12pm CET

Location: online


This conference will facilitate a dialogue in the midst of the EPBD recast negotiations to identify the value added of home renovation OSS platforms to citizens, municipalities, and the market; to define strategies for overcoming market barriers; to discuss the benefits of renovation programs in alleviating energy poverty; and to highlight best practices amongst OSS programs targeting a variety of stakeholder groups.

The first of three sessions will present the learnings of the Turnkey Retrofit project and Solutions4Renovation platform that have been developed in France, Spain and Ireland with funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. The discussion will give particular attention to the process of replicating the renovation service in Spain and Ireland.

The second session, co-organised with PadovaFIT Expanded project,  will feature other European one-stop-shop initiatives to explore their key success factors and relay what is needed to step up and replicate their services.

This conference is open to anyone interested in the future of building renovations in Europe. Attendance to the conference is free, but prior registration is required.
