2nd EU capacity building

Date of event: 29th September 2022

Local Integrated Home Renovation Services (IHRS) for home energy renovation are a powerful solution to Europe’s housing renovation challenge. They make ambitious energy renovation simpler for homeowners and bring public authorities closer to the achievement of their climate objectives.

Popping up all around Europe for more than 10 years, their achievements prove they are useful. But their business models remain fragile because they depend to a large extent on the interest of homeowners and the support of public authorities.

“How to make local Integrated Home Renovation Services viable on a long-run?”

This is the key question we will strive to answer in our September collaborative workshop and capacity building event, by bringing together the majority of the existing one-stop-shops. With this exciting internal workshop, we wish to get to know each other, learn together and set up a community of practitioners that will support the development of existing and future one-stop-shops in Europe.
