Building standards and codes to drive renovation
Event Description

To date, renovations largely take place on a voluntary basis – there is no uniform obligation on member states and local authorities to renovate buildings, and engaging both building owners and the financial sector is a lengthy and uneven process. However, building standards and codes, which can be defined as a comprehensive set of interconnected regulations that are designed to govern new construction or renovations, are potential paths to support and boost renovations. The EPBD (2018) launched the discussion of making minimum requirements mandatory, as they can be effective instruments to achieve the European Union’s long-term targets of achieving a highly efficient and decarbonised building stock by 2050. Join us on January 11th to discuss the status of standards and codes in the EU and the US and how they can be key for achieving highly energy-efficient buildings, new and renovated. This webinar is the is the fifth and final of a series taking place as part of the EU-US energy dialogue, focusing on building renovation and the green recovery. It has been organised with the financial support of the European Union’s Partnership Instrument. The opinions expressed are the sole responsibility of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union.
