Think local first: designing a building policy framework to deliver on the EU renovation challenge

The revision of the EU building policy framework in the context of the Clean Energy for all Europeans package provides an essential opportunity to empower consumers, local authorities and energy advisory services in putting Europe on track of its long-term renovation goal.

This Policy Roundtable, organized by the Horizon 2020 PUBLENEF project and the Energy Advice Exchange, will address the questions of 1) how EU and national policy can support the provision of integrated energy renovation and advisory services to consumers and 2) what is the role of local authorities and local energy advisory services in attracting private sector finance and investment for building renovations?

The roundtable will bring together consumer organisations, local authorities and building policy experts to discuss these questions and the audience will be encouraged to join the debate.
