We are delighted to announce Philip Lee are sponsoring IGBC Green Building Network on April 25th at the Europe House at 5.30pm.
Topic: Energy Performance of Buildings Directive – An Update
Speaker: Audrey Nugent, Senior Policy Advisor, World Green Building Council
European Union lawmakers reached a tentative agreement in December 2017 on the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
The agreement includes a strengthening of the national long-term renovation strategies:
- Strategies must be drafted with the aim of transforming the building stock, into a “highly efficient and decarbonized building stock by 2050, facilitating the cost-effective transformation of the existing buildings into NZEB”.
- Strategies must be publicly consulted and there shall also be an inclusive consultation during the implementation phase.
EU countries have to set 2030 and 2040 milestones and define “measurable progress indicators” e.g. renovation rates or a maximum energy consumption per square meter.
- These were some of key recommendations made by Green Building Councils as part of the Build Upon consultation process in Ireland and Europe and should help unlock vast energy saving potential in buildings.
Register here to avoid disappointment.
