A New Era for the European Renovation Wave: Sharing Perspectives

Through initiatives such as the Cities Energy Saving Sprint launched by the Covenant of Mayors-Europe, the European Committee of the Regions, the European Commission and the  C40 Energy Crisis Emergency Plan, European mayors have highlighted the cities’ role in delivering and harnessing the benefits of fossil-free and energy-efficient buildings as part of the just transition. They also called for action to maximise the potential of deep renovations, which can improve energy efficiency and security, lower energy bills, increase demand for renewables, create green jobs and improve residents’ quality of life.

Ahead of the European elections, this event will take stock of the progress so far and discuss challenges and opportunities for the future regarding building renovations, following also the update of the European legislation. As part of a high-level panel discussion, speakers will also be invited to share their views on how to boost collaboration between national and subnational governments as well as different stakeholders to accelerate delivery, mobilise finance for cities and subnational governments, and better integrate local efforts into national goals and plans for building renovations.
