About a one-third of total greenhouse gas emissions in the US and Europe stem from buildings. Reducing the environmental footprint of the building stock is thus a huge endeavour and is reflected in the EU Renovation Wave Strategy that aims to at least double renovation rates in the next ten years and make sure renovations lead to higher energy and resource efficiency. The US Department of Energy also announced sweeping actions to power more American homes and buildings with cleaner, smarter, and more affordable energy services that sharply reduce the buildings sector contributions to the climate crisis.
BPIE‘s first US-EU webinar will provide an overview of the EU and US overarching plans and investment strategies to boost energy-efficient renovations in buildings, in particular:
What are the main objectives of the EU Renovation Wave and how can the Next Generation EU and the economic recovery plan trigger investments for the transformation of the building stock?
How will theAmerican Jobs Plan make the needed investments in US core energy infrastructure to combat climate change and advance environmental justice?
What federal programmes support state and local action to advance energy efficiency in homes and buildings across the US?
QualDeEPC sister projects share insights into theirs activities supporting the evolution of current building performance schemes and the overarching roll-out of the Renovation Wave Strategy in a lively and informative panel discussion moderated by EuroACE.
