The Decarbonisation of Buildings: Turning Ambition into Action :
The Decarbonisation of Buildings: Turning Ambition into Action :

Join us 20 March at 10am CET for a webinar on the framework and implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). Register here.

Following the deal struck on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), the EU policy framework to decarbonise energy systems is now complete. However, implementing the Green Deal package is no small task, and will be a new challenge for Member States. To avoid diminishing the level of ambition reached in Brussels, we must keep the discussion alive with national and regional authorities. This session will provide wide-ranging views on setting the framework for implementing EPBD and highlight the range of solutions from the RACHP sector.
