Energy efficiency is an integral part of global energy policy since it is not only widely recognized as an effective means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but also ensures the long-term security of the energy supply. Towards this direction, investing in energy efficiency
directly affects reducing energy consumption, while also improving industrial competitiveness and driving economic growth. In this respect, nowadays, boosting the implementation of energy efficiency measures in buildings is of paramount importance, more than ever. Mainstreaming energy efficiency financing is considered the only way to achieve the EU’s ambitious, compulsory for the environment goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
The H2020 projects are developing innovative solutions to tackle the above challenges, and they are joining forces for this common workshop at Sustainable Places 2021 to expose their approach and discuss potential synergies.
