Join us to discuss the different aspects of the mission to get European buildings zero-emission ready with experts from across the industry value chain, policymakers and civil society representatives.
Let’s explore the path to our future buildings in the zero-emission energy system!
Buildings in the EU have a huge decarbonisation potential for our economy. The revision of the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EBPD) sets the legislative framework for the buildings of our future to slash their carbon intensity and to support integrated, renewable-based energy systems and energy efficiency with smarter buildings.
The ECI-Leonardo Energy debate series Road to zero-emission buildings will explore different aspects needed to achieve net-zero buildings, from the application of the energy efficiency first principle and energy systems to consumer needs and training professionals.
Road to Zero-Emission Buildings Debate Series
#1: Road to zero-emission buildings: Energy efficiency first
This first webinar explores how we can minimise losses in buildings as we exponentially electrify the economy and maximise the reuse of waste energy. Efficiency improvements of the building envelope, such as insulation and glazing, are well known, but what about technical building systems? Are there still opportunities to gain energy savings and improve system efficiency? How do we ensure these solutions are taken up within the legislative framework?

#2: Road to zero-emission buildings: Finding the right skills for a new age of construction
Fundamental changes are faced by the construction sector in training, qualification and certification needs, new roles and skills, innovations and best practices. Which professionals are needed for ZEB and electrification? What will be their role? How can we develop the availability of skilled professionals?

#3: Road to zero-emission buildings: Towards effective energy systems
This debate will focus on how buildings should be prepared for their role in managing intermittent energy from renewable sources, storage, e-mobility, and smart and digital transformations. How can building play an active role into the energy system? What are the preconditions?

#4: Road to zero-emission buildings: Accompanying consumers through electrification
This debate will explore how we can ensure that consumers engage with the transition to electrification and provide active support. What are consumers needs in clean transport and heating? How can we provide the right information to consumers?
