What are smart buildings? How can they help improve the energy efficiency of Europe’s building stock?


Join experts from industry, academia and the European Commission to discuss these questions in a public workshop in St. Julian's, Malta. Some of the latest research and innovation in smart buildings will be presented in the context of European policies, notably the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) which is undergoing a review. Around 100 participants will be joined by several hundred more online, as the event will also be streamed live via, Europe’s reference portal for energy efficiency in buildings. Put your questions directly to the panellists, in person or via email and Twitter.


The workshop will take place the day before the meeting of the EPBD Concerted Action, the closed forum gathering the EU Member States and Norway to discuss implementation of Europe’s legislation on energy performance of buildings.
