The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

In the morning and early afternoon, a fantastic occasion to take stock of Covenant cities' achievements.   In the afternoon, a lively Citizens’ Dialogue together with youth and local authorities, to engage participants as part of the European Climate Pact.

The current development in building energy efficiency towards nZEB buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction. One of these major challenges is the increased need for cooling in these highly insulated and airtight buildings, which is not only present in the summer period but also in the shoulder seasons and in offices even in midwinter. Ventilative cooling can be an energy efficient solution to address this cooling challenge in buildings.

Renewable and waste heat sources are foreseen at the same time as decarbonized heat sources and the way to guarantee competitive energy costs with limited influence of fossil fuel supply price volatility. To achieve this, a transition is needed in DHs, comprising not only measures to improve overall performance (temperature level reductions, improvement of substations, etc.), but to guarantee system viability as a whole in a context of reduced heat loads with the transition to Near Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB).

Humans have been trying to realize the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change of net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphereby maintaining global warming below 2° Celsius and capping it at 1.5 C.   To date, the efforts have been centered mainly on de-carbonizing the two economic sectors- electric power and transportation as they are responsible for the most emissions.

Historic buildings constitute a considerable share of the European building stock. About 35% of the EU's buildings are over 50 years old, with 26.4% dating from before 1945 [1]. Improving the energy performance of historic buildings (i.e. buildings built before 1945) improves the internal comfort conditions while reducing the energy demand and therefore reduces the risk of fuel poverty.

Long-term renovation strategies are a requirement of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) for all member states. BPIE and national Green Building Councils for the H2020 project Build Upon2 published 8 factsheets discussing the initiatives of long-term renovation strategies of 8 countries (Croatia, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, Turkey and the UK).

On 9th March 2020 Eurac research is hosting a workshop at NOI Techpark (Bolzano) within the FESR project INTEGRIDS funded by ERDF/ EFRE/ FESR EU Program of Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen, under the grant n. FESR1042. The main objective of the project is the definition and analysis of energy grids, which must be considered as synergies between thermal and electric grids and as means to allow a broad implementation of renewable energy inside buildings and efficient energy grids.
