This Call is also available here in German, in English and in Italian. The event will be in Italian and English, with the possibility of asking questions in German.   WHY RE-THINKING TECHNOLOGIES   Proper technology solution-sets (the gears in the picture) can enable a regenerative indoor environment for building users and for the Planet. Technologies will be the key to promote a shift of paradigm in building design from the “less bad” to the “more regenerative”

European Technology & Innovation Platforms (ETIPs) have been created by the European Commission in the framework of the new Integrated Roadmap Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) by bringing together EU countries, industry, and researchers in key areas. They promote the market uptake of key energy technologies by pooling funding, skills, and research facilities.

The digitalisation of the design and construction process of the European built environment is remodelling the way of work inside the whole value chain. The adaptation to this new work environment is a challenge to be faced by all stakeholders across the construction chain, affecting professionals such as architects and engineers, as well as contractors and construction workers. BIM could be regarded as the driving force of this transformation.

According to Eurostat 2017, 42% of the European population currently live in flats (condominiums, multi-owned properties, tenements, social housing, etc.). Retrofitting condominiums (tenements and flatted buildings) is highly strategic for local authorities, as a large number of private owners can be reached at the same time. Once the retrofitting is done, co-owners benefit from comfortable homes as well as from financial and carbon savings.   Fragmented ownership

The lack of the overall understanding of the impact of energy-efficient investments has made it difficult for policymakers to integrate it into their policymaking process. There is a need to gather evidence on the benefit of energy efficiency in ecological and socio-economic terms.

This report was prepared by the EEA and its European Topic Centre for Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME). The ETC/CME is coordinated by VITO/EnergyVille and is a consortium of European institutes that assists the EEA in providing support to EU policy in the field of climate change mitigation and energy. VITO/EnergyVille was responsible for assessment of progress towards energy efficiency targets.

What does the transition towards lowcarbon building stock mean for Europe?   European building stock is responsible for around a third of CO2 emissions, and the EU has set a target of 20 % reduction by 2020 and 60 % by 2030, from a 1990 baseline. Meeting these targets means focusing on decarbonising the power supply and making concerted efforts to reduce energy demand through retrofits of existing stock.
