Share this Post:

WEBINAR #1 - 3:00 p.m CEST – 9:00 a.m. EDT, organised in partnership with the Clean Energy Solutions Center.




The GBPN is hosting a series of four webinars on “how to” implement a successful policy package that targets energy renovations for residential buildings based on the findings from the recently launched Policy Tool for Renovation. Webinar #1 will focus on the overall performance of current best practice renovation policies for residential buildings.


Which countries or states have been successful in reducing the energy consumption of their residential building stock in the past ten years? What can other jurisdictions learn from their experience? What are the key factors that were significant in driving change? Front-runners from Europe and the United States identified through the GBPN analysis will provide insights into “how to” introduce and develop a best practice policy package that contributes to realising a reduction in energy consumption of the residential building stock.

Energy renovation policy has only recently come onto the political agenda and is an emerging field. The Policy Tool for Renovation compares and analyses twelve current best practice renovation policies for residential buildings from Europe and the United States, using fourteen criteria that define a “state of the art” policy package. The Tool shows where positive steps have been taken, where other jurisdictions can learn from these actions and where there is scope for further progress to help countries and region to reduce the consumption of their building stock.
