The event was organised by the European Federation for Public, Cooperative and Social Housing and hosted by the Committee of the Regions. It focused on the proposed European Directive on Energy Efficiency and was published by the Commission on the 22nd of June 2011.

The aim was to discuss with the stakeholders of the housing and energy sector and with the Committee of the Regions members, MEPs and Commission ‘s representative, the opportunities that this Directive offers to reduce energy consumption and energy poverty.

The conference helped to inform European decision makers of the reality at local level by drawing on information gathered through the POWER HOUSE EUROPE big Green Housing Exchange project financed by the IEE programme.
