Share this Post:

The Buildings Performance Institute Europe - BPIE is organising a workshop in Berlin on 24 January 2019, in the context of the Heat Roadmap project.


In its morning session, the workshop will focus on the link between district energy and building renovation and how to align governance in a strategic approach to combine and integrate the two areas, with presentations from the project and frontrunner cities.


In the afternoon, a Market Uptake Dialogue will present business cases and business strategies to encourage market uptake. The event will focus on how to address barriers for the market uptake of heating and cooling solutions supporting the decarbonisation of the energy system in gathering and discussing cases from the audience to investigate replicability.


Registration to both the morning and the afternoon session is free of charge. Participating in the afternoon session will require active contributions from the audience.


The workshop will build on the outcomes of 6 years of research within the Heat Roadmap Europe project building the knowledge, skills and capacity required to enable new policies and encourage new investments in the heating and cooling sector. Participants will be introduced to the data, tools, methodologies and results developed within the project that are necessary to quantify the impact of implementing more energy efficient measures on both the demand and supply side of the sector.
