The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), as part of European policy to stimulate energy efficiency in housing, offers vast energy saving potential. However, presently the awareness amongst actors in the housing sector, in particular regarding the possibilities of the EPBD and energy certificates for houses, is still too low.
More specifically, house owners – private persons, homeowners’ associations or housing associations – don’t have sufficient knowledge or tools to use the energy certificates. IMPLEMENT aims to avoid this problem via information and sales campaigns in 7 EU Member States, whereby homeowners and professionals are informed about home energy certificates.
The European Workshop will reflect on the outcomes of the project and the national campaigns. Participants will learn more about “Energy efficiency in buildings” and about “Communication and Information”.
