Very low energy buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

As of 12 January 2021, the 22nd edition of the European Energy Transition Conference – the annual appointment of the local players committed to energy transition – will open.   As they do every year, representatives of the public authorities, the economic and academic worlds and the civil society will meet up to debate and share their experience of local energy transition around a programme made up of over a hundred events – plenary sessions and workshops.
