This event will highlight how the review of the Energy Performance Of Buildings Directive (EPBD) can use smart technologies to make the EU’s building stock energy-efficient, decarbonised, future proof and more comfortable to its citizens. To meet the revised EU climate targets and fully decarbonise the building stock by 2050, stronger policy measures must be put in place at the European level. Most of the potential of digitalization is still unexploited in the building sector. The revision of the EPBD creates a unique opportunity to deploy a broad range of energy-efficient and smart technologies.

The event is aimed at fostering a discussion between policymakers, institutions and stakeholders (industry experts, NGO’s, investors, property owners, facility managers, citizens, authorities and others), that will be engaged in the review of the EPBD.
