A “deep” thinking around Minimum Energy Performance Standards – EuroACE Webinar

Share this Post:

EuroACE would like to invite you to an upcoming webinar entitled "A “deep” thinking around Minimum Energy Performance Standards", which will take place on Wednesday 5 May 2021 (10:00-11:15 CET) via GoToMeeting.


The first in a series of webinars entitled “Future-proof EPBD: let’s deliver beyond the Renovation Wave!”


In the context of the ongoing public consultation on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), we are hosting a series of three webinars focusing on different aspects of the EPBD which have the potential to considerably increase energy renovation rates in the EU. The series, entitled “Future-proof EPBD: let’s deliver beyond the Renovation Wave!”, will feature conversations around the development of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS), the update of Energy Performance Certificates and other buildings information tools such as the Digital Building Logbook and Smart Readiness Indicator as a way to boost digitalisation of our buildings while improving their data.


This first webinar will explore the introduction of MEPS, their regulatory nature and how these policy instruments fit into the EPBD ‘architecture’ (i.e. alignment with the EU climate goals, linkages with long-term renovation strategies, etc.). We will also look at which embedded elements could support their rapid roll-out and help ensure higher and deeper renovation rates for buildings in the EU.
