Joint Event with the URBAN Intergroup - 26th September

Funding For Energy Renovation as a Stimulus for Urban Regeneration

Jointly organized by the URBAN Intergroup and Renovate Europe, this event will take place on Tuesday 26th September in the European Parliament. 

The event is held in the context of the ongoing negotiations on the review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, due to be voted in the EP early October, and seeks to draw a link with available funding and opportunities to help Member States implement buildings-related legislation, through the Juncker Fund, the EIB and the next Multi-Annual Financial Framework, but also raising awareness about successful local initiatives.

Energy renovation can act as an important stimulus for urban regeneration.  In addition to improving living standards and reducing energy bills, the energy efficient renovation of a building can be an opportunity to roll-out a comprehensive urban strategy with the aim of tackling fuel poverty, boosting social cohesion and triggering local jobs. The event will tackle the following questions:

  • What are the benefits of including energy renovation in an urban regeneration project?
  • Which public and private financing models have been successful in local projects which achieve high energy efficiency standards?
  • Which opportunities arise for Energy Renovation in the Juncker Fund and in the upcoming Multi-Annual Financial Framework?
