BUILDINTEREST ROADSHOW will bring the hottest topics and developments in financing in energy efficiency and sustainable building on a the road in a trip to take place consecutively in the Netherlands, Italy and France!
In the course of three events in February and March 2018 we will discover the importance of BUILDINTEREST’s active financing platforms and to explore innovative solutions for unlocking the energy efficiency market to take back home.
The World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED) are one of Europe’s largest annual conferences in this field. The 2018 conference will take place from 28 February - 2 March 2018 in Wels/Austria.
Having previously explored financing home renovation as part of this series of webinars within the frame of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums contract, this webinar looks at home renovation from the perspective of the end user. While capital may be readily available to finance renovation, services that combine technical and financial advice together are not always available and the complexity and the burden of implementing a renovation project may be too high for some householders.
There is huge untapped potential in the trigger-point opportunities to include energy improvements in other work offered by the general home repair, maintenance and improvement market, a thriving market for which there is an ongoing demand, not typically dependent on public sector stimulus. Including energy efficiency and micro-renewables measures at the same time as other works can help address barriers such as cost and disruption.
Accelerating investment into climate adaptation and sustainable energy are important to ensure a clean energy transition and helping the EU to meet its climate and energy targets for 2020 and 2030. This will bring significant benefits for all European citizens and companies in terms of jobs and sustainable growth, lower energy bills, health and security of energy supply as well as greater resilience of cities to a constantly changing climate.
