Don’t miss the Toolbox Session “Deep Renovation: Attractive – Acceptable – Affordable”
Friday 2 October, 9:30-11:00
Scaling up the renovation of building stock in cities is important, if ambitious climate, energy and public health goals are to be achieved. In the session, part of the Triple-A-reno Road Show, participants are given an overview of renovation challenges and opportunities in Europe and introduced to solutions being developed to address these.
A specific focus will be on our innovative gamified platform that drives building renovations by better responding to user requirements and removing market barriers. By means of a live demonstration, participants will learn about selected complementary tools of the platform, which help users assess the impacts of renovation activities on energy consumption, indoor environmental quality as well as health and well-being.
A key feature of the session is a panel discussion, which will feature Triple-A-reno demonstration cases Valencia (Spain) and Zagorje (Slovenia) as well as Eindhoven (Netherlands) and a regional think tank, all of whom will share insights on their deep renovation experience. The leading questions to be tackled by our esteemed panelists will focus on the affordability and attractiveness / co-benefits of energy efficient renovations and, further, panelists will explore approaches to raising awareness for – and increasing access to – renovation initiatives and programs.
