This webinar presents the role of Energy Retrofitting of Building as a key part of cities’ energy transition, and how energy savings from retrofitting of buildings contains an important potential, that needs intelligent prioritizing to be applied in a cost efficient way in cities’ journey towards a low carbon economy as smart zero carbon cities.

Best practice actions will be presented from two of the Lighthouse Cities in the EU SmartEnCity project Tartu (Estonia) and Sonderborg (Denmark), also explaining how Energy Retrofitting actions are being prioritized as part of the overall transition of these cities, how they approach it and what their results and learnings are. 

In the webinar the participant will learn:

  • About why balancing energy retrofitting of buildings can strengthen a cost effective energy transition in your city
  • About how to strategically approach energy retrofitting of buildings to unlock energy saving potentials
  • About other cities’ learnings and results from concrete energy retrofitting actions  

Date:  19 April 2017

Time:   13:00 to 14:00 CEST
