Renovation workshop 2017

How to design energy efficiency renovation programmes for residential buildings

Date: 16–17 May 2017

Venue: The Hub, Drtinova 10, Prague, Czech Republic

 

Presentations from the workshop available now

Background and aim of the workshop

Most countries in the CEE region already have or are setting up renovation programmes for multi-apartment buildings. Some countries have run these programmes successfully for a long time, while others are setting them up more recently. Several countries have had such programmes for a while now, but on an “on and off” basis with mixed results in different years.

In single-family houses the situation is much less developed. There is only one programme in the entire region in the Czech Republic delivering renovation at scale since 2008, but several countries have recently started or are developing similar renovation programmes today.

Last year at the C4E Forum in Balchik the sessions on how to design such support schemes were among the most visited, the best evaluated and many participants requested a more focused follow-up workshop to be able to go more in-depth.

At the workshop in Prague we will the opportunity to collectively discuss issues such as:

  • Energy performance and technical standards
  • Eligible expenditures and setting the support levels
  • Technical assistance to the clients
  • Procedures for call for applications
  • Setting conditions for heat source replacement
  • List of supported products and appliances
  • Quality assurance and energy savings verification
  • Cost benefit assessment of the programmes

The workshop is organized by Chance for Buildings in cooperation with the Czech State Environmental Fund.

Who should participate

We cordially invite representatives of government (ministries, municipalities and implementation agencies/funds), business associations, NGOs and consultants from all over the CEE and SEE region. The workshop is especially relevant for policy-makers, policy implementers and other stakeholders dealing with the design of renovation programmes for residential buildings at political, regulatory and technical level.
