21th March 2022 (11:30-12:50 CET)

The Renovate Europe Campaign hosted the webinar “One-Stop-Shops: Maximising their potential to accelerate energy renovation” on Monday 21 March 2022 (11:30-12:50 CET) via GoToWebinar.

In a context of rising energy prices and a spiralling climate crisis, reducing the energy demand of Europe’s leaky buildings is a priority. Technical assistance provided by One-Stop-Shops (OSS) has long been advocated as part of the solution to accelerating building energy renovation in the EU. Maximising their potential will be crucial if we are to boost the deep renovation of the EU building stock in order to increase our energy security and cut households’ energy bills.

One-stop-shops also have an important role to play in supporting the introduction of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) in the Buildings Directive (EPBD) and in driving the take-up of renovation measures implemented through the National Recovery and Resilience Plans, Cohesion and other EU funding as well as public programmes.

In this webinar, the Hungarian, Irish, Latvian and Polish National Partners of the Renovate Europe Campaign together with a representative from the City of Warsaw presented their experience with one-stop-shops in their country. At the same time, Adrien Bullier from the Commission’s CINEA provided insight into why and how we need to upscale OSS with the aim of boosting the rate and depth of energy renovation in the EU.
