#Renovate2Recover


27th of October (09:30-11:15 CET)

Citizens are more concerned than ever before about their jobs, well-being and quality of life. Energy renovation stands at the intersection of the EU’s green priorities and growth objectives and is the linchpin to the EU’s recovery. What lessons can be learnt from France, Italy and Ireland about prioritizing energy renovation in the National Recovery Plans? How does the recently published Renovation Wave provide the needed financial, technical and regulatory impetus to channel EU Recovery Funds into buildings and help boost the rate and quality of energy renovations across the EU?

Simultaneous interpretation was provided in English/French/Italian for the duration of the event

Recording of the event will be available soon!
