Energy Efficient Buildings for a Sustainable Future: Transatlantic Exchange
About the event
The impending post-COVID era presents a unique opportunity to build less carbon-dependent economies in a way that addresses social, economic, health, and environmental challenges.
Looking toward the future, policy makers must implement the plans, incentives, tools, and technologies needed to truly “build back better” and improve day-to-day life for all people. In doing so, the built environment must not be overlooked. Buildings are a critical piece of the transition to a lower-carbon future. They are responsible for about 40% of global energy consumption and about one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions.
This webinar will bring together high-level decision makers and technical experts from the European Union and the United States to discuss leading policies and programs related to building decarbonization and energy efficiency in the built environment that are transforming the ways we build.
This event is organized by the European Union in partnership with the California Energy Commission, the Embassy of Belgium, the Consulate General of Denmark in Silicon Valley, and the Danish Energy Agency.
