Webinar: energy efficiency in multi-occupancy apartment blocks

Overview, results and lessons learned | 8 March

Heard of our Low Energy Apartment Futures collaboration? It’s a European project in which six partner countries have sought to overcome barriers to improving the energy efficiency of buildings with multiple owners. If not, you can get up to speed through our webinar from 14:00 to 15:15 on 8 March. And if you’ve been following progress, tune in to hear the results and lessons learned.

The sign-up will be available here ahead of the webinar.

CSE's Bridget Newbery is one of the speakers on the panel. She said: "The webinar is a brilliant way to share experience from the project – there'll be firsthand accounts of dealing with policy and practice from three of the partners. And in the Q&A, people can hear answers to questions that were on the tip of their tongue, or to something they hadn’t considered yet."

With 43% of Europeans living in apartments, improving the energy efficiency of these properties is critical to achieving Europe’s energy and carbon reduction targets. Yet retrofitting these properties is notoriously challenging, particularly when they are under multiple ownership. There are difficulties with identifying appropriate measures, engaging multiple stakeholders, securing finance and decision-making.

The webinar will be of interest to any stakeholders involved in apartment blocks. This includes property managers, local municipalities, housing associations, installers, and policy makers at regional, country and EU level.

Bridget Newbery has been managing CSE’s involvement with the project and will be one of the speakers during the webinar. She has liaised with colleague Michael McClelland on the case study buildings we’ve been tackling here in Bristol. Bridget also collated the policy recommendations that have emerged from this work, so is well placed to answer questions on what the next steps should be for policy makers on all scales of decision making.
