Workshop | Deep energy renovation of buildings for HVAC professionals


Date Tuesday May 24
Time 16:15 - 17:45
Theme Energy
Location Dock 15

The decarbonisation of the buildings sector is vital to deliver on the EU’s 2030 and 2050 climate and energy objectives, given that buildings are responsible for 40% of total energy consumption and 36% of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. That is why, decarbonisation of the EU building stock requires energy renovation at a large scale: almost 75% of the EU’s building stock is inefficient according to current building standards, and 85-95% of the buildings that exist today will still be standing in 2050. Across the EU, deep renovations that reduce energy consumption by at least 60% are carried out only in 0.2% of the building stock per year. Two thirds of the energy used for heating and cooling of buildings comes from fossil fuels. The main objective of this workshop is to present:
1. Utilitary and widely applicable concepts for the renovation of existing buildings, underlining the critical role of HVAC professionals in the process;
2. Good practices that are widely applicable, have been validated and demonstrated with proven practices during field studies, that document the actual energy and cost savings, and/or realistic estimates from Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) that different renovations will achieve.
3. Practical guidelines applicable to different geographical locations and climate zones that have different priorities for heating/cooling during the renovation of existing buildings.
