Digital solutions for Europe’s buildings

How to tackle the challenges of the digital and green transition for a sustainable recovery

This "Think Digital!" conference discusses how well-targeted funding can support European-based industry in the building sector to achieve the objectives of the Renovation Wave and how the National Recovery and Resilience Plans can unlock renovation investments and help businesses to adapt to a net-zero emissions future.

With buildings being responsible for nearly half of the EU’s total energy consumption and 36% of all EU greenhouse gas emissions, energy renovation and retrofitting measures will be crucial in tackling the transformation towards a carbon-neutral and digital Europe. In the context of the Renovation Wave Strategy as well as the planned overhaul of the current Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, the EU’s unprecedented recovery package adopted earlier this year presents a unique opportunity. The €672,5 billion strong fund aims to accelerate Europe’s green and digital transition while mitigating the economic and social impact of the COVID-19 crisis. With the recovery fund, targeted investments will allow companies to develop and scale innovative projects such as digital solutions for smart and energy efficient buildings of the future.
