Have you got your facts straight on how to pay for low-energy buildings?
Find out the real answers from our speakers !

Test your understanding of financing sustainable buildings at EuroACE’s live polling event!

Why should we build sustainable buildings and how can they be financed? Join EuroACE, the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings, and VELUX A/S in an interactive live polling session at the Committee of the Regions building (Room JDE 52) during this year’s EUSEW.

Aimed at killing the myths that persist in the minds of stakeholders around the cost, feasibility, source for financing, and huge potential of building and renovating in a sustainable way, this interactive conference will directly involve its 160 participants through a series of questions, to which a selection of keynote speakers will provide answers in the shape of short presentations.

Despite its considerable documented benefits, energy efficiency in buildings suffers from a credibility deficit, particularly around the financing aspect.  This event will provide concrete examples of how financing models can and have already been successful in stimulating sustainable building.

Introductory Remarks: Adam McCarthy, President, EuroACE
Moderator: Nick Andrews, Fleishman Hillard
